A 50 year old Malawian soldier under the United Nations peace keeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been killed in a rebel ambush.
The Malawi Defence Force identified the soldier as Dyson Mayao from Ntata village in chief Mabuka’s area in Mulanje.
The Malawi Defence Force says Mayao worked as a motorman in Erengeti when the rebels ambushed the UN peace keepers.
According to a report on BBC, Mayao was the only peace keeper killed in the ambush that also killed 29 other lives that include a nurse and villagers.
The rebels are said to be operating from Erengeti forest.
