It is said you can run but you cannot hide, thats what has happened to a murderer in Kasungu who has been arrested after killing two people.
Police in Kasungu have arrested a murder suspect, Kasiteni Mwale, 36 who was on run after murdering his wife before hacking the deceased grandmother, Malita Kapatamoyo aged 68. Mwale committed the offences during the night of 20-21 August 2016.
According to the police report from Kasungu Police Station made available to this publication, it states that the grandmother who was battling for her life at Kamuzu Central Hospital after being reffered from Ntchisi District Hospital, has also died.
“We arrested Mwale on Monday, 22 August, 2016 in Nkhotakota where he had fled after well wishers tipped the police. It is sad to say that the deceased grandmother too has passed on while receiving treatment at Kamuzu Central Hospital”, said Kasungu Police Publist Edna Mzingwitsa.
The alleged rumour has it that Mwale killed his wife after she had rejected his demand of offering their child for rituals to get rich. After hacking his wife to death, Mwale also hacked the deceased grandmother in attempt to conceal evidence. The deceased grandmother was referred to Kamuzu Central Hospital where she was admitted until on 22 August,2016 when she breathed her last soul.
Mwale is answering charges of Murder and will appear before court soon when investigations are completed.
Kasiteni Mwale comes from Shimwaza village in the area of Traditional Authority Chilowamatambe in Kasungu district.
