The sudden demise of a woman in Area 36 of the capital city Lilongwe has been linked to a number of causes making it hard to establish as to what might have killed her.
The young lady whose name is understood to have been Vanessa Thom but was fondly called Zawo, is reported to have died on Saturday at her Area 36 residence.
Although different versions of the same story have been told through social media, most fingers point at one cause.
Most people believe Zawo was poisoned by her husband while others have strongly refuted the claim. As efforts to get to the root cause intensify, a woman identified as the deceased’s friend has told her side of the story.
She has testified that her late friend was poisoned by her husband who is currently on the run. The bereaved has also warned other girls never to accept the suspected killer’s love proposal.
According to the woman, the suspect already had a wife before hooking up with Zawo. He was renting the Area 36 apartment for her.
However, this remains an unconfirmed Facebook report. The remains of the late Zawo have been taken to her home at Bunda just outside the city.
