    You do realize the cartoon used is of a female slave being bitten right or are you this dumb to use such a cartoon on a suicide story? You represent Malawi and this is pure ignorance.

    I am also struggling to align the picture shown here to the article.
    Anyway I must commend the writer of the story for sparing us the trama emanating from viewing sensitive scenes.
    I am baffled to here that at this day and age still there are men whom upon quarreled with their spouses, they resort to confiscating the stuff they bought for them. How backwards. If my husband was to dare to do such a thing, I would never ever accept any of his gifts even after reconciliation.
    I also do not see a point in resorting to suicide due to any form of misunderstanding whether it be family or professional. I mean who once died and came back to report about life on the other side?. Imagine the deceased has wasted her precious life for a man who will soon move on with his life, while his friends and more especially her kids will continue to grieve over her loss.
    My fellow Malawians let’s not devalue the gift of life for petty issues.

    The sketch you’re showing here is from slavery days; showing how white slave owners treated “rebellious” slaves. It’s a very offensive sketch.

    Poverty is a mess and a root cause of such cases

  18. It is sad that some of us do not love & respect our spouses, however, in such sittuations we should not resort to ending our lives!

  19. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    The sketch accompanying the story is despicable; clearly showing passersby or spectators in a jovial mood. What is the point here?
    And lack of imagination is obvious here too: Since when does one hang oneself, and end up with wrists tied together, while the body is hanging like that? The sketch looks to me like a lynching! Which we have not heard of in this country, for a very long time.
