Malawi Police in Shire Valley district of Chikwawa are keeping in custody 18 year old Malora Fulingi for allegedly killing a fellow man over a sex worker.
Fulingi is believed to have stoned 20 year old Wilfred Billiat who succumbed to his death on Saturday since the incident occurred on Thursday.
Chikwawa Police Station, Public Relations Officer, Constable Foster Benjamin, said on that particular day, at Kafule Village in the area of Senior Chief Ngabu in the district, both the deceased and the suspect were drinking beer at the village bar.
“Billiat is alleged to have hooked one of the sex workers a thing which angered the suspect since he had also feasted his eyes on the same lady.
A fierce quarrel erupted which descended into a fight. The suspect picked up a stone and hit the other man on the head.
He was later taken to Chikwawa District Hospital where he died on Saturday while receiving treatment,” said Chikwawa police PRO
Fulingi who was at large was arrested and has since been charged with murder.
He comes from Ching’oma Village in Senior Chief Ngabu in Chikwawa district.
