One man was arrested by police officers from Malava after he attacked and killed his father in his house. Police say the man tried to escape after the incident but was nabbed after villagers raised alarm shortly after ending his father's life.
His family says that the man, who is a drug addict, had attempted a similar incident where he wanted to kill his own mother but his attempts were thwarted after she screamed for help. The man was then arrested and later released before going for his father's life.
It is said that the 20-year-old Jacob Mulama entered his father's house, Patrick Muchumbalo who is commonly referred to as 'Computer' by locals, around 3 am. The man killed him in cold blood before attempting to run away.
His family says that the man is a threat to them and if released, he might cause more harm to his family members and other unsuspecting villagers.
Preliminary examinations revealed that the deceased had deep cuts on his head and body. He is being held in police custody as police continue investigating the tragic incident.
