Killing iz every where nowadays its not about tumbuka


Kkkkkk za Mr Chabwera zalembedwanso pompa?? Koma kuwerengaku!

Decent Citizen

So somebody can just be shot for nothing like some lawless ghettos in America where people are high in drugs?Shame for this thug from Mzimba.He must have been high from Nkhotakota weed.Throw him in jail and throw away the keys in Mzimba river.He should never see a daylight again until he comes out in grey hair.


Is it ethical to display a dead person like that? Mr Chabwera may your soul rest in peace As for the young man who killed Mr Chabwera may the Lord touch his heart


zabwino palibe!


Noone is safe except the dead person in the mortuary.


May I warn the police officers against this not only unethical, but reckless behavior as tomorrow they will suffer the consequences, there is no friendship in criminal vocabulary but accomplice. Hence there is no assurance of sefty, soon you will reap the fruits of your unbecoming tendencies. Ask your fellow SAPs who are now faced with a predicament of being killed by criminals. Believe me when l say over 50 officers have been killed by criminals countrywide.
