Excessive Kachasu intake claims life in Mangochi


A 58 year-old man in the eastern district of Mangochi has died after drinking locally brewed beer called Kachasu excessively without eating any food.

Kachasu claims a life.

According to Mangochi Police Deputy Public Relations Officer Amina Tepani Daudi, on 2nd October this year the man Chrispin Njanje went to Nabale Trading Centre to sell firewood.

Later on he used the proceeds to buy and drink Kachasu the whole day and never returned home. “On 3rd October this year Njanje was found lying dead along a dusty road in his village of Mwalembe,” said Daudi.

Postmortem conducted at Nkope Health Centre revealed that the death was due to drinking Kachasu excessively without taking food.

The deceased hailed from Mwalembe village, Traditional Authority Nankumba in Mangochi district.

Njanje’s death comes days after a 75 year-old woman in Balaka district also died due to drinking excessive Kachasu without eating any food.
