According to reports in Standard Media of Kenya, Chirwa, a journalist who was also a correspondent for Nyasa Times  and a son to Malawian High Commissioner to Kenya, retired Brigadier  Marcel Chirwa was murdered near his college in Limuru.

He was robbed of his mobile phone and other personal effects.

His colleagues said they had been at a local bar watching football at about 7pm when the incident occurred.

The assailants escaped soon after the killing and no arrest has been made so far.

Kenyan Police said Sunday a hunt for those involved is ongoing and moved the body to the mortuary.

Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo said they are yet to know the motive of the murder but suspect there had been a fight between the deceased and his attackers.

“We were called and informed there was murder at a bar and when we arrived there we found the man had been stabbed all over the body,” he said.

The deceased colleagues have already recorded their statements.--Source: Standard Media

Dennis's Voice

this story is not accurate he did not get into a fight and he did not die outside the bar. please when reporting such sensitive news you should have full details of what really happened that night
R.I.P Dennis you where such a humble guy you never bragged or showed off, if we didn’t get to know you very well we wouldn’t know that your father is an ambassador for Malawi

Very shocking! RIP




Kenya is known for such brutal murders. Those of you who have lived in Kakamega, Eldoret, Nakuru, Lang’ata, Nairobi etc these are every day stories.


The child of a diplomat should act as if he himself is also a diplomat. he should have been at home watching the game. RIP to him and let this be a lesson to others who like to frequent places of ill repute in the name of having fun.

His father Marcel is a good friend and I personally feel very sorry for the early departure of Chirwa’s son so may his soul rest in peace.
