  18. Please please!!to all those in authorities conduct a massive civic education to our friends living within and around the borders boundaries of Malawi.These kinds of death must not happen again.R.I.P.

  19. For me I don’t have anything to say but I am blaming the government Malawi especially ministry of defence in the borders. They are allowing stranger people to enter into our country and to destroy us. Please Malawi let’s open our eyes and see what is happening,we are losing very important people that can make our country to be known on the map. May his soul rest in eternal piece and I will miss you until the day of Christ,shaaaaaaa

  22. Where is the one bring that object to that disceased ? Shaa its sock story and i hv many questions than answers ,May his soul Rest in peace but still waiting report from police and you the our dear reporters you must bring that report

  23. i don’t think it’s fair kuika picture yamunthu omwalira pa social media (kapena mukufuna kutchuka?) mukanangolemba nkhaniyo tikanakhulupilirabe

    • no, the picture shows it was taken in a hospital setting. It was wrong, whosoever took it or authorised the taking doesnt deserve to be in the medical field, a section in the hippocratic oath reads ‘ I will respect the privacy of my patients, even after the patient has died , for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know’ ..ethicaly, who soever did it, violated the oath.

  24. oooh my God so sad …am shocked rest in ertenal peace dear brother…..my condolences to the family

    • Hallo Charles,why am I thinking your arguing on a point of wat I believe ur ignorant of it??
      In journalism class,the provision of footage/pictures are there for (vitality) visual appeal….. sympathy,
      And for your information the writer prior provide a warning of disturbing picture,
      Therefore I must say sometimes ts good just get information from which on personal basis you think it’s nonsense.

  39. But what is your problem you Malawi24? You mean you have nobody with skills to cover up such graphic images? Send your journalists to say, Nyasatimes to learn some ropes on this. It is not enough just to write ‘WARNING: Graphic Images ‘, as if it’s the title of your story. KUMAKHALA NDI UMUNTHU, KomansonProfessionalism, Eish!!!!

    • If I may ask…do you personally why they provide a footage in news writing,
      Comeone,this is all for vitality….visual appeal…for sympathy….the news is about the fear of being bombed,and you expect puting the picture of the demise victim in church praying???
      Personally I agree this is the right chronological order one would’ve follow to deliver this news

  40. Mmmmmmm..nditangomva ndimaona ngati anthu akungokamba Aaaaaah brthr wanga wapita udakali wang ono amayi ndi madala akusowa chonena mlungu afungatire mzimu wako…RIP

  41. Don’t post such images online. Think of how the relative’s of this person would feel once they see this picture
