Luanar professor Mumba post-mortem reveals he was poisoned

Postmortem on the cause of death of Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) lecturer, Professor Peter Mumba reveals that his death was not  not of natural cause but of acute poisoning from a chemical compound.

Mumba: Poisoned

The postmortem, done by renowned pathologists, Prof. Ndalama George Liomba  and Dr Charles Dzamalala at Chidikalala village, T.A. Mtwalo in Mzimba District reveals the man died of an unnatural cause.

“The nature and type of this toxic chemical compound is yet to be named; this awaits further qualitative and quantitative toxicological analyses,” says the postmortem report.

“This cannot be done locally; hence the importance of submitting the second set of samples to an outside toxicology laboratory.

“No obvious natural causes of death were established. Foul play cannot be excluded.“

In its summary, the postmortem report says Francis Mumba, the deceased’s younger brother, and the technician at the mortuary where  the body of the deceased was embalmed reported that on the night of 24 April 2020, at about midnight, Mumba was called by the wife of the deceased informed him that his brother was unconscious and was going to be taken to hospital at St. John Hospital in Mitundu.

“A similar message came a little later from his sister. The wife reported that the deceased had come home from work around 6pm.

“He exchanged vehicles and went out. He returned home around 8 pm. He had dinner and then went to sleep sometime between of the 9.30 and 10 pm.”

The report further says a couple of hours later the wife said she heard a groaning voice from the bedroom where she found her husband complaining of feeling weak, who then fainted and became unconscious.

She is reported to have called the Bunda College doctor to see the patient, who took him to St John hospital and later to Partners in Hope Hospital.

“Here the attending doctor informed the relatives (Francis, his elder brother and sister in-law) that the patient was brought in already dead {Dead on Arrival}.

“This was after midnight, making the official date of death as 25 April, 2020. The body of the deceased was taken to Bwenzi Funeral Home where the wife asked for the body to be embalmed.

“The mortuary technician reminded the wife and the other people of the need for a post-mortem before embalming. This, it was reported, was ignored.”

The report further says the body was taken to his home village in Mzimba for burial on 26 April, 2020 and to the surprise of members of Mumba’s family, his wife left for Lilongwe the same afternoon after her husband’s burial.

“Circulating rumours indicated she rushed back to dismiss a house maid, who was reporting that Professor Mumba had been fed a poison in his food.

“This information was relayed to his first wife and children in the United Kingdom [and] asked for exhumation of the body and a post-mortem to determine the cause of death.”

With regard to past medical history, the postmortem report says the relatives knew only about gout and their was no mention of high blood pressure or diabetes mellitus as well as no history of heart disease.

On the report’s general comment, the post-mortem examination was done at the burial site after the body had been exhumed and that, at least, 30-40 people witnessed the examination, including family members, the local chief and his village headmen and three police officers from Mzuzu Police station.

“The emphasis was to establish the cause of death and in particular to collect specimens to exclude foul play as claimed in the above history.

“At the time of exhumation, the casket in which late Professor Mumba was buried was intact.”

On internal examination findings, the report says they looked at all internal organs as located in the chest, abdomen and cranial cavities and all organs, except the brain showed evidence of embalming.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Police in Lilongwe have arrested the wife, Anne Banda on suspected food poisoning and charged with murder.

It is further reported that before his death, Professor Mumba was processing his over K100 million pension money.

The problem is Patricia Kaliati who prepares draconian laws which victimise men and then she sends women to kill their husbands so that they can inherit their wealth through backdoor. That’s how satanic these women are.

This is a lesson to men. Most of men are driven to untimely death due to women. The first reason is that as soon as men find a little extra money, the first project they embark on is having a girl friend or simply womanizing.Secondly, they either divorce their first wife and cling to the new found love who does not know what the man has had to go through to get the money they currently have.

Stay away from these women if you want to live long. Stick to your first wife even if there could be issues.

Very sad about the loss or Professor Mumba. I just hope our polic will go to the bottom of this wicked woman.
A) why did she lie that he was suffering from medical conditions which were false.
B) why rushing back to Lilongwe to hide some evidence and fire the maid.
C) I hope she has not bribed the maid
C) was this woman working or full time house wife
E) How old is this woman.
F) Did she have children with Professor Mumba.
I do have hope that our police will get to the bottom of the case

RIP.. However is there tangible evidence tying the wife to the crime?. Is this just because she was the only one in the house? Were there other people in the house?. At what point could the poison have been consumed? At 7 o’clock when he was away or after 8 during dinner. Are there other people of interest?.

If you have done forensic you will understand that the number 1 reason spouses are murdered by their spouses is there life policies and their pension money, where they know that they are the beneficiaries.

If what ever written is true, including her behavior she will definitely be the number 1 suspect and she does have a case to answer.

The woman has a case to answer. How can a believed woman leave the funeral home of her own husband the same day of burial? What could be more important than mourning her departed husband. There is something fishy with her. She needs cross examination. She is apparently wicked.

I said tangible evidence and not your opinion or what you have been watching on crime and investigation. the policy is a motive but I’m talking about evidence on the ground.

When bringing the argument you should first think.I hope have read the story where it says the wife did not want the post-mortem hence she rushed to embalm the body.In the first place why the wife did not allow the postmortem process?Why she rushed to embalm the body etc.That answers your argument.

Very sad to note the death Professor Mumba. My grandmother mother was also Mumba and she came from Mzimba Kafukule. If this woman was the second wife then we have a real problem. Money is evil.
Can we have more information.
How long was he married to this woman?
Did he have children with her?

Excellent investigative questions. Marriage was through backdoor, no children and it must be less than 10 years of marriage…everything seems was happening in a rush
