  1. Sad to the dead wife and grandmother.The problem women are treated as property which can be treated in anyhow.Wife ceases to be human with feelings and that she ceases still to belong to her family as a child but a house toy.I have said many times MPs should address excessive beer drinking in villages leaving women to fend for themselves.Men should be answerable and accountable to village headman/Group headman up to TA.Empower chiefs to instil discipline by having their chieftainship bylaws on responsibility and role of a husband.This should read Chief Chilowamatambe Kasungu east

  4. The man is evil more than a devil him self, death pelnaty is a gud punishment for this man, hey malawians, the law of equality is prescribed to you in cases of murder, the free for free, the slave for the slave, in the law of equality there is saving of life, a life for a life, an eye to an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth and wounds to wounds, these murder cases should be judged in accordance. So I think the man should be given that handsome judgement!

  7. Akaziwa akumaonjeza pena akumatilakwitsa amunafe mpaka mamuna kupanga zomwe sumaganizira coz of mwano…uhule ndi zina zotero…..anyway R I Peace

  8. Life prison is loading on this man.He must lot in jail how can he hacked his wife with an axe.He should have accepted that the wife doesnt want marriage with him and he would better start looking for other women than taking adrasic decision which has now ended him behind bars.

  9. There is a lesson here to be learnt. Somebody comes to resolve marriage issues fully armed with an axe. After discusions you decide to escort him home. Don’t dare do it. It’s dangerous. Understand the grandma has also died now. Imfazi zinali zopeweka pakanakhala anthu oganiza mwachangu. May their souls RIP.
