According to Mzingwitsa, on the day of the incident Mwale was driving a lorry to Chiteyeye location in Kasungu to ferry sand.

“Whilst on the way, children from the location jumped into the lorry while it was in motion and this angered the deceased,” she said.

cuffsAfter offloading the sand, Mwale went back and caught one of the boys who happened to be the suspect.

He started beating him but in retaliation the suspect took a brick and hit Mwale on the head and he fell down.

The deceased was rushed to hospital but he died on 20 September whilst receiving medical treatment.

Postmortem conducted revealed that death was due to blood clotting in the skull caused by impact the brick.

Mbiri Chosadziwa will appear in court soon to answer murder charge contrary to section 209 of the penal code.

  4. The deceased provoked the boy and it was a reaction to provocation that lead to the death of the man three times the age of the accidental killer.

  6. The name chosaziwa is the cause of killing bcoz chosaziwa means something that doen’t know. So, the boy didn’t know that he will kill the man.

  7. It was self defense, the man was biting the boy and the boy was trying to rescue himself from the man thats why he took a brick and hit the man without knowing that he will die.

  9. Very egregious and touching indeed,but why we tend to have monstrous stories in mostly these neighboring districts,Kasungu,Mzuzu and Nkhotakota?Govt must intervene in trying to spot out the root cause,it’s too much.
