Man murders wife over jealousy


A 36-year-old man in Lilongwe is in police custody for murdering his wife after suspecting her of  having a sexual affair with another man.

Police have identified the man as Major Wilson and his wife as Teleza Namizinga Wilson.

According to Kanengo police spokesperson Salome Chibwana, the couple had been married for 15 years and had no child.

The husband started suspecting the wife of cheating on him when he heard rumours from people that she was having affairs with other men.

“On the fateful day, the suspect came from work and found his wife attending to customers at their shop. The husband then suspected one man of being his wife’s lover and he ordered his wife to go home and prepare dinner,” said Zgambo.

Later on the husband grabbed all the things that the customer bought alleging that they were given freely to him by the wife.

The husband then went home and started arguing with the woman and later beat her using bamboo stick.

Out of anger, the woman left the bedroom and went to the sitting room while crying.

Later on she stopped crying and the husband thought she was asleep only to wake up in the morning and find the woman dead.

The suspect then called his in law who advised him to surrender himself to police.
Postmortem results done at Kamuzu Central Hospital shows that death was due to blood loss and head injuries.

The suspect will appear in court soon to answer charges of murder.

The woman came from Namate village, Traditional Authority Mthiramanja in Mulanje while the suspect Major Wilson comes from Mdenga village Traditional Authority Nsamala in Balaka.



  1. kunena chilungamo amaniwa sanalakwe coz ndizopweteka kwambiri nkazi kumukuenda njomba and panopa ndikhalidwe la azimayi a mmabanja ochuluka nde zingasiike bwanji dats de only way 2 go ,sono kungomuleka mtima ungazamamuwawe koopsa.

  2. Guys: kodi mutakhala ndi loko pa nyumba panu koma olowa ma key osiyanasiyana mumutani loko ameneyu? Nanga mutakhala ndi key yemwe akutsekula ma loko osiyanasiyana mumutani? Honestly answer these two questions. A case of a man and wife.

  3. Today adultery has become normal. To you men you are married, if your wife is pregnant, don’t be 100% that the baby is yours. A certain person said, chigololo ndi muliri ku Malawi. Now pregnancy and HIV is on increase. TAKE CARE.

  4. Very sad but the problem is he opened a pub and let his wife to entertain customers, i know them all, they were living in Mgona village opposite Soweto bar the wife was a cheater.

  5. It’s not jealousy and love to kill. Many women know of boyfriends and husbands having wives and girlfriends on the sides. As a society we even joke about mg2s yet we don’t hear of murderous 1st wives. It’s patriarchy misogyny and ownership to kill.

  6. Both were wrong. The woman cheated. If she was not happy or satisfied with the man why didn’t she left him? Though it’s painful but the best way to take for the man was just to leave her. But it’s painful to hear your wife or husband having a sexual relationship with someone

  7. Katundu ameneyi siwogawana ayi mbali zose ndiye kupha kumachitika sikoyamba alipo anthu ambili akupha azimayi chenjelani mutha

  8. Very sad news. The act of placing confidence in someone or something else—is a fundamental human experience, necessary for society to function and for any person to be relatively happy. Without it, fear rules. Trust is not either/or proposition, but a matter of degree, and certain life experiences can impact a person’s ability to trust others. The fear of unknown. Racing thoughts of suspicion or anxiety, terror, violence, darkness and death. Self imprisonment.

  9. love is difficult wen you get into love and to love someone is different this man was In it and he can not go to some one else wen he was inside the love people who love their wives are jealous ,to bad the problem now is to loose everything God forgive the world

  10. Sorry msn l know this os a wrong time to give you advice sinanga zaonongeka kale but next life do as l tell you that there are So many women around no need to fight over a woman and nthawi yomakhala busy kumalonda akazi inatha ,if she’s fucking around let her go.
