MAN BURN HOUSES OVER LOST HAT CONTAINING BUSINESS CHARMS

A 30-year-old man has been arrested by police in Ntchisi for setting ablaze two houses over a hat (Chipewa).

Ntchisi police spokesperson Yohane Tasowana has identified the suspect as Killian Mkokha.

According to Tasowana, the incident took place at Kalikuni 2 village in the district.

“A certain boy put on a hat similar to his. Thereafter the suspect asked the boy to give him his hat arguing that it belonged to him and that it contained some charms for business but the boy refused to do so saying he had bought it on his own,” said Tasowana.

Following that, Mkokha reacted angrily and set ablaze two houses belonging to the boy’s parents.

He managed to destroy properties worth K500, 000.00.

He’s currently in custody of police in Ntchisi.
