The woman Linda Phulani was severely beaten by Yasini with chains and steel rods sustaining deep cuts on her buttocks and her back at Kumbuyo village, Tembwe in traditional authority (TA) Mlonyeni in the district.

A visit to Mchinji hospital by Malawi News Agency (MANA) found the woman crying in pain due to deep and shocking wounds on her body.

Hospital officials said Linda lost a lot of blood and will need blood transfusion and an operation on the wounds.

Linda could not talk to Mana but in a police statement seen by Mana, the victim said she was beaten by her husband when she went to see her friend in the same neighborhood without her husband’s consent.

The statement further states that since she got married in January this year, her husband did not allow her to visit friends and on Thursday, April 16th Linda went to visit a neighbour, when she came back the husband accused her of going out with other men and beat her with a chain and a steel rod.

Linda’s father Willy Phulani told Mana that the family has been receiving reports of his daughter’s troubled marriage and they sent relatives to check on her, but she assured them that she was fine.

“Our daughter eloped with the man without our consent and we have been hearing reports that she was in an abusive marriage,” he said.

The suspect Yasini who is in police custody at Mchinji Police told Mana that he has been hearing rumours about his wife’s infidelity and on Thursday he found his wife undressed at their home at Tembwe in T/A Mlonyeni and suspected she was with another man.

“I am a good person and have never committed any crime in my life I did not intend to harm my wife; it is the work of the devil. I wish her well, in fact am the one who took her to a local clinic in our area when I saw her injuries,” narrated a shabby looking Saini.

Mchinji police Public Relations Officer said Yasini will be charged with unlawful wounding and is expected to appear before the court this week.

Bambo ameneyu ndiye kuti mulandu womwe wapezeka nawo ndi wa unlawful wounding

At first glance this is horrific beating but on a deeper thinking there is no smoke without fire……the man cannot just beat her for its own sake.Maybe this man could be right that his wife was busy prostituting around probably for money.Many marriages which are founded on shaky grounds do not survive because of poverty like this one. If you do not have money as a husband you are subjected to ridicule and nagging by a wife and this too abuse though not physical is more damaging because it is psychological.So lets not judge by the surface…lets put more flesh… Read more »

pakufunika ma deliverance kwa bambo ameneyu chifukwa akuoneka kuti ntchito ya mkazi sakuidziwa , ali ndi ziwanda ameneyo


Vuto ndi Boma povomereza marriage age to be 18. Kodi munthu wa 18yrs angakhale mature nkukhala pa Banja? an 18yr old girl is just like a baby. still wonderling with life up to until 21yr or above ndipamene amayamba kukhala ndi maganizo okhazikika. Shame on this DPP Govt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Zomvetsa chisoni bwanji osangolekana .


I want this boy dead or live to teach him a lesson he will never forget in hell. If the courts cannot do justice befitting the humiliation and pain inflicted on this young lady, I will take the law in my own hands and punish this shit to hell. 20 years Akwanu and Justice Nyirenda is not enough for this galu. If Angwazi was here, crocodiles could have done a good job. I envy days when our Kamuzu was alive.

pankhuku pooneka mphepo ikati khwiiiii

Achira ameneyo ndinkwatira ine akamadzatuluka ku ndende kuli ana awiri

Mike siliya

Its painfull, ndiye mabanja a lero amenewo. Kutheka this lady chifukwa chakusakhwima nzeru, umphawi wa mwamuna ndi kuziwona wokongola amapangadi za uhule. but bcoz of barbaric action of his hubby, sizinganveke. chilungamo ndi chakuti men also suffer in silence. Nkhaza kwa abambonso ndi zambiri but it goes un reported! Harlot!!


Iwant to know judgement in this case

aheli moto

no no no this is barbaric. iam inquisitive to know the judgement. the confession in this man is what characterises most abusive people. they abuse, confess and abuse again. yausiru. no we should not tolerate such acts. i he cant change unless he is helped proffessionally- counselling
