Police in Dowa district are hunting for a 44 year-old man for killing his 24 year-old son with a bicycle fork after the two fought over maize.

Blood.He identified the father as Jimmy Chimoto and the son as Wilison Jimmy.

“What happened was that the deceased borrowed maize from his father a couple of days ago, and he was asked to return the maize but he told his father that at that time he did not have the maize to pay back,” Kaponda said.

This angered the father who took a bicycle fork and started beating up his son on the head.

Later, the son became unconscious and he was taken to Dowa District Hospital where upon arrival he was pronounced dead. Postmortem conducted at Dowa District Hospital revealed that death was due to head injuries.

Police are yet to arrest the father who will be tried for murder as he acted contrary to section 209 of the penal code.

    1. They were at a drinking joint. Did they go to the drinking joint because of hunger? Did Cain kill Abel because of hunger? Chiwanda chakupha has always been there before, its always there now and it will always be there. With plenty and abundance maize or without maize. With APM as president or without APM as president. Is this ur first time to hear of murder at the drinking joint?

Amalongelerana ngongole yachimanga ku mowa, sadamvane, bambo watenga chitsuro chanjinga, ‘mutu mwa mwana naye kho! Kho! Kho! Then iweyo ur trying to blame that on the president?? Ask ur parents akuti kunaliso njala yadzaoneni mu 1949. Mu 2001 /2002 kunaliso njala yovuta. Ndiazimbo angati amene iweyo Bamus Bandah unamva kuti anapha ana awo chifukwa changongole yachimanga?? Or do u think kuti njala imeneyi yachita kulengedwa ndi president?? U must have a very tiny brain
