Angry mob kills estate owner in Ekwendeni over death of tenant

Director of Kamwe Estate in Ekwendeni in Mzimba District, Yotam Chitaya Mungululuka, has been killed by an angry mob following the missing and death of his tenant.

An eye witness says  Mungululuka hired a young man from Chikomplazi to be his tenant but the young man went missing four days ago.

The director reported the matter to his relatives only to find his dead body with private parts and teeth missing on Thursday.

Mungululuka then took the dead body to the mortuary in his Toyota Hilux but when he went to report the death to relatives at Chikomplazi, an angry mob started beating him severely until he was taken to Ekwendeni Mission Hospital in a wheelbarrow where he was admitted leaving his vehicle there.

He was reported dead later on Thursday.

Police have always told the public not to take the law into their own hands. Investigations are underway

Wrong person may have been targeted here, sad indeed. That’s the problem with mob justice.

Yottamu, what a pillar of help and bond between the Chitayas in Chimbongondo and Kamwe. He was the true picture of the late Mgululuka. May HSRIP

You must be a sick person and a sad one. Mob justice happens across the country. a few years ago six elderly people were set on fire alive in Mwanza. And you have can come here and talk about atumbuka. Sad

Its very bad to openly expressed tribal prejudice in that manner and more in particular on a public forum. If the manner in which such prejudices are expressed was inculcated at an early age, then, it is very sad for it has taken a foothold in the mind. Mob justice happens in a very society. There is no particular grouping that is fallible.

PATHFINDER that’s not the way to say it. Mob justice is a national, continental issue. It’s not tribal or regional. Think before you comment otherwise you show your foolishness so plainly. To Mr yotam, am sorry man for this and i do not think you killed the tenant for from where will those guts come from to approach the relatives of the tenant and report his death? May your soul and of the tenant rest in peace

Why kill him? If they were suspicious they were supposed to report to relevant authorities. Mxii!!

Am not tumbuKa to start with but I know there are 2 types of people. 1. Those who think before they comment. 2. Those who comment and think later (your group). Mob justice is a national problem. Police units have been burnt across the country.
Your comment shows you are redundant. Abraham Lincoln once said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than speak out and remove all doubt”. Now I know why. You are exactly the type of person your party needs.

You are spot on in so far as conflict resolution is concerned and a quote on Lincoln tells it all.

This is too bad. So sad. Mob justice always makes wrong perpetrators suffer. We have laws in the country.

How do you feel after posting this comment? A clever person or a useless coward who hides behind the computer to say things he would never say in public.

Unfortunately that is the behaviour of people being led by a leader that is completely out of touch.
