A 31 year-old man in Mzuzu has died after hanging himself to a tree due to a family dispute .

Martin Bwanali, Mzuzu Police Public Relations Officer has confirmed to Malawi24 and said the incident occurred on 31st May 2016 at Mng’onamo area in Mzuzu city. He also  identified the deceased as Andrew Chinula Nyirenda. hanging

Bwanali said Nyirenda got married in 2015 but due to some family disputes the wife moved out of the house and went to stay with her relatives.

On 27th May 2016, the husband went to the wife’s where roundtable discussions were held before advocates from both sides. The discussions proved futile as they did not help unite the two.

The husband however became desperate. On 31st May 2016 in the morning hours he was found hanging from a tree.

Postmortem conducted at Ekwendeni Mission Hospital indicated that death was due to strangulation.

Meanwhile Mzuzu Police have advised men to share their family issues with their good friends in order to get positive advice. The police say sharing of family problems helps to avoid stress which if poorly managed lead husbands to commit suicide.

“A lot of institutions are available that provide marriage counselling. Churches are one such good institutions and husband should utilise them. Taking away life is not the best solution,” said the Mzuzu Police Public Relations Officer Martin Bwanali.

The deceased was from Galangonda village, Traditional Authority Chikulamayembe in Rumphi district.

  1. R I P mzimuwake uwuse ndimdendele koma akukayakha mlandu pamasopa MULUNGU,bcoz mulungu samakondwela ndiimfa yodzimpha,Mulungu samalephela kuchotsa vuto pamuthu.

  2. eershi mpaka kizinjata mnkhosi. The other problem i have come across is most of the suicidees are not church members and they don’t have concrete friends to share their grievances and seek help from. Ok you the weak ones will die like that. Come to me i will assist you accordingly and will appreciate.
