Police in Mazabuka have arrested an elderly woman of Mugoba area in Chief Mwanachingwala’s chiefdom in connection with the murder of her husband.

Both Police and Chief Mwanachingwala confirmed the arrest of Funny N’gandu to ZANIS in Mazabuka today.

Chief Mwanachigwala narrated that a rift between the couple was first witnessed
following bitter quarrel at a beer party.

He said a fight thereafter ensued when the now deceased husband asked the wife to
stop drinking beer and go home and prepare food for the children as it was getting
late.

Chief Mwanachingwala said the wife was furiously incensed by the husband’s request
to go home and prepare food for the family and descended on the husband and started
beating him in full view of stunned bar patrons.

Chief Mwanachingwala, who is the first cousin to the deceased, said the woman
continued beating her late husband even when they arrived home.

He said the woman is later suspected to have used an unspecified weapon to further
clobber the husband leading to his death.

Chief Mwanachingwala, who provided fuel to the Police for them to pick up the
suspect, said his cousin died upon reaching Mazabuka District Hospital.

The body of the deceased Simon N’gandu, 67, is lying in Mazabuka District Hospital
mortuary.

  1. Now, are we supposed to stop imbibing with our wives for fear they might turn against us and kill us? Very sad story indeed.

  2. This is very Sad and all the Women and NGOs are quite but if it was a man killing a Woman the whole Nation could have been speaking for Women. I think men should also be protected*

  4. Shame!My take is there must have probably been other issues going on with this couple even before the husband told the wife to go home.I don’t think that what he said to her would have caused her to beat him to death even under the influence of alcohol. Authorities should see that justice is done,cause no one has the right to take any bodies life.At the same tim,we should not condemn this woman until we know what exactly was going on to the point that she lost it resulting in killing her husband

  5. 98% of Zambian men beat thier wives, First time anyone has ever heard of a woman clobbering her husband to death! My dad use to beat my mum to such an extent that she had to stay out of sunlight for at least two weeks, to protect her badly swollen eyes. My brothers beat thier wives so did all my neighbours, especially on PAY DAY except for a preacher next door who came from Tanzania, my first boyfriend beat me for refusing him sex, my childhood friend was beaten to death by her jealous husband..

  8. any guy who beats up girls is a wimp, and girls should allow it! Making up by kissing after the abuse just shows how sick one is, its typical for a naive girl to allow herself to be cooled down with a kiss or shag after that, a woman who has expirence of abusive men would run away soooo fast.., cuz who strikes once will strike again, my girlfriend died from the hands of an abusive husband, it all started out with a slap then making up with a cuddle, later, then over the years slaps turned into real beatings with kicking and finally he used an iron bar on the head! Dispite my advice of leaving him she thought he would change one day, it only stopped when she was OUT COLD!

  9. Where there is loss of life people should not joke about it. Wife or husband battering should be condemned in the strongest sense.

  11. emwe ladies in zambia, these men will continue to treat bad in front of others. its obvious this man had been doing this for some time and that anger escalated leading to his death.
    yes she shud be punished for her actions infact she shud face life in prison. she shud have left his house if it got worse.
    the answer lies in the first words are elders teach us, find God, take your marriage to God, let him bless it n all things will follow through. Dont know about you but i have been married to my man for over 25 years and i am still very happy

  12. #8 I know that men who beat their women are common in Zambia but don’t you think your statistics are exaggerated? Nevertheless, I feel that some silly girls deserve a slap from time to time but I don’t want to be the one to deliver it.

  15. I think that it is silly of you all to believe the story without hearing her side of it. How can someone be convicted before they have spoken for themself? It is hard for me to believe that a woman just start beating her husband because he asked her to cook for her kids. That is not realistic. What is even more sad is that some people on this page said they agree with a woman being hit in you are living in 2008. We are not cavemen. You are suppose to show honor and respect to your wife. If abuse your wife regardless of how you were raised, you will be held to a higher power and that is by God, our heavenly Father and the ultimate judge

  16. Women do not just clobber other people to death. Unlike most men, women are rational and there must be a big reason to kill her husband. And could he not defend himself? And at that age to kill someone??

  17. You all need to get a reality check! If you are married you should be in love and if you are not in love well then you shouldn’t be married. If someone does something really horrible to you I can see hitting them if a guy hits a women it better only be because she hit him. But anyway if you are about to going to or did hit your wife or husband then how about you divorce instead of hitting cause as always and forever that’s not love less its just a kinky thing you do in bed cause both of you enjoy it.
