Dowa police spokesperson, Richard Kaponda has confirmed the death of a  75-year-old Masiye Maritchi who has lost his life after he was hit by a goat meat seller following a quarrel.

Reports say that on Sunday, the meat seller, Tsanzo Mbewu took his business to a local bar in Mtande village in Dowa.

It was when the deceased came and bought meat and he asked the seller to keep it for him saying he will be back to get it some other time.
