Malawian man set alight in Johannesburg

A Malawian national was among migrants attacked in separate incidents on Johannesburg’s East Rand at the weekend, it has been reported.

According to South Africa’s News24 report,  on Saturday in Tokoza, a Malawian national was set alight after an argument.

He was allegedly attacked by an Ethiopian man but community members saved him and then turned on his assailant.

“Police rescued an Ethiopian national from the community and arrested him on charges of attempted murder. This followed an incident in which a Malawian national who went into the suspect’s shop was allegedly [doused] with paraffin and set alight after an argument,” said Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini in a statement.

“Community members who witnessed the incident helped the victim and later attacked an Ethiopian national. The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.”

Disagreement is healthy among us but humanity is lacking in these war torne men. Migration is health too, people should explore over opportunities else where. Malawi is for us all but let us make individual development from what we realise wherever we go. Winawe wakula ndi umphawi. Its better to die in the wilderness than dieing of hunger, diseases, poverty. Wolemera kukhala okuba okha not the hardworking.
