Karonga Police Spokesperson, George Mlewa said on Friday, that the incident happened when the suspect’s wife, was found with Munthali (the deceased) on the night of 26 December, 2018.

“We are told that Mwafongo had been suspecting his wife to be in love with the deceased for a period of time.

“He then found the two outside his house during the said night which angered him to the extent that he assaulted Munthali to death,” said Mlewa.

Mlewa said postmortem revealed that death was caused by traumatic wounds.

If it were me I could have done the same thing I can a sure you this case will be reduced to manslaughter. Stop bringing regionalism into this matter how can somebody in his right senses pick up his courage and ready to commit udultery with somebody’ s wife at his backyard ?Thats crazy and the owner of the wife took action, come on guys at least he had to do something he defended what belongs to him. If a man can’t protect his property he is a weak man, thumb up man you did the right thing had it… Read more »

The solution in this case would have been divorce not killing. What have you benefited? Imagine from today the wife will no longer be yours since you will be serving jail…

Elias, would you say the same thing if it was a woman who found her husband cheating? Mostly, azimayi amadekha amuna akamanyenga. But women have the right, like men, to have extra-marital sexual relationships. Men DON’T own their wives. The only way these incidents can be prevented is if both men and women respect marriage and are NOT promiscuous. Otherwise, payerepayere basi! If we don’t want cheating, then it should be for both men and women. Zisamakomere mbuzi kuzunza galu.

Awatu maganizidwe ofoila: women have the right, like men, to have extra-marital sexual relationships. Is it a right? Where is it enshrined? This is all thengere logic.

People, please stop the thengere logic of taking away lives because of thengerically unfaithful spouses. Use contact and dialogue to deal with the matters.

Wives don’t kill lovers of their husbands. Why is it that men are SO jealous and cruel when they suspect their wives. Women suffer with zibwenzi by their husbands but we never hear they have gone and killed chibwenzi. How many deaths would we have seen if women or wives did this? Kudzikonda and nkhanza azibambo. Let this stupid man rote in jail!
