A Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldier has shot himself to death in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The soldier Moses Ngwira was from Chilumba Garrison but was in DRC on a peacekeeping mission.
According to reports, the Malawian soldiers were expected to engage rebels today as part of their peacekeeping efforts and Ngwira had told his friends he would be the first to die.
He later shot himself in the head and a rifle was found at the scene of the incident. A suicide note purportedly written by Ngwira claims he was ‘tired of killing innocent people’.
Meanwhile, MDF is yet to comment on the matter and, on the authenticity of his allegations that the peacekeeping mission is taking the lives of innocent people instead of protecting them.
Below is the full note that Malawi24 has not independently verified.
Okondedwa makolo anga ndithokoze kamba kondiphuzitsa sukulu. Koma chisankho changa komwe ndidasankha kukhara msilikali ndichomwe chawononga moyo wanga. Chibwerereni kuno ndikungokhalira kupha anthu osalakwa, kuzuza anthu osalakwa.
Mtima wanga mtendere ndilibe mkana ndaganiza zoti ndikutsazikeni.
Mkazi wanga okondedwa chonde samala mwanayo tidzawonana moyo winawo.
Abale ndi azanga nonse miyoyo yanu pakuti Mulungu sakondwera ndi imfa ya anthu ochimwa.
(Dear my parents, thank you for educating me. But I made a very wrong decision to join the armed forces where my life has been ruined. Ever since coming on this mission in DRC, I have done nothing but robbing the innocent of their lives. I have never found peace with myself in doing such a deplorable act.
To my dear wife, please take good care of our child until we see each other again.
Friends and relatives, God does not approve of the death of the wicked [sic]).
Even an American soldier can not tell if he is the one who has shot and kill. You dont need not to be fooled with the movies they r plays. Malawi 24 you showed us you havent ever read war novels, and you r blank in common knowledge and your journalist are young and immature considering most of ur publications. Peace keeping you dont open fire unnecessarily.
He was an idiot
kikikiki! what is peace keeping? if a piece keeper is killing innocent people then what is peace keeping? if that’s what they do when they a there then they better come back b4 reaching sucide point.
In DRC it becomes dffcult to recognise a rebel.A rebel sometyms might be wthin an civillian audience so if u fail to attack him he might attack u may thats why innocent pple get killed.
Sonja ochitisa manyaz
May your soul rest in peace true innocent soldier.

Its sad that a life under our flag in a foreign nation has been lost regardless of the circumstances to the cause of death. Malawians we need respect our fallen soilders and there no one who can do that for us. And its also high time psychologist be counseling our deployed men in uniform, we understand they experience a lot of stress when they are out there
Rest well ngwira
Ziri bwino ngati wafa atalandira Yesu coz fallig to recv him no 4givns

Soldier, thats a bad decission. The riffle which could have used to kill you has been saved for another innocent soul. You could have taken the riffle to save the other innocent soul. That’s your dutty Soldier.
HE SAW WT WAS NT 4 HiM 2 SEE
lt seems the soldler was sorounded with enemies he had nowhere to run insted of not get tortured thats why the shot himself,REST IN PEACE SOLDIER

Rest in peace we don’t know what happened with u
I will be in place of him like a #pronoun

Who is someone to come and explain the real reson that our solder to kill himself?
I guess the story is twisted the guy has been killed thats the truth. Anyway this happens to be our ghetto neighbour’s son and seeing that his mother needed him so much and the way the family is he could not kill himself. Only God almighty will judge and tell the truth. REST IN PEACE
Rest in peace soldier.its high time MDF starts assesing these men in uniform before they deploy for stress
Exactly. …mental health is not checked too
May God grant u paradise
Wausilu ameneyi akanamupatsa chibonga osati mfuti

It seems he was shot by a white man, going by the picture. Might have been stressed.
May his soul rest in peace.

he done it wel ngt a dani akulephera kumupha ndy akanatani.its all bout tym.R,I,p soldier thats de sprit of soldier.was there to die
Investigation to his death would be the only thing to determine the cause of death, if Malawi has the capability to do so. Otherwise we will still be losing our kids out there without knowing why!
Why would Malawi investigate their?
Because, her own citizen is dead in a foreign land, in unusual circumstances. There are international laws governing that!
Y aru so wry? Its their choice
That’s a cover-up I can smell something fishy…..
This is impossible, something fishy!
Vuto lomatenga anthu thru corruption.Oyifuna military ndi mtima onse ntchito mkumawasiya.
Coward soldier rest in piece!……although u have failed to keep piece in DRC

the way how gun is and the position of the gun different with the story thats malawi.what i sein on the picture is some one kill him any way Rip.
He was not mature enough to be sent on a foreign mission. Psychologist would have figured signs earlier before sending him out there!
Kkkkk fake @ peace keeping hahahahahaha.ziopsa mfuti autalikitsa yekha dzikalibe kumupedza dzigawenga.
Shaaaa! mmodzi wapita. Ine ndwiiiiii kulingalira amwene, ndiye ngati msilikali akuzipha yekha nanga kuli bwanji ma civilian kumeneko.? Timvanso ena aziphanso kumeneko. Kuli zipolopolo zoyaka moto kumeneko.
MHSRIP! God knowz the Truth. i think Amuombera. pepani Akubanja.
Code of practice. .matter of death on duty should be confirmed and cross Checked by the spoke person for MDF and also the family. Please remember to give respect and grieving time to immediate family members.I’m UK death of a soldier is announced by the min of defence after 48 hrs when the family has been told. .All soldiers are told not to what’s up or talk about it to respect the family. However here in Malawi u r likely to see a bloody chopped head of your brother on Facebook before you even get told by akutchito
.the MDF launches a quick investigation an cause of death and motive is announce and recorded officially. .For example in streefull dangerous situation soldiers can murder a collegeu who refuses to fight on or show cowardice and also a soldier can kill himself by negligently discharge a shot from the rifle by accident and also a soldier can commit suicide using the rifle.regardless of what he said before investigation should be conducted for all purposes of record. .insurance etc.however stop speculation
“MDF SOLDIER DIES IN CONGO IN A SUSPECTED SUICIDE” that can be enough and u on lying menylon the name if the family has allowed. I.enjoy if the wife children etc knows.ZOMATI KUPITA UK CHIPATALA NDIKUKASUZUMILA UK MORTUARY TO SEE WHO’S DIED TO BREAK NEWS IS DISGUISTINGLY SELFISH AND LACK OF CONSIDERATION
Wakhuta moyo ameneyo
when something happens pipo talk like if there is no tomorrow jst imagine if you were in his shoes could you have managed to move even a kilometer? thats my question to you pipo???…rest in peace soldier…. good journey to grace land as (they) (soldiers)believe once he depart from this earth he joins another force/army somewhere ….condolences to the famiry..Amen

Eshiiiii dats gud/bad???????????
Sometimes he never killed himself, only God knows the trueth
So The Rest Watched Him Shoot Himself?
Modern technology to blame – social media and mobile phones make soldiers far away to be in contact with everything going on at home. Past soldiers would forget about home and would only espect the day he would recieve a bullet in his head for his mother country.
Kodi mumabisa bwanji soldier akaomberedwa ndi zigawenga
Amafuna alawe kupha munthu paja anthu amenewa akumagwira ntchito mpakana pension koma ngakhale bakha osamuwombera.
Every military has secrets….i doubt if its true. The guy was killed while in the line of duty!
pamenepo ineso ndikuonakuti zigawenga zamumpha man boma silimabwera poyera limabisala
Wachita kuzipha yekha masiku ano kulibe secret zimachitika mu umoyo even anthu amazimangilira malinga ndivuto apezana nalo
Could be too!
Why would they lie?
Government secrets #Lawrence

He heard sound of Guns he’s never heard before in his life, Congo has guns, even Americans get surprised. kuyopa mantha!!
Arrest him when his remains come back? Why doing this to himself?

If this is a true story, that’s he was coward. He had no soldier’s heart.
Soldier do not die akukadzala chinangwa
Kuganiza kopusa ngati uku nkumati angapulumuse nyanja??
Bring our soldiers back please
Eeeeshiiii…..he was a coward soldier who couldn’t solve his problems on his own. You can’t maintain peace with your soul and solve your problems on your own but you went to DRC to maintain other people’s peace and solve their problems, thats how coward he was!
Dnt not judge u dnt knw wht made him kill himself its btwn him and hiz God basi

Am sorry to see it that hannah, you took a wrong route much as your intetion was not to tanish the image of islam but you have issues with it. No man kills by himself or thers as Allah does not recieve the souls of such men. All laws are tiped by religious understanding that no man kills another or himself. Please stop rashing when you nothing to say. Remember kuti mulunga satsogolera athu ku zoipa ayi.

Many people dream to be a leader, some have positions but very few have the ability and the competence to fulfill this heavy responsability. Brothers and sisters, I think you dream of becoming a leader, a successful Lion. Let yourself be guided by the Light you are already on the road that leads to thought leadership. Become an excellent leader is a daily and lifelong learning. Be prepared to lead when times are hard, when your people look to you for directions. According to John C. Maxwell: “A leader has been defined as one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”. Are you prepared? If you hope to lead, you must first find the path before others can follow your directions. Remember that, being on the road, Humility, wisdom, loyalty and respect are needed. To be a member of the illuminati brotherhood and follow the light, guided, famous Rich and protected in life. contact him on this email [email protected] or via what’s app +2349027505789
