  1. Very sad situation. Domestic Violence is a terrible global scourge. He didn’t run away what happed no one will now. they fought he regretted the outcome. what ever happened maybe she tried also tried to kill him also and he won no one will know that’s why its should never be. Walk away if feeling out of control. We will hear what the courts will decide. Just sad

  2. Mwendi Mutale na wayawaile ku somisa kwateni ku Mayembe, cwale Mayembe ku kengelela likomu kaufela za lifile lionda kono kwa musiyo u fula mwa manamani, apuu, seli kuli muBemba wanyela cwale!

  3. In a spilt second when anger has taken over rational thinking one can save a situation by taking that very important step away! Sad indeed, we all were given a life without asking or owing for it by somebody so that we can thrive and no rights were given that we take another persons’ life! Let not anger drive one to levels of irrationality! We all have that power to take that first step away from it all!

  4. Aaaah, so sorry for the wife. May she rest in peace. He will definitely live a lifetime of regret as of now, the consequence of losing his freedom.
