Chiwere was killed in Area 44 in Lilongwe after being stabbed with a screwdriver at the chest Friday.

National Police Publicist Rhoda Manjolo has confirmedthe arrest.

Manjolo said the suspect works  for Crossroads Hotel in Lilongwe as procurement clerk.

Facts of the matter which led to the death of the soldier are that on that particular day the victim was with his friend from Area 23 and on their way back to the Barracks they saw another vehicle joining the main road very close to them and when  they [victim and friend] saw that, they stopped their vehicle and came out, a quarrel erupted and they started fighting and in the process the unknown person stabbed the victim (now deceased) .

He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

“Let us avoid unnecessary quarrels in order to avoid losing lives, let’s be patient and learn to accommodate each other when using our roads,” advised Manjolo.

She however said Police were at a “critical stage” of the investigation.

Manjolo said she could not give any further information.

Kodi akanaphedwa Mzumara, a police mukanapita ku barracks kukamumanga mu soldier? MHSRIP.

jazila chigwenembe-balaka

such dearth are painful.and also such means of man slaughter is not good.
however most people think they are heroes if they become soldiers.a lot of people are beaten and humiliated by soldiers on the road,streets,stadiums and even beer drinking points.
if you know fighting why don’t you fight Tanzania who are robbing us the lake.
