Ms. Zulu explained that on December 15, the deceased, who was fined K 2, 000 for adultery by the local court, told his wife that he would not afford to raise the money hence it would be better for him to die.

Ms. Zulu said Mhone was on December 16 found hanging on the tree within his yard.

    • Only in Lundazi…. How many times we told these Courts to use traditional punishment, like sweeping hospital or go thatch a house for an elderly woman in village?
      What did court wanted to buy from $200?

  1. To bad my cousins are dying like that. You should asked us Bembas to bell you out you poor man. Even Lungu your brother failed to pay for you. Shame on you Nsengas. May your soul rest in piece my friend.

  2. His wife was supposed to report to the police now it’s like she kept it secretly those are the consequences of keeping unnecessary secret

  3. With these poverty levels, you ask a villager to pay 2 pin. Where would he get it from other than thieving. He had no alternative to committing suicide after the embarrassment.

    • …but the free gift of God is salvation through our Lord Christ Jesus . There is forgiveness, even for the vilest offence if only we repent.

  4. Why die over nyele!!! Who does not do it anyway. I kwata aniche all the time and why should I die for helping those who do not have them. Is to assist – dont be selfish bane – kikikikikik!!!!!
    Disaster he is gone and who services the two women left now.
    For villagers just ask them to plough someone’s field or cut trees where they are not needed kwasila.

  5. I NEED TO PYANIKA HIS WIFE GIVE ME CONTACTS , AT 26 MARRIED? AND EVEN LOOKING FOR EXTRA UMUNANI, CUT HIS NTWENO FOR EXPERIMENTS AT SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

  6. WHY DO COURTS ONLY PUNISH MEN LEAVING THE OTHER FREE , THEY SHOULD BOTH BE PUNISHED CAUSE THEY WERE BOTH AT FULT AND THEY WERE BOTH ENJOYING EACH OTHER , WEMEN AND LADIES OF NOWDAYS DON’T FEAR ADULTELY

  7. Simple matter, you end up committing suicide. Every action has consequences. Nikulimba M’dala. Vigororo vayamba lero???? People have been committing adultery since time immemorial. It’s even on record in the Bible. Very Stupide man.
