Malikebu, according to Phalombe police, was, on Tuesday (December 1st), suspected to have conspired with another man only identified as Mankhanamba to kill her boyfriend, Overton Poison, 28, whose body was found, two days later, buried behind her house.

“On this day, the first deceased (Poison) went to visit the second deceased (Malikebu) at her house where he met another man (Mankhanamba) who was also in a relationship with her,” Phalombe police Publicist, Augustus Nkhwazi told Nyasa Times.

Nkhwazi added: “It is not yet known what happened, but the two (second deceased and Mankhanamba) are alleged to have killed the first deceased”.

Poison was reported missing on December 1st in Maliro village in the district. His body was, however, found buried behind Malikebu’s house in a decomposed state on Thursday.

“This did not go down well with relatives of the first deceased who later on attacked her. They demolished her house, set it on fire and threw her into the hellhole and watched her struggle to death,” explained Nkhwazi.

The episode was reported to Phalombe police who rushed to the scene of the incident only to find Malikebu burnt to ashes and Poison’s body half buried and in decomposed state behind the burnt house.

Nkhwazi said they have since instituted investigations into the matter, while Mankhanamba is currently at large.

According to the law enforcers, Malikebu who hailed from Maliro village, T/A Jenala in the district, was also a murder suspect on a High Court bail for an offence that occurred in 2012.

Poison hailed from Mwango village T/A Jenala in the district.

  12. Bwande says:

    And when the this Mankhanamba guy is apprehended, the same police will give him bail after receiving some K3,000. And he will kill again. In this case, it is the same police who gave bail to a murder suspect, Malikebu and she killed again. Thanks to mob justice. She will never kill again. She got her one way ticket to hell

  13. jeb says:

    Shameless Malawi Police. You think by disclosing that the second deceased was on bail for a murder case dating back 3 years then you are showing that she was murderer..noooo. .rather, you are showing us that ur inefficiency cost the country an innocent life..damn you

    the problem with southern girls is that ndi okoma too much. akupangitsa amuna osalakwa kuti aziphana, aziba m’ma bank ndi m’ma company etc etc just because of their offals.

    we should just ban chinamwali because that’s where they learn their amazing sex skills. i know what i’m talking about because i once blew my salary in one night on a girl at zithere pano. job imene anayigwira pa ine sindimvetsabe mpakana lero……kaya alipo kaya?

  30. Green Grass says:

    The whole event sounds terrible but on the other hand it puts to question the whole idea of giving bail to murder suspects. Here Mankhanamba has committed another murder.
