An 18-year-old-boy has killed himself by hanging after caught red handed having sex with his grandfather’s second wife in Rumphi district north of Malawi.
Information gathered by Nyasa Times alleges that Nebert Mwandila of Zunguzungu village T/A Chikulamayembe was caught having sex with his 32 year old grandmother, Catherine Gondwe, but immediately left the village to avoid embarrassment.
“He was found dead hanging on a tree in a nearby forest,” said Haswel Mwandira, a resident of Zunguzungu village.
He said police and medical experts who visited the scene confirmed that the teenage boy had died due to suffocation and no foul play was suspected.
The incident comes just a week after another 18-year-old boy was murdered after being caught cheating with a 28-year-old married woman in Swaziland.
Sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the woman was identified as Simangele Alice Ndzabandzaba and she operates a small restaurant at Mbasheni, Swaziland.
“The woman, who many are blaming for the death of Mlandvo Dlamini, is originally from Siteki. She has a seven-year-old child. The father of the child and murder suspect Zakhele Ndlela would leave both his wife and child for weeks at a time to work as a truck driver in Siteki. It is believed that while the husband was away, his wife would then pursue her relationship with the teenager in the presence of her daughter,” said the highly credible source.
