It is believed that upon arrival at the deceased’s residence, M’dala asked for a glass of water but the unsuspecting ex-girlfriend handed over the glass of water, the suspect fished out a knife and stabbed her on the stomach and fore-arm and immediately left the place.

She was rushed to Kamuzu Central Hospital where she is said to have been pronounced dead upon arrival.

Murder in Mulanje 

In a related development, Police in Mulanje have arrested a 64-year-old man for allegedly murdering his wife.

The suspect, identified as Chitekwe Moffat, from Muhowa village in the area of Senior Chief Nkanda, committed the offence last Saturday.

According to Gresham Ngwira, publicist for Mulanje Police, the suspect, Chitekwe Moffart, went for a drinking spree in the area and went home at around 1900hrs very drunk.

“When he arrived at the house, he started calling for the wife who was sleeping. Knowing the husband’s behaviour when drunk, the wife, Ireen Zuwedi, did not respond.

“Later the husband entered in the house and started beating the deceased severely,” explained Ngwira.

He said she was taken to Nkando Health Center where health officials pronounced her dead.

“Postmortem results indicate that death was due to ruptured spleen. He will answer an offence of murder that contravenes section 209 of the Penal Code,” added Ngwira.

The deceased also hailed from Muhowa village.

i think this has nothing to do with national security…… i would call these end of the time events, we now living in times whereby man is failing to take the right decision when it comes to the issue of life and death.. this is justthe alpha of all this.. but the omega will be of a startling nature
… i would appreciate the Malawi police for the good job they have just done by apprehending this killer……
