This is barbalic, we Malawians are tired of these killings of innocent people whether they do it for rituals or jelousy or stealing, we the citizens we are living in fear that who will be next therefore we calling for death penalty back in our judicial system, if at all you want to bring sanity in our homeland.

This is a very sad and unfortunate story. The crime is horrendous. My heart goes to the family of the victim. I agree that the perpetrators should be punishment severely. However I feel for the victim’s family especially when they have to see pictures of their loved ones displayed on the media like this. Imagine the victims child(ren) and parents having to view these images. I think our media need to be sensitive to such issues. There is no need to publish the images of the victim’s naked, mutilated body


Why not just execute these? I found human rights disgusting in this among others. This is inhumane and uncalled for.



Always thinking of tribal lineages. Just go and join your uncle Chaponda Chimanga, you very useless characters in Malawi.
