The death of 10 Malawians in South Africa is a tragedy.They did not deserve to die in that manner.However, during South Africa’s lockdown there were restrictions imposed and those who did not adhere to them were facing the music.

I understand that sneaking out during the lockdown is illegal and should be banned, but OMG stoned to death… They must have experienced the most brutal minutes before their death. Who has the right to stone somebody to death without a trial? What will South Africa do with those killers?

I blame APM for their untimely death, why not quickly repatriate the Malawians abroad. APM is heartless president. What did Malawians do to deserve this witch, APM?

Because APM took an oath to protect venerable Malawians home and abroad and he recently said the right to life is above all other rights. Looking at this this witch clearly meant the right to death is above all other rights as long as he is the president.
