86

Salvation Army Pastor Major Geoff Friend  from Australia who was attacked by unknown people in Malawi when he was on his preaching tour has died, Police say.

Major Geoff Freind

Major Geoff Freind was attacked in Malawi.

He was attacked when he remained with two weeks to complete the tour.

Police Publicist James Kadadzera told the media of the attack and indicated the law enforcers were still probing the incident.

Mr Freind was put in an induced coma at a Johannesburg hospital, but died on Wednesday.

His wife and four sons had travelled to be by his side.

Mr Freind’s brother-in-law Peter Walker said his family was devastated.

“Geoff was a great family man, he loved his family,” he said.

“The family was the centre of his life.

“He was a great dad and he’s going to be terribly missed.

“None of us can believe what’s happened and we’re each coming to terms with that.

“It’s going to be a massive hole.”

Mr Walker said little was known about the circumstances of Mr Freind’s death but it was believed he was attacked by a group of people and sustained serious head injuries.

“We don’t have a lot of information and that’s not been our focus,” he said.

“We’ve been praying for a miracle but that’s not the news we’ve been able to announce today, we’re sorry.”

  5. That’s why God is keeping on punishing us,ngozi zosatha pamsewu njara, sangatidalitse ataa, tiyeni titengepo gawo pakupempherela chiwanda choipachi kuchoka mdziko mwanthu

  6. That’s because people are smoking too much Chamba these days. they don’t know what a crime is, the world is now going with its desire. people hearts, mind and humanity are now turns from human to wild animals shaaaaame

    • #shupie Ntaba. Does that imply that it should have been the albino killed and not the white man? Shupie, all human being life matter, its not about the white man’s life or an albino’s life. The way u put it its like as if an albino’s life matters less. I find ur comment very disturbing

  7. Fuck it, how many Blacks are Beinq Killed In Australia??those Blacks are Black Australians they were Born there there Parents lived there 4 Hundreds Of years Bt they Treat ’em as Aint Shit

  8. May the Almighty comfort the bereaved family after loosing their dear relative, who died painfully whilst performing a noble task. To those who did this Devilish task, may God deal with them accordingly.

  9. Thats new malawi iknow,killing albinos persecuting opposition leaders,insulting men of God,will punish this country with its deadly leaders.

  10. Anyone who kills men of god do not stay long they die mysteriously or they are either brutally murdered by their own gang members or killed by animals.

    • So it was ok if it were an albino being killed? Is that how best u can comment on the matter? What kind of reference is that? Ur very sick
