POLICE: Man beats wife to death in Chilubi

POLICE in Chilubi have arrested a 35 year old man of Chief Matipa’s area for allegedly murdering his wife following a domestic dispute.

Northern Province Deputy Police Commissioner Edwin Bwanga has confirmed the incident to ZANIS and identified the suspect as Zacharia Mwelwe.

Mr Bwanga said the couple is said to have picked up a quarrel which resulted in a fight and led to the death of the wife.

He said the man is believed to have used kicks, fists and other unknown objects during the fight.

Mr Bwanga identified the deceased as Muma Chale whose remains have since been buried.

Meanwhile, Mr Bwanga has advised couples to desist from resorting to violent behaviour whenever they have misunderstandings.

He said couples must learn to seek counsel and avoid violent acts which may lead to death of either partner.

The deputy police chief added that it is unfortunate that such an incidence has occurred when the world is observing the 16 days of Activism against Gender Based Violence.

    Let government open schools to train people on anger and conflict management before granting the right to marry. If you fail no marriage. That’s why traditionally they had “chikomwene”. Marriage is not for the dull
