The Malawi Police in the tobacco growing district of Kasungu have commenced a massive manhunt for a middle aged man for allegedly killing his wife.

According to information sourced from Malawi Police the suspect has been identified as Kasiteni
Mwale,36, of Shimwaza village in the area of Traditional Authority Chilowamatambe in the district.

Facts are that, the suspect Mwale had been on separation with the deceased for two months.

It is alleged that, the two separated after the deceased rejected Mwale’s demand
that they should offer their four children for rituals to get rich.

On the day the deceased was murdered, it is alleged that Mwale visited the deceased under the pretext that they should reconcile.

After having a lengthy conversation, the deceased started escorting the suspect who on the way hacked her with an axe in the
head.

The incident was witnessed by the
deceased’ grandmother who was following them at a distance after becoming suspicious with the suspect.

After realizing that he had been seen by the deceased’ grandmother, Mwale also hacked
the deceased grandmother who is now admitted at Ntchisi District Hospital.

Postmortem conducted at Kasungu District Hospital showed that death was due to head injury secondary to Cerebral Hemorrhage.

The deceased hailed from Chigambatula village under Traditional Authority Chilowamatambe in Kasungu district.
