Murder suspect kills prison guard’s son

70

A 19-year-old man who was remanded to Chirwa Approved Reformatory Centre in Zomba for murder is expected to answer another murder charge after killing a 7-year-old son of a security guard at the institution.

The body of the child Victor Sadick who was a Standard 2 pupil was found with the head nearly decapitated and private parts cut off.

Eastern region police spokesperson Joseph Sauka has identified the suspect as Blessings Mbavi who was in 2015 arrested on accusations that he killed a person and was sent to Chirwa Approved Reformatory Centre awaiting trial.

According to Sauka, while at the centre the suspect used to chat with the father to the child Moses Sadick, 33, who works at the institution as a security guard.

“Due to their friendship, the suspect could visit the Sadick residence and at times he was asked to assist them do some piece work which he was paid for.

Their friendship also brought the suspect close to the family members and he was going to the house to chat with the kids even in absence of the parents,” Sauka told Malawi24.

On 6th of this month the killer was seen chatting with the child who was alone at home after his parents had gone out.

Upon arriving home, the parents were surprised not to find their child home and after asking the
neighbours, they revealed to have last seen the child with the suspect.

When he was quizzed, Mbavi admitted killing the child at a nearby bush.

A search was conducted and the dead body was found in the nearby bush with the head almost chopped off and private parts removed.

Postmortem conducted at Zomba Central Hospital revealed that death was due to loss of blood which emanated from the cut wounds.

Meanwhile, the suspect is in custody and is expected to appear before court upon completion of the investigations where he will answer a case of murder which is contrary to section 209 of the Penal code.

The victim came from Staubi village in the area of Traditional Authority Kumtumanji in Zomba district while Mbavi hails from Nkhongo village, Traditional Authority Kanyenda in Nkhotakota district.

  1. Very pathetic indeed, I taught this boy when I was working at the reformatory centre 2 years ago and I thought he has changed. But it seems these guys are not being reformed but rather deformed. Government should closely monitor the centre as there are a lot of problems to be addressed

  4. At 19 he has already killed two persons. This boy is a danger to society and dont think he deserves to continue living on tax payers money.

    • Reformetery center is a place where children below the age of 18 are place.This place is not like the Maula prison you know and I hope by the time he commited the crime he was below that age.

    • mr mdoka, the institution is like the way any xul appears. staff houses are also allocated there which gives chance 4 the 2 parties to enteract. and i hope it is during this enteraction that the offence was made.

    • Ili ngati school ya boarding, Siili ngati prison. Choncho awawa osungidwawa amakhala ku hostel osati ku cell. Kulibe mpanda ngati momwe kuliri ku prison. Amakhala ndi mwayi onse otuluka ndikubweranso. Amacheza ndi anthu mmene angathere. Maufulu awo ndiosayamba. Ndikhulupilira kuti mwamva

  6. You people,, I mean God fearing people, the Bible / Qur’an teaches us “wakupha mzake aphedwe ” ndiye inu mukuweta mkango pakati panu in the name of “maufulu ” tiyeni nazo mutha nonse

    • The Bible does not teach us kuti okupha nzake aphedwe,but it teaches us kuti tisaphe!
      Maybe the Quran does but not the Bible….dont twist the word of God please

    • Ndipo izoo ndi zoona wakupha mzake aphedwe pakuti mwadzi wake akuulipilira iye mwini Koma kumangosekelera aaaa ambiri azifa……….ndiye yense wakuti azaphedwe mmm iye zizaphweteka atamuphera m’bale wake

    • If it is like that ndiye tidzingoona mwazi daily tu.wakupha akaphedwa wakuphayoso akuyenera kuphedwaso ameneyoso aphedwe waphayoso ndiye ikhala routine mpaka onse psyitiiiiiii. Malamulo akuyenera kugwira ntchito moyenerela komaso munthawi yake zisanaonongeke kwsmbiri. Thus too bad for the murderer.
