  1. Malawi presdent is not serias with the issue of security

  2. Apha Mlomwe. Peter Muthalika should do something. The president seems to be a very playful man. He is not as serious as Chitsuro cha Njanji whom I miss very much. Mpaka Bakili akuwalowerera akuluwa.

    If all these things were happening in the Northern region, you people could by now have climbed a mountain ululating.Traitors!!!

    if all of you here known Junior you wouldn’t have to feel sorry for him, munthu ngati ankafuna kupha mayi ake ndi mpeni mukamvele ameneyo chisoni? osamangoyakhula apa musakudziwa kanthu.

    I know Junior so much…I ve been interacting with him,and dropped him at some drinking joints in town….koma the problem with the guy was that at 17 he was going out for clubbing alone,you just drop him and off you go,and he could remain alone at those drinking joints.He was a brother to me,was with him just two weeks ago…and I cant understand that he is gone.He was clever like nobody’s business.

    KOMA KUNENA MOOPA MULUNGU, A DPP BOMA LAWAKANIKA KUYENDETSA. IZITU ZANYANYA KWAMBIRI KUPOSA KALE LIJA. BWANJI MUNGOTULA PANSI?

  8. Katswiri says:

    Alot has been said on this matter. However it would have been better if Nyasatimes did a proper homework as to the real cause of this boy’s death. According to the inforamtion i have gathered so far, this boy was out to steal and thats where he mate his fate. He wasnt that a good boy as his behaviour lately was crookish. FYI certain man of Burundu National was murdered in Chigumula and this boy was suspected to be one of those who had a hand in the death. All In all, REST IN PEACE!!!

    Dont bring issues of politics when somebody dies . it is insulting to speculate that there was a quararel over a girl friend and so on .In fact its an insult to the deceased family

    ndiye mukapha muzidyatu nanga phindu nchani kupha zinthu zimene mukudziwa kuti simungadye ,kapena muli ndi chiwewe? mwandiophya anthu opanda chifundo inu. u will be judged acordingly by the almighty God .

  12. Livulezi river says:

    I know the boy personally, and that we have been interacting on several occasions as he used to be my former landlord’s son. He was a humble, down to earth boy with a bright future as he had just finished his IT studies at NACIT last year. I can’t understand the reason behind this gruesome murder! May his soul rest in erternal peace!!!! Pepani kwambiri Bambo ndi Mai Mukhova. Mulungu akhale nanu pa nthawi iyi ya zowawitsa!!!!!

  13. Angel of Doom says:

    The biggest problem we have in Malawi is believing everything that is in print.

    Has an eye witness come forward to confirm the deceased was robbed?

    The opening paragraph is by Nyasa Times and is designed to tell people security is getting worse since DDP took over.

    The real story starts with ” A body of a 17 year old boy was discovered in the morning” no one knows how he was killed, it could be two 17 year olds killing each other over a girl. How would a lack of security come into that?

    This boy went to chemboma village,(where ever that is) have you checked what he was doing there, who he went with or to see? What time was he coming home? for there to be no one to hear him shouting for help.

    Every untimely death is a death too many, but it does not help anyone to speculate and politicise.

    What is the government doing when people are being killed on daily bases? Security has gone to the dogd while the police are flocking to the road as traffic police officers to steal from road users especially minibus drivers? Where and What is that Bwana Dzonzi and Kanyama are doing? Security as become a major concern, How done thieves break into VPs house then Minister’s house but the government is jkust watching? Now if this happens to people who matter , look at what is happening to poor and toothless plebians like the boy in the photo?

    Please government, security must be a priority and not talking and talking.
