Student hacked for stealing sugarcane in Kasungu

An 18-year old student at Chayamba Secondary School in Kasungu is lying in agony at the district hospital after he was slashed by a panga knife on his left leg in a foiled theft of sugarcane at a farm near their school.

Police have identified the victim as Samuel Makonde,a form three scholar, and arrested the owner of the garden, 34-year old Jonathan Kazimete. He is expected to answer a charge of grievous harm.

“The Student met his fate on the night hours of 18th March but his accomplices managed to escape the wrath of the owner only him being caught and injured on his left leg from a panga knife,” said Kasungu Police Station Spokesperson Edwin Kaunda.

He explained that the owner of the sugarcane garden upon suspecting that some people were without consent harvesting his crop, started guarding in the garden and on the sad day he saw five young boys helping themselves to his crop at around 21:00 hours hence the action.

Kazimete is from Yabwalo village in traditional authority Kaomba in the same district.

It is not known whether the action of the students is due to the famous hunger that has hit many districts in the country or just out of lack of discipline.

    Nthawi zina ana sukulu do not have discipline for these villagers toiling in their farms close to their schools.Sometimes they are so abusive in their languages when they take cheap liquor of kachasu and start stealing these people things however the punishment meted for these wayward boy was too heavy for him.Students are supposed to be at the campus studying and eating whatever the school provides them than stealing from the villages close their school.Extra food is the responsibility of their parents sending them extra money.

  22. Mfumu Ya Luso says:

    Hmm! Madala eni dimba, this was an over reaction on your part. Hacking a student because of mzimbe? This is different from a robber/thief breaking into your house where your security is compromised, but dimba la mzimbe? Honestly I don’t sympathize with you for getting nabbed by the cops. Both you and the student have broken the law, and yours is even more serious offence that committed by the student. Petty Thievery by student versus Grievous Bodily Harm by Sugarcane field owner.

  31. johnM says:

    The student deserved what he got. The gardener probably relies on the sugar cane to support his family and these stupid boys were out to make that family suffer. The police should release the gardener as soon as possible

Kodi ndiye kuti student akaba simbava, ndi mbava zingati zomwe zimapita ku chipatala after kuvulazidwa, nanga bwanji simumamanga ovulazwo? Chifukwa uyu ndi student ndiye sanalakwe kuba mzimbezo. Mumumasule mwini dimbayo iye siolakwa amateteza katundu wake ku mbava zolusa zomwe zimakolola katundu wake. Kodi mwini dimba akavulazidwa mukanatani nazo mbava zolusazo zonamizira kuti zikuphunzira?
