In Ngabu, Chikwawa, Malawi, a 27-year-old man named Mkwate Chimbizi has been arrested for the brutal murder of his wife.
The accused is alleged to have committed a horrifying act by mutilating his wife’s body, removing her breasts and genitalia, and ultimately beheading her.
The spokesperson for the South East Police Region, Edward Kabango, confirmed this tragic incident on June 9, 2023. Chimbizi suspected that his 23-year-old wife, Luwiza Leonard, was involved in an extramarital affair.
Chimbizi was apprehended on June 8 and cooperated with the authorities by revealing the burial site where he had hidden the decomposed head of the victim. The suspect discarded his wife’s genitalia and breasts in a pit latrine.
