By Mike Gwadani
A 39-year-old man has committed suicide in Nkhata Bay District after his wife got news that he has impregnated their neighbor.
Nkhatabay Police Station public relations officer Kondwani James has confirmed.
He said that the deceased hanged himself in a tree.
He says the man has been identified as Gift Kalua of Songowele Village in the area of Traditional Authority Nyaluwanga in the district.
“Kalua on January 19, 2021 evening, heard his sister in-law tipping her elder sister (his wife) about the pregnancy of the woman whose husband is in South Aftrica.
Upon sensing that the matter has been unveiled to his wife, Kalua got depressed.
He later bid a farewell to his wife, saying that he wanted to leave for his home village. He further asked the wife to take care of his four children” said he.
James further says On January 21, 2021 morning, Kalua was found hanging in a tree in the nearby bush.
“Immediately after receiving reports, Nkhata Bay Police visited the scene and took the body to Chikwina Health Centre where death was confirmed.
An autopsy done at the healthy facility unveiled that he died due to suffocation secondary to strangulation and no foul play has been suspected” said James.
Meanwhile Police in the district are therefore advising members of the community to refrain from opting for suicide a way of resolving issues, but rather seek guidance from elders.
