23-year old mu#dered by husband after finding her with another man.

A 23-year-old woman of Mpika has allegedly been mu#dered by her husband after finding her in the act with another man.

Mary Ngosa is believed to have been found de@d behind the toilet of her alleged lover Alex Sichalwe.

Ms Ngosa is believed to have moved to her parents house to recover after having a miscarriage.

It is believed that as she had gone to live with her parents, her husband only known as ‘Bashi Junior’ saw her at a bar some days later sitted close to Mr Sichalwe, her alleged lover and he suspected them of being in a relationship.

Police have since launched a manhunt for the suspect who is allegedly on the run.

Muchinga province comimanding officer Kaunda Mubanga said the incident occurred between18:30 hours and 19:30 hours yesterday in Mwansabamba village of Mpika district.

He said that the incident was reported by Dainess Mwaba aged 57, the step mother to the dece@sed.

“Brief facts are that the deceased was in marriage with a Man known as Bashi Junior. Two weeks down the line, the deceased had a miscarriage and so she went to stay with her parents so that she recovers fully before rejoining her husband. However yesterday on March 18th, this year, the husband to the now deceased known only as Bashi Junior found his wife drinking beer at Alex Sichalwe’s bar and that she sat very close to Alex Sichalwe as though they were in a love relationship,” he said.

Mr Mubanga said this raised suspicion and her husband was vigilantly watching her movements.

“At around 19:30 hours, Alex Sichalwe allegedly found the deceased lying down behind the toilet at his house. He allegedly tried to help her to get back to where people were drinking from but she could not stand up. He then went back and informed people who were drinking and together they went and they verified that it was Mary Ngosa and that she was de@d.”

“It is suspected that the husband to the deceased caught his wife red-handed having carnal knowledge with Alex Sichalwe who ran away leaving her behind being beaten by her husband and later died,” he said.
