Photos of the day: Maillon brothers lie slain as mother identifies them

Army personnel from the 3ZR infantry brigade have shot dead the three notorious Mailoni brothers in a joint security operation.

The bullet riddled bodies of the three brothers who have terrorised Luano valley are lying in Kabwe general hospital mortuary and were identified by their aging mother, Janet Njimu and their other brother, who both fled the area for fear of being killed by the killers.

The terrorists have caused havoc on the people of Luano valley who have been fearing to go and harvest their crops and have killed countless security personnel.

The operation was a full military operation which involved combat soldiers and some commandoes camping in the area to get information about the notorious trio.

 

Their mother confirmed her children practicing witchcraft to execute their terror that has lasted almost a decade, and some soldiers told the Watchdog that soon after opening fire the terrorists started getting wild.

“What led us to unleash a bloody death was when we first shot, something mysterious started happening, they started changing into something else like wild animals but we just got courage and shot continuously,” said a soldier who sought anonymity.

    From what I see, those were just charcoal burners. Looking at the kind of footware and given that no sort of weaponery was found on them, I am tempted to think that Army shot wrong people and DNA tests became imperative. If wrong people were shot the Zambian Government must be brought to task.

    Who knows real criminals could have been using the name of Mailoni brothers. The police intelligence and the soldiers must be in that area for the next few weeks to make sure that another serial killer does not emerge

    Much as I don’t support the Mailoni brothers’ actions, the authorities should not have subjected the mother to this traumatic experience of identifying her deceased sons.

      Why talk about their mother like that,she is so innocent and was a victim of theirs too,she was badly beaten by them before she ran away and Tunda wanted to have sex with her for charms,so please spare her,she described them as wild animals who deserved to die.

    Why kill? Jesus died for all of us, sinners. Jesus refused to allow those thugs to stone an adulterous woman. The right to life is absolute. God, forgive these soldiers. Spare them from your wrath. Spare their generations, too. True, these were criminals, according to reports, but you oh, lord shall come one day and judge.

    Bane why did they kill innocent people. I thought it was for money. But the tattered clothes prove that they were not rich at all but just plain simple mailons. Maybe we could try to dig around the area where they were shot we could just unearth another K2 billion under ground. Besides Bank of Zambia said about K3 trillion in old notes was still uncollected hope it was not being held by the Mailons

        Not completely true… the mother is there and truly alive. They could have used her DNA to prove the dead suspects are his.

        This is ridiculous by these guys to use a mother to identify her dead son. Why did they shoot to kill them, presumably they were not even armed. They are just suspects they should have been given an opportunity defend themselves and explain whatever it is they are accused of.

        By the way could someone school me… what crimes are they suspected to have committed? Who are they? I have just been hearing about the ‘Mailon brothers’ but no one says who they are or what they alleged to have been committed.

        Again the Z_W_D, please have discretion for your viewers and the respect for the dead, their families and your readers… please kindly stop showing corpses of dead people. Even in war zones like Iraqi or Afghanistan they never splash pictures like these discriminatory without any regard for the readers.

        • comment-avatar

          you are not serious my friend suppose the dead innocent lives were your family or your father or mother or better still your child will your words written carry wait.
          some things you don’t need courts such as these.human rights in these cases are useless.e.g Gaddafi and saddam

          Ba Maverick you want to sound different just because you are kubulaya lol. Please dont bring your tuma adopted western culture or thoughts to Zambia. If you dont know what these guys did, why are you going straight to condemn the acts of our men in uniform. Maybe try to investigate what these killers had done before trying to act like you are ‘Mr know it all’.
          Anyways, incase you didnt know, these guys were serial killers who had been on the loose for over a decade. They had killed and terrorised villagers around the Mkushi area. They also have killed law enforcement officers that where sent to arrest them. (so yes, the government did try to arrest them so that they could face justice in court like you wanted them to). These guys had their own mother run away from where she lived because they also wanted to kill her and her other family members. According to the records, they had killed more than 20 people. it could be more, we dont know. maybe some bodies have not just been discovered.
          Now with the brief background i have given you, please tell us what you think would have been the best solution to end this??? Even in the western world, if are a killer on the loose and have killed law enforcement officers, you can bet you are not seeing the inside of a court room, but am sure the next time you see a cop you will be facing his gun with a bullet in your head.

          They were notoriously responsible for gruesome murders committed in Luano valley that they continued to terrorize until they met their fate.

          These idiots are even wanted to kill their own mother.

    God Died for men like me and the Mailoni Brothers, My heart is grieved that perhaps they died without a chance to repent and realize Jesus Love for them. I command the spirit they operated under to be cut off this family and Nation In Jesus name, I cut off this spirit from their Children if they had any and from the remaining Brothers in Jesus name.

      While I don’t condon what those thugs were doing in Luano Valley, but I also think it was uncalled for, for the government to send an infantry Brigade, for what? I left Zambia some time ago and I stand to be corrected. Where is the mobile unit of the Zambian Police Service? where are the para military guys? The three guys should have been captured and brought to stand trial. I do not know whether the old lady was able to identify the bodies of her children. It was also inhuman to drag the old lady to that kind of scene. Zambia has just became a big uncivilized village gentlement. Look at this an Army sent to shoot those unarmed thugs, a waste of time.

    EAASY DOES IT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. i WOULD WANT TO ASK EACH ONE OF YOU HOW ELSE YOU WOULD HAVE HANDLED SUCH A CASE WHERE THESE CHAPS HAVE BEEN CAUSING HAVOC FOR THE WHOLE CETURY. i TAKE YOU BACK TO BIN LADEN’S CASE. SURELY THE AMERICANS WANTED TO CAPTURE HIM AND PUT HIM ON TRIAL, BUT THEY FAILED BECAUSE THE GENTLEMAN WAS VERY SLEEPERLY, THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE WAS TO KILL HIM THERE AND THEN. ANOTHER EXAMPLE IS SAVIMBI WHO WAS HIMSELF ADVANCED IN AFRICAN MAGIC AND WITHCRAFT, AND NOT FORGETING OUR OWN MUSHALA. LET US BE REALISTIC AND ONLY ASK LORD GOD JESUS TO FORGIVE US TO WHAT WE HAVE DONE TO SAVE THE HUMAN LIFE.
