Chisi, who confessed that he did the shooting unintentionally, said on the day of the incident, he was coming from work and upon reaching home, he found his two sons assaulting and battering their sister.

He claims to have tried to stop them but the children turned against him.

“They told me they actually desired the rare opportunity to deal with me. Laswell Chisi kicked me at the back of my neck. I scampered and fell to the floor. Stanford Chisi joined Laswell Chisi [in the act],”he said.

“I must state without fear or contradiction that I shot them dead unintentionally. There was no premeditation. I was totally confused. My psyche was pre-occupied the high and urgent need to defend myself and my daughter from my sons who had become beastly and murderous at the time” narrated Chisi in an Affidavit for court bail application.

The Prison Officer said when things got out of hand and as part of self defense he pulled a trigger.

“In the heat of the moment, I pulled the trigger and shot both of them. First Laswell Chisi then Stanford Chisi. They both died on the spot” reads the affidavit.

Chisi said since his wife died in 2013, he entrusted the daughter with the powers to manage the home and all along, the sons have been assaulting the daughter on upkeep money.

Meanwhile, Chisi has been granted bail. He paid K20, 000 bail bond, sureties of K10, 000 non cash each plus other conditions.

Among the conditions are that he should never leave Blantyre City without informing police, he surrenders his passport to Blantyre Police and that he should be reporting to Blantyre Police every Tuesday.
