Good commendable job. Smoke them out and pound them hard. Malawi should revert to the old good days when one could leave clothes outside the house and no one could steal them or one could walk on foot at night from Area 3 to Chinsapo or Likuni or Ndege to Chikanda without meeting thugs.

This is commendable job. Please get rid off all these dangerous animals. They are a threat to our peace. Don’t listen to any stupid Rights Organization that can try to defend them. These criminals have no right to life. They have voluntarily forfited their right to life by turning themselves into criminals.

Remove the words”POLICE ACCIDENTALLY SHOT DEAD THE SUSPECTS.”That is their duty to harm the robbers after all there was exchange of fire with them.And my question to the new reporter is,since we have been told that they were ten robbers and two were shot dead and where are the remaining eight robbers?

Kudos to the police for killing these evil doogs. To hell with the Weekend Nation who are being paid by evil masters to put on spotlight the police who are doing their jobs of protecting us. The Weekend Nation should research about the people who have lost their precious lives due to these evil doogs. When they come to your house they don’t respect the lives of innocent people. As a protest to that article I am not buying Weekend Nation for the next four weeks.
