Michael is my brother. He loved living in Malawi. He was definitely not a racist. My family is heartbroken that this could have happened to him in the land that he loved so much. Please find his killers.

Sorry for the loss of your brother. From what I heard, your brother was a good man and he loved Malawi. The way this story has been reported it sounds like there was an eye witness and hope the killers are caught and brought to justice. My condolences to your family. May your brother’s soul rest in peace.

Lisa, my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I’ll always remember the good times with Mike in high school. He was always fun to be around. I often thought of him after we lost touch, and when I found out how well he was doing I was so happy for him. He will be missed by many. I hope they find whomever did this. Its truly saddening when a good soul is taken from us too soon, and worse knowing he did not deserve to die this way. Love and hugs to you and your family. RIP Mike.

You cannot generalise Malawians over one murder. Murder occurs every country. Savages are in every country. This comment portrays your shallow thinking.

Well, it’s sad that a life has been lost, but I also feel you are too strong on your evaluation of us Malawians. Yes, some of the issues raised may be true for a certain locality but generalising it as if the situation is like that for the whole country is unfair to say the least. May the soul of the deceased rest in peace and may those gruesome murderers be brought to justice

Glad you left our country you trailer park white trash. You come here steal our resources and think there won’t be any consequences? Africa is for Africans. Who told you that we want some white trash to come here and change our way of living? It’s sad that this happened, however, murders happen everywhere even in the western countries. Have you read/watched about those school massacres by young white men in the US? Please, take your white trash ass out of Africa and don’t come back. You were never invited here!

Stupid white trailer trash like you leave your white trash countries to come steal resources from our beautiful countries in Africa . We are sad with what happened to Mr Maglioli but murderers are everywhere. Have you watched about those young white men murdering innocent school children in the US? Those are the ones I call salvages. Glad you took your ass out of our country because you were not invited in the first place. It sounds like Mr Maglioli was a better man than the racist trailer trash you are. May his soul rest in peace.
