If the murderer confessed, then the traditional leaders were right. Moreover it seems Mose was well known in their area. It seems he was getting wealth through evil means.

The police are just another rubbish mob, they don’t deserve to receive citizens tax money at all!! How can they hand him over reluctantly without proof, why didn’t they hand real killers who are stealing all the monies for buying medications and running ambulances in the hospitals, Those top thieves in government are killing more people daily where as this man story could easily be a fabrication needing to be proved!!

The police reluctantly surrendered the murderer to the mob, expecting what?
While it is hard to feel sad for this man’s death, the action by police is very much unprofessional. I wonder if they are scared of the people these days after the so many confrontations, in which they failed to act with integrity?

We can’t be sure that the mob gets it right every time. It should not be encouraged.

This is the only way to stop senseless murders in our beloved country, good job Msalu leaders.
Everyone contemplating to murder anyone in cold blood should be prepared for this sort of fair judgement, an eye for an eye.
