But why use the innocent boy’s picture in the story? To add more trauma to him I suppose

Such rascals very inhuman in behavior and conduct must be castrated and burned with fire in Kamuzu stadium when everybody is watching. Otherwise this innocent blood being shed somebody in power will have to pay for that.
