Written by  Naomie Nyirenda

Dedza, December 5: Police in Dedza are keeping in custody a 32 year old man, Notice Abumeli for murdering his neighbour.

The police have identified the deceased as Dada Kheva, 33, from Khomo village Traditional Authority (TA) Chilikumwendo in Dedza district.

According to Dedza Police Spokesperson, Edward Kabango, the deceased went for drinking spree with the suspect at Kabwazi trading centre and at around 5pm, they both returned home where Abumeli started beating his wife. This did not please the deceased.

“We have been informed that the deceased got upset with what his friend was doing and he rushed to the suspect’s house to separate them which got the suspect mad,” he explained.

After successfully separating the fighting couple, another fight is said to have broke out between the deceased and the suspect.  

Apparently, Abumeli was angry because the deceased intervened in his household affairs.

It was at this point, when the two were fighting when Notice stabbed the deceased on the neck and he died on the spot.

Abumeli hails from Khomo village TA Chilikumwendo and he will soon appear in court to answer murder charges.
