A piece work labourer in Mulanje is battling for his life at Mulanje district hospital after a mob beat him up on suspicion that he killed his friend over disagreements of K100.
Police spokesperson in Mulanje, Gresham Ngwira said Mayeso Maxwell is expected to answer murder charges after he is discharged from hospital for allegedly killing Enoch Nawaja, 30.
“The two went out to do piece work as they do every day and they earned K1,000. They spent K900 on liquor and remained with K100 which his friend failed to account for and the fight broke out,” he said.
The police publicist said Nawaja was instantly killed.
