On Saturday in Dowa, an angry mob killed a suspected cattle rustler, a second such incident in two months in that district alone.
The latest incident took place in Mitembo village in the area of Traditional Authority Mkukula in the district. 
 
Dowa police spokesperson, Sub-inspector Gladson M'bumpha, told Zodiak Online Sunday that an unknown caller tipped police about alleging that people of Chikunda village were assaulting a suspected cattle rustler at Mitembo village along the Dowa- Dzaleka road. 
 
Police rushed to the scene where they found the suspect lying dead in the middle of the road with wounds in the stomach. 
 
"He was in a pool of his own blood," he said. 
 
The body now lays in the morgue at Dowa district hospital pending postmortem and identification as police investigations into his killers begin.
