Malawi Revenue Authority employee shoots himself dead over marital issues

A 39 year-old man from Kameza village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Machinjiri on Tuesday committed suicide by shooting himself with pump gun at his house in Chigumula, Blantyre.

Namba

Namba

Limbe Police identified the deceased as Lumbani Namba, who was working with the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA).

He left a suicide note of which the law enforcers declined to detail its contents.

But sources told Nyasa Times that he had been quarrelling with his wife over marital issues for the past two weeks.

“He was one of the senior officers at the Domestic Tax section. It’s not true that he was being investigated at MRA. But his neighbours told us that he has been quarrelling with his wife and other relations over marital problems and could quarrel up to midnight.

“It’s unfortunate that people are saying this and that. He is gone and nobody can provide answers or explain why he committed suicide other than himself; so people will continue speculating,” said one of the sources, also working with MRA.

It was earlier speculated that he started quarrelling with the wife following revelation that he was not the biological father of the three children he was made to believe were his when was reportedly impotent.

Namba will be laid to rest on Wednesday, December 9 2015 at Kameza.

    I feel for the wife. imagine this was your sister, daughter, mum or even you! your partner suddenly commits suicide!
    I can’t start to imagine the pain she is going through and has to bear for a very long time to come . the least people could do is stop kicking her when she is already down
    I also feel for the man. what a life lost! what a resource wasted! and how sad to think that whatever he was experiencing was so unbearable that he resorted to taking his own life.
    After all is said and done, God only understands and is a better Judge! MHSRIP!

  2. Tangupenya says:

    He is gone and no piece of advice can be useful to him now . But those of us who are going through various problems in our families, must realize that there are better ways of resolving them other than taking away our own lives as that action creates even more problems. what do you think your children will think about you? As a loving father after terminating your life when they need your support most? surely NO.

    Man, why killing yourself? Women nowadays do not respect marriage. They are alwez after money Look now, whatever you have left will be hers and your brothers, sisters and parents will have nothing but tears for you. she will be bonked right on your marital bed with other guys. Why didn’t you just leave the home for another woman??? Akazi onsewa akusowa amunawa??? Did she have a vagina where you were extracting minerals? Crude oil? I fail to understand……

  7. yabwanya says:

    the issue here is that Lumbani was twice found at chez with prostitutes and the wife was told about it , hence the quarrel otherwise the wife is not at fault here,this man was womanizing all over town, do you think the wife had no reason to confront the Husband on such issues?

THE TRUTH HEREIN IS THE MRA CASHGATE AND MANY EMPLOYEES KNEW HOW NAMBA ENJOYED OR PLAYED WITH MONEY HERE WHICH TO HIM WAS ANOTHER SIDE OF STATIONARY AND SLEPT WITH ALMOST THREE QUARTERS OF MRA WOMEN.I AM SORRY THAT I HEAR HE LEFT A LETTER IMPLICATING THE FAMILY MATTERS AND THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE. THE CASE THEREFORE IS NOW AT A REST.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    If we appreciate that we have the power to choose some things like our career, friends, e.t.c should we fail to appreciate there are other things we have no power or control over hence cant choose?; like the family were are born into, the short or strong memory or being born impotent e.t.c?
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Ofcourse others may argue that the pain inflicted on him was too much to handle but why do we fail to realise the power of time? Does not sorrow fly on the wings of time? Does not time heal a broken heart? How many of us have lost so much, have been cheated on n lied to but managed to rise up n move on; not because we are strong but because the clock didn’t stop ticking hence time kept passing? Is not the past faster forgotten than remembered if the present is better? He could have started afresh! Would have been possible!
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    No matter how holy they look or how angelic they carry themselves, it helps to start marriage on the assumption that your woman/man can cheat but find that luckily the woman or man you have married is not one of them; than to start it denying that your woman/man can cheat n surprise yourself.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    I know this may strike fools as foolish and wise men as wise but cheating or the inclination to cheat is a natural thing in people. People need variety just as they need variety of food, clothing, e.t.c. And if men n women were given a chance to choose more women/men to one; they would choose more. Its only the laws of gods n men n power of the pocket n speech n consequences that prevent us from doing this. Otherwise, we naturally prefer more of anything that’s good to less of it.

    Life is just too precious to just be given away like that. What a way to die! Too bad.

    Its very unfortunate that it has happened this way. However, the husband would just divorce the woman and lead his life. Commiting suicide was a wrong option

  46. Cashgate1 says:

    So sorry Lumbani, It is stressful and painful to be cheated by your spouse. Worse still having children outside your marriage. May be the widow would now be free to continue her business as usual, if what has been said by some people is true about her. This applies both ways (man or woman)

  47. mogasa chairman says:

    society has no sorrow for weaklings. if it was me, i would have jumped for joy to be finally rid of the vampire and her offspring. i would have lived the boss life, parties every week, trips to the lake every monthend, wall to wall hookers….

    you were home free you idiot. no more school fees, uniforms, budgeting for 5 etc. now you’re doing taxes in hell. what a waste.

  48. redeemed says:

    How cowardice, opting the easy way out. That is why I am never fond of pampered doll men. They are just way too weak to withstand even the simplest challenges life throws at them.

  49. KAMTEDZA says:

    Dear Beloved Married Men and Women,

    I cant comment on the deceased or his family. However let me take advantage of this to plead with you brothers and sisters to take your marriage problems to the Lord. There are many since marriage counselors in Malawi who help couples out of the fear God. I am talking about genuine servants of God and not the many tricksters. Take your marriage problems to the Lord. Christ can solve any problem in marriage. Christ who reconciled the world which had antagonized itself against Him through sin can solve any irreconcileable problem. What is impossible with people is possible with God. Please chonde abale anga a Malawi wokondedwa mvereni pempho langa. God bless you all.

    His wife is Mphatso Nowa who works for Save the Children. Ndi Hule even kuno amangodyetsa katundu bola munthu akhale ndi cash. It is her tendancy since she was working ku Story Workshop.
    Her relatives are useless because they are birds of the same feathers. Ndi kamtundu kamene kama Hule. Lero ndi izi waphetsa munthu.
    People before you speculate mudzifufuza kaye bhobho. Mphatso samakana amuna ndi palowa ina. Even banja la Ada aziwomberawo kuti lid zitha she was the one at the centre. She believes in kulanda mabanja a eni.
    Tikakumana kumanda komweko.

  51. shad says:

    Can i ask the woman who is the biological father of his 3 children

  52. nalimata says:

    Story goes that this late handsome guy’s wife, one Mphatso ( nee Nowa), was having an illicit relationship with her boss at UNICEF with whom she had two children, one 4 and the other 1. She lied to her husband that the children were his until it all came out. The gentleman could not handle this and decided to end his life. What a waste…

  53. Bingu says:

    I believe there are better options to react to family issues than taking one’s own life. The act in this story demonstrates weak leadership or lack of emotional control. Most importantly, absence of Jesus Christ as a driver of one’s life.

  54. Mc Phodo says:

    Family members are experiencing different challenges days. Quarreling over night. Then shooting himself. A lot to be investigated from this issue. Not only impotent issue. Impotent and fertility are two different issues. One can be impotent but fertile, but having children. Even anybody who has biological many children can suffer from impotent. Thus when gondolosi, soaked rice and uncooked cassava comes in.In fact impotent means a man experiencing weak penile erection.Weak penile erections can be caused by stress, poor diet, poor preparation for sick, sickness, taking strong drugs among other medical causes.Every man suffers from impotent in life. My opinion is that this man might be killed by the wife. These days family members are facing numerous problems and quarrels are part of the problems.When it comes to committing suicide in family due to family problems then men are the victims.
