Appeal Case as his strong lawyer says, You cannot defeat those Judges with such silly matter unless you want to buy them like a goat. The man deserved the sentence full-stop. Any best lawyer on the land cannot take chances just because the Judge comes from your region. This man is evil and all his businesses must be closed.You cannot defend such childish man. Komanso nayo Chancellor College ndi MBOLA and thus the reason nobody fails.

Lego, I agree with you and this man is very stupid and there was point to deny the woman’s pregnancy because of a prostitute and Bingu’s daughter. The Judge gave excellent ruling for LIFE. Some of these Lawyers only seek money for rubbish. No Appeal case there and you lawyer dont waste your time.

But his South African wife is really a prostitute. My friend was sleep there when she came to Malawi and slept again with her in South Africa when we were there. She has very expensive sofa in South and most assistance to her parents comes from her.

The woman advised my friend to use behind door and keys were there to avoid being gunned down.… Read more »

So there are two prostitutes then – the wife as well as YOUR FRIEND.

Look at both sides, don’t only be placing prostitution placards on women only, men too.

You have labelled the woman a prostitute but as for the man, u have only labelled him “my friend.”

Am just saying..

Death sentence is much better than spending the whole life with nsikidzi, nsabwe and bad food in prison. The prison has no class and when you think of driving BMWs, Mercs, VWs, Audis etc it pains a lot. One year looks like 20 years. I can hang myself.

Death sentence would have been too easy for this murderer, he needs to rot in jail slowly while he thinks about unspeakable crime that he committed

If it was not for South Africa repatriating him back to Malawi on condition that his trial would not end up to capital punishment, this man could have been sentenced to death. He relatives can still press more charges for reparations for her irresponsible death of his girlfriend whilst under him.

Ana anthu tikamaapatsa maina, we should be careful. Misozi’s life has ended in tears, in tragedy. I sympathise with the soul of Linda Gasa (you didn’t have to suffer this cruel death). I sympathise with Linda’s family (you lost a beloved relation in the most gruesome fashion). And finally, I sympathise with Misozi’s family (one family member’s silly personal decision has dragged you through unspeakable grief and public condemnation). I feel for you.
