Kondwani said on the fateful day Maxwell went to Mchacha village for his duties.

While in the course of duties as he was shifting from one village to another he decided to answer the call of nature at a near side bush.

In the process he wondered upon seeing that his body was shaking for no apparent reason and that he could hear wind like blowing from near side.

Suddenly a Python about 3 metres protruded and coiled his whole body leaving one arm up.

“Maxwell screamed for help and it was Edson Fegasi who rushed to the scene and grabbed the neck of the Python and it uncoiled itself and  they killed it” Kondwani said.

However the two reported the matter to Nsanje police. The police called game personnel for proper disposal of the dangerous animal.

Meanwhile Police in the district is therefore urging the general public to avoid answering call of the nature in the bush instead to ask the nearby home for help to prevent incidence of this nature.
