  1. If she was luvale, he might have a good case for self defence. I had a bad experience with a luvale woman who I gladly divorced. I was also given custody of my boys and last born daughter.

  2. Njala muchalo. No day is passing in the new dawn without gruesome news like this making headlines. The husband probably failed to buy mealie meal.

  3. Why do you marry if you can’t control yourself? I have never laid a finger on my wife who has given me 4 children and will never even if she enrages me. But I know she will never.
