Sex worker kills man in Nkhotakota


Malawi Police in Nkhotakota are keeping in custody a 22-year-old sex worker for allegedly murdering a 26-year-old man at Mwansambo Trading Centre in the district over infidelity disagreements.

According to Nkhotakota Police spokesperson Williams Kaponda, on Friday the suspect Memory Chikanga and the deceased Mark Manuel were drinking beer at a bar around the trading centre.

“Later, Chikanga excused herself saying she wanted to change her clothes at a rest house where she was lodging.  After some time, the deceased followed the sex worker to the rest house.

Blood.“When Manuel reached the room in which the suspect lodged, he found her having sex with another man a development that angered him,” said Kaponda.

According to Kaponda, a quarrel started between the two before the suspect snatched a Carlsberg bottle from the deceased, broke it on the ground and then thrust it into his neck.

“Well-wishers took Manuel to Mwansambo Health Centre where he was pronounced dead.  A medical report shows that he died due excessive loss of blood,” said Kaponda

Meanwhile, Chikanga is expected to appear before a court where she will answer murder charges.

Chikanga hails from Futi village in the area of Traditional Authority Kalonga in Salima district while the deceased hailed from Mtemanyanga village in the area of Traditional Authority Mwansambo in Nkhotakota district.
