POLICE ‘ACCIDENTLY’ SHOOT A MAN IN MZUZU

Malawi police services (MPS) officer on Wednesday accidentally shot a 38 year old man in the Northern city of Mzuzu.

Northern Region Police Spokesperson Maurice Chapola confirmed the development and identified the man as James Phiri.

Phiri, looked in indescribable pain during an exclusive interview with FaceofMalawi said he was “afraid the same thing is going to happen again.”

He said he was walking on the street – in the central business district – when he heard a gunshot.

“I didn’t know what was happening until I felt pain all over my body and saw blood gushing out. I shouted for help,” narrated Phiri.

Eye witnesses told FaceofMalawi that two police officers on patrol had been toying with a rifle when, as they handed the rifle over to each other, the gun was accidentally fired.

A medical report by Mzuzu Central Hospital confirms Phiri was “accidentally”shot

He was treated for severe bleeding on Wednesday and Thursday, and is expected to report to the hospital again on Friday (today) for an operation to remove the bullet.
