Girl killed by boyfriend in Mzuzu


A sombre atmosphere swallowed up Sonda Township in Malawi’s northern region city of Mzuzu, where people discovered the bodies of a girl identified by villagers as Gertrude Nyirenda and her baby brother who are believed to have been murdered by Nyirenda’s boyfriend.

Malawi24 follow up on the story on Wednesday; found that the boy, Anthony Gumbo has a tendency of proposing girls and later killing them to give sacrifices to his marine spirits, according to locals.

Sources claimed that the deceased was not the first one in the city as related cases have already been reported in the past years. They confessed that the boy is good looking and financially stable that when he comes in every area, he becomes every girl’s choice.

Attracted by the financial background of the boy, the deceased girl was loyal to every arrangement he had for her.

Murder on the rise in Malawi.

According to our source, with the consent of the girl’s parents, the couple could have some regular hangouts to Chikale beach, Lhano Park and some luxurious hotels in town.

Our source claimed that the suspect managed to convince the girl’s parents with Lobola amounting to MK 900, 000 but they too were ignorant of the motives of their son in-law.

“Malawian parents like money too much. He managed to blind them with only about MK 900, 000 and could hang out with their daughter freely. They thought with his financial background, he was suitable to manage their daughter,” said Amosi Mlotha.

It is believed that despite the marriage arrangements, nobody knew where the boy was coming from as he cheated them of owning a big business in the city.

Because he had money nobody dared to ask him further and everyone in the area thought he was the in-law that would change the family’s financial story.

“Nobody cared about his origin, everyone thought he was mature enough and could take care of the family. Even when paying for the bride price, he just came with his three friends who were also well to do,” added Mlotha.

Just last week the couple had another hang out but this one was the last one for the girl because the boy took him to a certain forest where in company of his friends, they killed and chopped her breasts along with her private parts before burning her.

Days later a certain woman who has her garden close to the wilderness got a strange smell and when she followed up, she found that the girl was burnt from legs to the neck but only the  head was left with some minor injuries thus it was easy for people to identify her.

“They found her in the bush stinking. Because she was not completely burnt, we easily identified her and the issue was reported to police who had their investigations on the scene. We buried her two days ago,” Mlotha said.

Village headman Zgambo of the area has since confirmed the development adding that the deceased girl was killed together with her baby brother she carried along on this fateful day.

“The girl also carried her young brother to where they went. He also died and we found his body yesterday. We buried the same day,” said Zgambo.

When asked for to comment, the girl’s parents claimed to have nothing to say but only maintained that God knows why they have lost two children simultaneously.

When contacted to confirm the development, Police publicist for Mzuzu sub inspector Patrick Saulosi asked for time to comment on the matter.

  10. The guy was not paying lobola but rather making an investment. Am a tumbuka, i’ve never heard lobola of that magnitude{K900,000}. This could have surprised her parents. The guy new that his return on investment will surpass that amount. Glad that he has been arrested. So sad RIP.
