Supporter killed in football fracas


A 25-year-old man identified as Boaz Mwesumo died on Wednesday after a fracas erupted during a football match in Karonga.

The game between Kakoma football club and Chicago football club was part of a Salvation Army Bonanza.

The two teams met on Wednesday at Kiwe ground which is in the northern side of Karonga district.

Chicago football club was leading by two goals to nil which made the supporters for the winning team to be overexcited. The excitement did not please the opponents and they started fighting.

In an interview with Malawi24, Karonga police deputy spokesperson George Mulewa said that in the process of fighting a stone was released from the side of Chicago supporters which landed on the head of Kakoma supporter Boaz.

He was taken to Kiwe health centre where his death was pronounced upon arrival.

Postmortem revealed that the death was due to severe head injuries.

Police in the district have warned those taking the law into their hands that the law will not spare any criminal as investigations on the matter are underway.

Boaz Mwesumo hailed from Charson village, Traditional Authority Kilupula in Karonga district.




  1. What Malawi need is a new way of forward thinking.. Malawi cannot sustain itself in all areas of the economy as a soverign state..It does not have the capacity to stand as an independent state..Malawi needs to give up sovereignty and marry itself to a powerful and strong National like China.. Malawi should cede it’s soverenity to China for the next 50 or 100 years ..this will be in the best interest for the present n future generations…if Malawi was a company it will need business is a bankrupt needs a merger or acquisition by a powerful n strong Nation like China…..China is looking for a leg to stand on in Africa..let’s team up with China if we want to see this Nation transform in our lifetime… otherwise there no hope for the future..the future of this national is dark ….We need a referendum to surrender this Nation to China..Let’s accept it we do not have the capacity either mentally nor financially ..our altitude as a nation is not positioned to transform the Nation…We need realistic new thinking…We we’re under British protectorate by force,then nyasaland by force then federation of Rhodesia n nyasaland by force,then we became Malawi by force, dictatorship by force,multiparty democracy by force …not its time to negotiate our new Nationality by free will…Let’s team up with China as a new republic of China in Africa….China is an undisputable powerful and developed force to get married to..let’s divorce ourself from this independence that has no future..we have debts that will still be paid by our unborn children’s grandchildren… Let’s be fair to ourselves n the future generation… We have failed as an independent Nation …its time to team up with big guns…

Football is the game of blood the president of football around the world is the devil.Others will say the BIBLE dint mentioned football as sin then,between football the BIBLE which one is much older than the other? The devil is playing many tricks to destroy the world.

    • It seems everything in this world is devilish hence people are dying left,right and center whether at the place of worship or play ground. Your knowledge of faith is misleading bro
