Woman kills hubby over K2 500 disagreements: Faces murder charge

A 25-year-old woman in Dowa is facing murder case after she allegedly killed he husband on Monday over disagreements on how to use a K2 500 she had realized from piece work.

Dowa police spokesperson Richard Kaponda said Irene Yohane is alleged to have stabbed her husband to death around 10pm on Monday when he came home very drunk and wanted to take the money for another round of a drinking spree.

“The wife refused to hand over the money to him so he started beating her. In the process, he took a knife aiming at stabbing her but she overpowered her and stabbed him in the stomach instead,” said Kaponda.

He said some villagers came to the house and took the husband, Rashid Milanzi, to Mponela Health Centre where he was pronounced death on arrival.

Kaponda said Yohane will be brought to court to answer murder charges which attracts life imprisonment.

Self defense. No mlandu. She could have been the one dead, but thanks to being a strong woman.

I feel sorry for the wife. Sad that a life is lost but the circumstance was even beyond exercising self-control on the part of the woman. Poor husband!

No mlandu. In fact, ministry of Homeland security should employ this woman. She can work better as police officer than aja amagwiririra atsikana mu cell aja

it is I my life,

Sometimes learn to comment in non partisan way. Stop b’ame commenting and subject your brain to reason. The story is about a man who came home very drunk and wanted more money to keep on drinking hence the quarrel and fight that has led to his death.

I wonder how one connects this to the country’s worsening economy.

Problems exist at different levels and it’s good to at them in their context. By overshadowed the talk to national economy misses the home dynamics that culminated into the problem

What would the woman do in such a scenario? Allow the husband stab her to death? No! The women was wise. I have heard that in military, if your life is in danger, you can shoot to kill! The only problem will be to justify if her life was in really danger.

She acted in self-defence. It’s not murder.

This is ridiculous. This is at best a manslaughter case, at worst a self defense case and they should let her go!!!

This is not murder case but manslaughter because she was defending herself against a fully charged and angry person tough it is sad story because life has been lost.

Is this really a murder case? Aren’t we supposed to defend ourselves in an event of attack? This inebriated hubby was in the wrong and left unchallenged would have done damage to the lady or even death. Its a little better he is the one dead. I hope the courts will feel for this lady and exercise leniency.

O………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O Its just sad that the country’s economy has been so mismanaged for long that the effects have now spilled over to matters of love; as there is an acute supply of sensible men. . . . If things were normal, I would advise women never to get married to a drunkard. Its hell of a marriage! As you tend to disagree almost over everything. …………………………………………………………………… Yes, all is not rosy in marriages. There are battles and wars in marriages over so many issues. And yet, “Marriage is the only war in which you sleep with the enemy.” – Francois… Read more »
