Blessings Nyondo, a student of The Polytechnic who was shot by a security guard on the night of 31 December 2020 near Kwacha roundabout, has died.
His father, Getson Nyondo, has confirmed of the development.
On 4 January, Malawi Police Service released a statement saying that the younger Nyondo was a suspect in a robbery that happened on New Year’s Eve, pointing out that he was shot by a Malawi Broadcasting Corporation security guard at Njamba in Blantyre after a scuffle with the guard and a Police Mobile Service officer.
However, the family insisted that the deceased was on his way to a religious crossover service but was shot using a pump gun with pellet bullets for being mistaken as a mugger.
