Eastern Region Police confirmed the death of Crispin Botomani of Mkula village, Traditional Authority Mkula in eastern district of Machinga.

The body was discovered Monday morning. He hanged himself with a made rope from mosquito net and died of suffocation, according to Thomeck Nyaude, spokesperson for Eastern Region Police.

The deceased, who was staying with his wife at squatter township Chikanda in Zomba, hanged himself by the Mulunguzi River near Chancellor College. He left a four paged “suicide note” detailing issues that compelled him to commit suicide.

In the note, titled “Love Story” and addressed to “my in-law mum and father”, the deceased claimed to have started dating his “sweetheart” Melia in December 2012, but her parents never wanted their daughter to get married with man.

He explained that although they were staying together as a family, he never enjoyed the marriage and was always unhappy because of Melia’s parents, who wanted their daughter to marry a rich man.

The parents, according to the note, told their daughter to find another man and that he was not ideal for their daughter.

The parents in question also forcibly sent their daughter to Mangochi as one way of separating the two, but this did not work out as the daughter returned to Zomba and went straight to the deceased’s house without the blessings of her parents.

Ndadutsa m’mavuto ambiri ndi mwana wanuyo kamba ka chikondi koma in makolo simumandifuna kamba koti ndine wosauka………..moyo wanga watopa, sindikuwona kuwala kwa tsogolo langa, mundisamalire mkaziyo ndi mwana wanga Brezy,” reads part of the suicide note.

Murder suspect hunt

In another development, Police in Blantyre are hunting for unknown criminals believed to have killed 75 year-old Lawrence Kandulu on October 23 2015.

He was found dead in his house by some neighbors who went to check on him after staying hours without seeing him.

“When the broke the door, they find him dead with blood oozing  from the nose, but there no sign of any wound,” said Andrew Mayawo, Blantyre Police spokesperson.

Postmortem conducted at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital showed the deceased died of suffocation due to strangulation, he said, adding that suspects will face murder charges contrary to Section 209 of the Penal Code.
