Apart from the killer the mother of the child deserves to be punished as well. Why did she leave the 3 months old child sleeping alone?

Why was the child targeted in the first place? If there were differencies, how were they involving this innocent child to deserve this painful death? Koma mahule inu , kuli bwino muzingotsekeredwa basi athu osapemphera inu

Ndili ndi zaka close to 50 koma sindinaveko zithu za nkhaza ngati izi. Inu a mabungwe (CSOs) bwanji simulakhulapo when things like these happens? Bwanji mumangoveka pa za ndale zokhazokha (kuti mupanga ma demo). Bwanji simuchita join ma cases ngati awawa? Bwanji simupereka ndalama zanu to speed up these cases? Nanga ma NGOs and UN agencies, Save the Chidren, UNICEF, “is this outside youryour mandate?” This woman must be brutally and urgently killed. Pakufunika quick justice apa, a Police atipatse ife timubaye chimtengo ku nyini kwakenso chitulukite mkamwa basi.


A point well made. CSO, UN Agencies, UNICEF, Women’s League , Ministry of Gender etc where are you. This should be a cause for national outcry!
