Barbarism in Malawi army: A minority tarnishing the image of the MDF

228

Soldiers in Blantyre have severely beaten a civilian whom they accused of pummeling one of the soldiers.

According to reports, the civilian who resides in Chilobwe beat up the military officer at a drinking joint on Saturday.

The disfigured soldier then went to Chichiri camp where he somehow convinced his fellow soldiers that beating the Chilobwe resident was a good idea.

MDFJust as they would when going for battle, the military officers on Sunday boarded their dreaded Tata Truck and went looking for the soldier beater.

They found the person and took him to Chichiri camp where they heavily beat him.

When they decided that it was enough, the soldiers took the man to Chilobwe Police and told the cops that he was a suspect who was caught beating a soldier.

But the law enforcers refused to keep the civilian fearing that he may die at the police station.

As we published the story, the soldiers had taken the man to Limbe Police.

  5. These Soldiers desire to be removed from their position. How can they take law in their own hands, no one is above the law .The very same citizen they are beating are the ones who pay tax for them to get paid.Being a soldier does not mean you are superior that anyone. They are damaging the name of the country and the reputation of other soldiers who are there to serve the nation.
    Shame on them they must be prisoner at Maula prison and use their energy to do hard labour .
    Ministry of justice should take charge of this, we cannot leave in fear of the people who are employed to protects us.

  6. Ur busy camparing mdf with USA soldiers,dont u know that war is too expensive? You cant win it without enough resources. Our MDF is full of world class soldiers if u dont know. Our soldiers are the best in the world. But what matters is resources.. Don’t 4get that it is only fire that can stop fire

  7. the problem of most of our soldiers they never been at war since they came from trainning! they are trying to show their powers on civilians? I thought soldiers and police are protecters to civilian citizens? zinatha kale zoti nsilikali mmodzi akapanga misbehave namenyedwa pamatchansi kuchilinde kamba komwa mowa wa eni, inu nkumakabwela ndi ma tata 47 odzadza nkumazalimbana ndimudzi onse?

Guns,bombs,tanks,vehicles,uniform made in USA, even support and command from azungu through UN. Mozambique kuchita detain boat, kuotcha ma truck a Malawi. TZ kuopseza pa Lake Malawi. Inu mukutibula ma civilians

    • Its a criminal case if he loses his life, you are trained on how to handle civilians who happens to breach the law without causing death and heavy injuries, you are part and parcel of law enforcement agencies such that you know many ways of correcting a civilian with such kind of behavior, unlike the way you have done. Learn to put a demarcation between personal issues and official or business issues that needs to call support from your fellow armed forces men.
