Corporal Robert Banya, a Malawi Defence Forces MDF soldier who brutally killed fellow soldiers at Tsangano yesterday, has been shot dead by MDF soldiers at Mphate in Ntcheu last night.
Banya was seen around the Boma moving around with the pistol in his hand. As MDF soldiers approached him, he fired some bullets at them, and in retaliation, he was shot in the back of the head twice, his chest three times and two times in the stomach. He died on the spot.
His body was then taken to the Ntcheu District Hospital mortuary.
The operation was conducted by special team of MDF soldiers along with police detectives. At the time of his killing, Banya had a pistol with 13 rounds of live ammunition hid.
The deceased yesterday killed his fellow soldiers, Corporal Keston Mtambo and Corporal Gift Magombo, for preventing him from roughing his ex girlfriend.
