A woman in Embangweni, Mzimba on Saturday poisoned her baby to death before committing suicide after her husband left her for another woman.

The woman identified as Tamara Nyirenda was found dead in her house together with the child on Saturday in the morning.  dead

She left a suicide note in which she claimed that she hatched the decision to escape from marital problems which she was facing. According to the note, Nyirenda became depressed after getting reports that her husband who stays in South Africa married another woman.

“He (the husband), must enjoy the life as he wish. I think, I was the barrier to his enjoyment,” states part of the note.

In an interview, the woman’s neighbour Davison Chirwa said the husband is based in South Africa and has been there for close to 10 years.

“So he was not giving any help to the wife. He changed his number and there was no communication since 4 years ago,” said Chirwa.

Speaking on the issue, Village headman Jeremiah Jere of the area bemoaned the tendency among his subjects of rushing to commit suicide when faced with challenges.

He said suicide is not a solution thus people must consider seeking guidance and counselling.

On his part, commissioner of police in Mzimba Louis Chigadula also lamented the rise in suicide cases in Mzimba.

  6. For the common good n respect of human dignity we need to learn how to control emotions.By sidelining all the situations we’re passing through,remember that God is able.

  7. onething we have to is we differ the way we handle things, but committing suicide is not the solution….i myself I adergone such type of situation but with the grace of God here iam…above all when problems arise seek advice from elderly people than making wrong decision

  10. 100% with you there Antony Muyila. That is the mentality of most people thinking that they can’t live without X or Y. But personally I have and still defining my tomorrow without depending on someone and to make things worse I thought would never ever rise up after going through what I call” TRAUMA TO RISE UP”! I have been there but only few people especially my closest knows what in hell I have been. But with that being said, have never the let the Trauma push me down but took advantage of it and realized my goals I once had. As am talking am studying and with God’s help soon will be in your radio stations or TV #Broadcasting! I pay my own university fees and my own bills. If I thought of committing suicide would I be able to see the face that put me through hell? No. Now am the one with the last laugh. So being cheated upon is not the end of the world rather it’s a chance for the victim to find their own paths and worthy. #NO TO SUICIDE!AND NO TO ABUSE OF ANY FORM!! Each one of us has a potential to GROW and become who we want to be. #Wake up Malawi.

  11. Very sad. Lets share our fears and worries family and freinds. Lets pay an extra attention to our relatives, freinds and neighbours if we notice unusual change of mood in them. RIP

  16. its sad indeed but to kill an innocent baby even her life for a man ,maybe we don’t how they living behind close Doré’s ,we have to learn and try to move on if some one is angry try not to act at the same time,only God knows what was happening in their house ,she lost his and babies life. kodi bamboyo akumva bwanji mkati mwake

  17. In the first place alot of men don’t know who they are when they get married. God placed a husband as a lover a protector and as a director of the wife and children in fact a husband represent God in the family, but most of them they become the tail in the family than to be the head, the moment you step your foot out of your house for an external lover you have already failed to be a protector 1 because your interests will be divided or gone to the new one. You don’t know if the new lady is sick you bring diseases for your old wife are you protecting her or you are making her vulnerable? When there is a problem in a family the solution shouldn’t be an extra relationship but God’s advice on marriage. You will run the family smoothly. Now I have talked on the responsibility of the husband but you will find that the wife also don’t listen to the husband they are stubborn difficult to correct slenderous nugging those are characters that come from the devil to detract the love of the husband and you will fund that the husband has a froze brain which can not contain all that he gets tired and get another woman to polarise his stress and eventually you become the victim. Let’s follow principles of God then our marriages will stay RIP young lady

  18. What is the gain in suicide let alone killing an innocent child? The sweet revenge if someone dumps you is to upgrade yourself physically, mentally and emotionally to the point of leaving the bustard who dumped you wondering if you are the same person s/he ran away from!! Above all leave everything else in God’s hands. It works out perfectly!!! #based on experience

    • I agree with you Nyachirwa,But the problem with most Malawian women is lack of vision,they just think of getting married without empowering themselves. This trend has to stop. Most men capitalise on such women to mistreat them. They say mba goalkeeper. Please let’s empower women’s.

  19. Akaz ambiri saganiza bwino. Inde Chikondi nichimenecho koma ngat

  22. Ogo!o! But why commiting suicide as if that man was your relative? pliz! people out there your husband is not your relative neither is your wife. therefore you should love them, but do not trust them.

  23. NTHUMAZI INAYAMBA KUNDIGWIRA,KUONA NGAT NKHANI YACHITIKA KU #MALAWI,KMA NDITAWERNGA MOFATSA NDAPEZA KUT NDIYAKUNJA; KU #MPOTO. KMABE SORRY

  24. very sad news to hear about. my advise to general public is that commtng suicide isnt best solution to deal wth family disputes. God’s time is the best, am sure God Himself wud hav givn u a caring & lovng husband afterwards. commitng suicide is just the worst decision of all. let us share our problems to our closest friends. mind u that problem shared is half way down solvd. RIP.
