  1. I remember some few years ago some 2 men from Kapichi in Nthyolo were also arrested for murdering Mr Kang’ombe who was the Boardgurd of Dr Bakili Muluzi, the former President, but we never saw the out come of their case up to now. I think we should allow the law of equality to punish these murders, nose to nose, ears to ears, eyes to eyes and same as wound for a wound, they is saving of life in the law of equality!

  3. I dont know how some people think… my free advice to you is….Read the story before you comment…..The suspect is Mike Banda from T/A kapichi in Thyolo district,while the deceased is Precious Mwale from T/A Wimbe in Kasungu….So there’s no way you can say that people from north are involved,…the accused is from south…not from the northern region…let’s be patriotic my fellow Malawians.

Very bad. now why are u people busy demonising KUMPOTO because of this as if mmadela mwinamu zoipa sizinachitikepo?. kumwela anthu aphedwa phedwa achosedwa chosedwa maso since time immemorial, pakati apa kukhapana nde sinkhani kudulana manja sivuto. All these are very bad things done by crazy brainless idiots so please lets avoid these unnecessary comments we are all one. Lets sober up and look at this as reasonable people.
