A Democratic Progressive Party politician in Mulanje was tortured to death by Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers who are protecting Mulanje Mountain.

The DPP youth leader from Chibade in Limbuli area in Mulanje Alick Kambewa died last week and legislator for the area Daudi Chida said he was killed by soldiers.

Mulanje MTAccording to local media, Chida told mourners that the soldiers tortured 31-year-old Kambewa after finding him with timber sourced from Mulanje Mountain.

According to Chida, Kambewa refused to hand over the planks of timber to the soldiers who then tortured him to death.

“He had planks and when the soldiers ordered him to surrender them, he refused because he argued they did not belong to him, this is when the beating and torture started,” he said.

On their part, the soldiers claimed that Kambewa was killed by a speeding vehicle.
However, villagers said marks on Kambewa’s body are evidence that he was tortured to death.

Kambewa is survived by a wife and three children.

According to reports, Kambewa is the second person to be killed by soldiers in the past two months.

  4. Oh politicians when will learn nothing is permanent on this earth. Tides changes with time no matter how long it takes the opposition will come to power and u will see how miserable life would be for you. Stop doing evil and when out of power u would have nothing to fear. The evil I are doing now will surely come after u

  5. To avoid such incidents, the govt must replant trees all over our hills,valleys and mountains even plains. That will increase the vegetative cover and reduce the consumption of the so called trees. Besides that improve on many other areas and create a lot of jobs

  10. In Villages like Kalozwa, Sagawa…they threatened innocent citizens to an extent of abandoning their homes to the hiding place to mountains. Those unfortunate were forced to load the TATA with planks. It was sweating task. Those that refused were beaten mercilessly. The lone houses were brocked in search for the valuable planks. In case of Kambewa, the planks were not his, bt the problem was his refusal to work the timber into the vehicle. My plea to MDF soldiers, mumatiimirira. But find legal punishments to the victims. The freedom is meant for every Malawian. Sob Sob sob Rest In Eternal Peace Kambewa.

  19. Why are soldiers ruthless and heartless? The life they have taken away was more precious than Cinderella, bluegums, pine, m’bawa…you name it. Sometimes soldiers aren’t friendly as to compare with police officers. Even the time they invaded Dzalanyama forest people suffered a lot. Those who were found with indigenous timber were brutally harassed. Charcoal burners down Khwekhwerere, in Dedza faced same harassment. Early this year soldiers invaded Bembeke market and went away with several bags of charcoal and the owners were taken on board to appear before the court of laws. Sometimes people themselves provoke the situations deliberately. Some other things can be avoided. But soldiers need to protect lives of people as well.

  20. Kumenyedwa ndi Asilikali depends ndi mwano omwe unawachitira. I like our Soldiers. Ndi anthu odzichepetsa kwambiri, odziwa bwino ntchito yawo and olimbikira. Don’t provoke them bcoz of our Political Party relationship

  23. Be professional just say ppo from Mulanje have been tortured by the MDF. Don’t politicise everything would u say mcp members if this happen in lilongwe?

  24. Life of a human being is more important than trees. If it is true, ndibwino kuika lamulo loti odula mitengo azizengedwa mlandu than kuphedwa.

    MDF ikanamatelo kwa anthu okuba ndi mfutiwa bwezi Malawi ilibho.

    We can replace trees by planting them but life cannot be restored

  25. Inu amene mukutsutsa za nkhani iyi chonde inuyo tayankhulani zoona coz tonse sizingatheke kukhala malo amodzi kut tionele limodzi. So you better wtite the difference than kunyoza munthu you know some by now are in North some in Central even here in South too koma sitimamva kapena kuona zofanana ok?
