Misozi: Murder suspect for killing Gasa (insert)
Linda Gasa: Chanthunyais accused of murdering her in 2010

The court was dead in silence with sombre faces as the prosecution showed the dead body of Linda Gasa.

Chanthunya was in the court when the pictures and video clip of his former girlfriend were shown.

The murder suspect sat motionless and his face expressionless.

In 2010, Chanthunya escaped to South Africa after being questioned by police in Blantyre following the discovery of Gasa’s body at his private cottage in Monkey Bay after  an exclusive story which was revealed by Nyasa Times.

He was arrested by International Police in January 2012 at the residence of a Malawian woman in Rustenburg, South Africa’s North Western Province, before being extradited to Malawi for trial last March.

The state is expected to finish parading its witnesses Friday.

Gasa, who was a second-year accountancy student at Malawi College of Accountancy, is said to have gone missing in August  2010.

Indications were that Chanthunya, who is married to South African citizen Prudence, was in a relationship with Gasa and they were expecting a child which Chanthunya allegedly did not want to take responsibility for. He thus resorted to killing her.

It is alleged that Chanthunya tried to dispose of Gasa’s body twice before burying her underneath the bathroom in his private cottage.

Malawi police said nine bags of cement were used to make the concrete to bury Gasa’s remains.

Chanthunya first attempted to bury Gasa in the nearby bush but a gravedigger hired to do the job struck a huge rock and could not proceed.

This moron will walk to freedom because there is no justice under the sun. But judgement day of the Lord is coming, without Chitsakamire and without tippex. He shall burn in hell if he doesn’t repent.

Throw this bastard to mikuyu prison already, the court has other complicated cases to deal with, thiis is a straight forward premeditated murder case. Life or death penalty is what the court should be debating on period

A bad decision in life can ruin the rest of your life. If you live without Jesus christ, you are always in danger. Please let us repent so that we live holy life. Amen!

I honestly don’t know why we are wasting scarce resources debating the obvious? This Chanthunya fellow is a cold blooded murderer and deserves no mercy or sympathy.
