A 40-year-year-old man has died after being beaten at a wedding eve party in Malawi’s capital Lilongwe.
Kanengo police publicist Salome Zgambo Chibwana has identified the deceased as Thokozani Katuma.
According Chibwana, Geoffrey Katuma who is the father to the victim told police that the victim was staying alone at Area 25C in the city.
It is reported that on Friday night, the victim went to attend wedding eve celebrations within the area.
Whilst at the party, there were misunderstandings between the victim and other people which resulted into a fight.
Later the victim left the place only to be found close to his house lying unconscious on Saturday, July 29.
He was taken to Kamuzu Central Hospital where he died on Sunday while receiving treatment.
Postmortem results done at Kamuzu central hospital shows that death was due to head injuries and loss of blood.
Police are investigating the issue in order to arrest the suspects who will likely answer charges of murder.
The law enforcers have since pleaded with members of the general public to avoid taking laws into their own hands whenever they have any misunderstandings.
The deceased hailed from Jekete village in the area of Traditional Authority Mpama in Chiradzulu district.
