Malawi army called in to quell Chilobwe violence

Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers have been called in to help quell protests and violence in Chilobwe, Blantyre as residents are battling with police over a murder suspect.

MDF soldiers called from barracks to help

Police are currently firing tear-gas to disperse an angry crowd which is swelling around Chilobwe police unit demanding the release of a murder suspect who is in police custody.

Eye witnesses said the suspect went to steal from one of the houses in the high-density area after noticing that the owners of the house were not there.

However, a nine-year-old boy, the son to the owners of the house, found him red handed stealing and managed to identify the suspect.

This forced the suspect to kill the boy who was just coming from school in a bid to cover up evidence and covered him in beddings.

The parents found the boy in a pool of blood, with machete wounds, murdered.

The suspect is said to have surrendered himself to police in fear of mob justice.

But angry residents, baying for the blood of the suspect, have broken the police unit’s window panes.

They have also closed roads and the situation is getting out of hand and all shops in the township are now closed and all business is at standstill.

That’s stupidity, you kill somebody & hand yourself in for murder why dont just walk away with theft? Now an innocent child has lost his life for nothing very sad indeed.

This is why a death penalty is being recalled by people but the govt seems adamant. A self surrender to Police should not take even bail out before sentencing. But shall we hear, “the police are investigating” later own depending on who he is, the story will end and yet the parents have lost goods and a life.

The evil spirit blood shed of Chakwela and Mtambo still torturing innocent people and now children. Malawians wake up and reject this evil spirit of Chakwela, Chilima, Mtambo and Trapence. These guys have to repent for our country to be a Godfearing country again. You started blindly, you can now see the results.

That is the stupidity of all time.What has that got to do all these people you have mentioned.Don’t show your foolishness here.Read the story first before you start commenting.You must first repent before you tell others to do so.Stop having your natural hatred on people who want to transform our country which is now divided because of nepotism,corruption etc.Hope you have taken note of my words.

The man must die. Why should he be sent to prison where he will spend our taxes to be fed?

If you don’t know and you think you know
You end up writing nonsense
Wroth of God is in Malawi because God has landed in Malawi and you reject him.
