  8. Why arresting him for Killing an elephant? He must be very energetic and courageous, in the bible Samson killed a Lion who arrested him? This other boy called David also killed Goliath who arrested him? Instead all these guys were given a hand of applause and given special titles, so our man in Machinga must be given a gun and employed as a Game Ranger.
