A 27 year-old woman in Nkhatabay district has savagely killed her mother in-law for finding the woman’s former husband another wife.

Police in the lakeshore district have confirmed the incident and have since arrested the woman for the murder.

Nkhata Bay Police Spokesperson Sergeant Ignatius Esau told the local media that the woman, Sylvia Chirwa, murdered her 64 year-old mother in-law, Leah Banda, on Sunday in the evening.

knife-bloodAccording to the police spokesperson, Chirwa used to live in South Africa with her ex-husband who is Banda’s son and together they have a five year-old child.

But nine years into the marriage they got divorced and the woman was forced to come back to Malawi.

Chirwa’s ex-husband later remarried after Banda found him another wife and this incensed the suspect.

“Reports suggest that the suspect had been threatening to deal with the deceased because she believed that her ex-mother in-law had a hand in the breakup of her marriage,” he narrated.

On Sunday Chirwa found the chance to carry out her evil plans. She went to Banda’s house where she found her asleep and stabbed the old woman in the stomach before stabbing her four times at the back using a knife.

The issue was reported to police and officers rushed to the scene of the incident together with medical personnel.

Banda however deceased died while she was being taken to Nkhata Bay District Hospital.

Police have since charged Chirwa with murder.

“We have managed to arrest the suspect but the knife that was used is yet to be recovered. Once investigations into the matter are over, Chirwa will be taken to court to answer a murder charge which is contrary to section 209 of the penal code,” he said.

Both the suspect and the deceased come from Chibwana village in Traditional Authority Mankhambira in Nkhata Bay district.
