Nsanje student beats up school watchman after suspension, at large

Police in Nsanje are hunting for a 19 year-old Form 3 student at Magoti Community Day Secondary School (CDSS), Jereman Bandawe, for physically assaulting the school’s watchman days after he’d been indefinitely rusticated from the institution.

Nyasa Times’ correspondent in Nsanje Charles Jingini said Bandawe had been a given a punishment, together with six others to dig rubbish pits, for breaching the school’s rules.

But, it seems, the students were not happy with the school’s decision on them.

“They plotted to contaminate the headmaster’s water at his residence by disposing in it wastes,” reported Jingini.

Nsanje Police publicist sub-inspector Samson Balaka confirmed that after the incident Bandawe was completely dismissed from the school but that latter could not take it again.

“On Wednesday (last week), around 6pm, he went to the school again and started knocking at the doors of the main administration block,” said Balaka.

He added: “When the security guard on duty asked what he [Bandawe] was looking for, he was beaten up severely.”

Bandawe hails from Esnart Village, Traditional Authority Mbenje in the district.

It is not true that all people resident in Nsanje are Sena. There are people who are there for employment ETC, who have children going to school there. For your own information, there are in Nsanje Senas, Mang’anjas and Lomwes. If you studied african history on migration of tribes, The Senas migrated into Malawi from a place called Sena in Mozambique and found in Nsanje and Chikwawa the mang’anjas and some Lomwes from neighbouring Thyolo. There is no need to talk ill of other tribes as this and that. Infact there are, those who are educated and not educated people… Read more »
