Wife stabs drunken hubby for failure to provide for family: Bizarre news in Malawi

A 30 year old man is battling for his life at Kasungu district hospital after he was stabbed on the head by his wife for failure to provide for his family.

Edna Mzingwitsa, Kasungu police publicist said the incident happened over the weekend and the wife has since been arrested and charged with grievous bodily harm, a serious charge for wounding another person.

Mzingwitsa said Gift Nkhoma had gone for a drinking spree without leaving money for his family.

“This irked the wife who packed his belongings and left the house for her parents home in protest,” said Mzingwitsa.

She said upon returning home, Nkhoma discovered his wife had left the house and decided to follow her.

When Nkhoma reached the woman’s home, the police publicist said, a fight ensued that led to the wife allegedly hacking the husband on the head leaving an open wound.

Nkhoma comes from Kasambwe village in chief Kabudula in Lilongwe but the family settled in chief Santhe’s area in Kasungu where they worked as tenants on a tobacco farm.

@ Becks, it’s not even stupid and foolish. A man as head of his family is supposed to provide for his family. A woman is there to help. How can someone claim that he is heading the family which he can’t provide for?

What a title!! Please, journalists, be serious. Story and the title do not talk to each other.
The facts are clear in the story, the wife stabbed the husband in self defense because she was evidently provoked and not because the husband did not provide.
