General News Kitwe hubby kills himself after murdering his wife

A 40-year- old Kitwe man is reported to have murdered his 34-year old wife and later took his own life.

Copperbelt Province Police Commissioner, Elias Chushi has confirmed that mother to the deceased, Joyce Muchimba,58; reported that her daughter, Prisca Muchimba was beaten by her husband, Jackson Mwansa and sustained a deep cut on the forehead.

ZANIS reports that Mr. Chushi said in a statement that Prisca was rushed to Kitwe Teaching Hospital where she was admitted and later died.

“Brief facts are that on June 15 2021,the couple had a marital dispute and the husband hit his wife with unknown object on her forehead.

“ She sustained a deep cut, became unconscious and was rushed to Kitwe Teaching Hospital where she was admitted, but died later,” Mr Chushi said.

He said the two bodies have been deposited in the KTH mortuary awaiting postmortem and burial.


  1. Big bro KZ. Marital disputes in most case are emotional but men need to show leadership by managing their anger. People should understand that marriage is not for boys.

  2. @rushed to the hospital were s/he later died.’ This is a common theme in Zambia. When will hospitals ever save victims of violence? There is obviously no capacity to diagnose injuries in Zambia outside Lusaka and even then, there is no brain surgeon to treat head injuries.

  3. When a quarrel ensues, leave. This guy did not possibly aim at killing the wife; he only did it out of anger. When the fury subsided, he couldn’t contain his actions and went for Romeo and Juliet stunt. Please, let’s work on anger management.
    It calls for emotional intelligence.

  4. why was a bad man, the guy died for her? Even you Kaizer, your wife don’t enjoy your… she is terrified of that gun you put under her pillow.

  5. Passion killings becoming very common for the shallow minded menfolk, especially the untested millennials.
