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.
