Where are our Human Rights Organisations this time? Who has got the right to life the killer or the one who is killed. Here the life of an innocent policeman is gone and you learned people claim that the life of the criminal should be spared because he has the right to life. What a nosenses Ndalama a Malawi zatisokoneza makhalidwe ndi maganizo.
