20 year old Cop killer sent to prison


A 20-year-old man who is being accused of murdering a police officer in Nkhotakota has been sent on remand.

The man, identified as Chrisone Mlauzi, appeared before court last week when he was formally charged with an offence of murder under section 209 of the penal code.

Mlauzi killed a police officer on 17th June, 2017 at Ngala Trading Centre bus stage, in the area of Traditional Authority Kanyenda in Nkhotakota.

The officer Rodgers Kasitomu was travelling from Nkhunga Police Station to take up his post at Ngala Full Primary School where he was assigned to provide security at a centre for the National Registration Identification exercise.

Upon disembarking from public transport at Ngala bus stage, the officer was unexpectedly attacked by the man who seriously hacked him in the head with a sharp metal object.

Following the incident, the officer sustained three deep cuts in the head and was rushed to a nearby health centre (Ngala Health Centre) by well-wishers where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Police said the case is expected to be tried by the High Court which has jurisdiction over all murder cases in the country.

Meanwhile, police at Nkhunga Police Station have since recorded witness statements and charged the culprit with murder which he has voluntarily admitted.

Mlauzi who is suspected to be mentally ill is expected to be taken to a psychologist for mental examination.

He hails from Rubeni village in the area of Traditional Authority Kanyenda in Nkhotakota district.
