A man aged 18 in Chikwawa has killed a fellow man over a sex worker.
Chikwawa police public relations officer Foster Benjamin identified the murder suspect as Malora Fulingi.
According to Benjamin, on Thursday Fulingi stoned 20-year-old Wilfred Billiat and the victim died on Saturday.
“On that particular day, at Kafule Village in the area of Traditional Authority N’gabu in the district, both the deceased and the suspect were drinking beer at the village bar.
“Billiat is alleged to have hooked up with one of the sex workers, which angered the suspect since he had also feasted his eyes on the same lady,” Benjamin said.
A quarrel between the two erupted which descended into a fight. That is when the suspect picked up a stone and hit the victim on the head.
The victim was taken to Chikwawa District Hospital where he died on Saturday while receiving treatment.
Fulingi has since been arrested and has been charged with murder. He comes from Ching’oma Village in Traditional Authority N’gabu in Chikwawa district.
