A HOUSEWIFE of Mkushi has allegedly killed her husband using a pounding stick after differing over a cellular phone.

According to police, the incident happened on Thursday last week after the deceased demanded to know where the woman, who is 20 years old, had taken her mobile phone and accused her of flirting with other men.
Central Province Commissioner of police Standwell Lungu said the incident occurred in Kasota area and identified the deceased as Shadreck Musonda Mwape, who died on Sunday, while the accused is Adess Phiri.
Mr Lungu said the victim sustained a deep cut on his head and was briefly admitted to Mkushi District Hospital where he died.
He said the suspect had taken her phone for charging but that did not please the husband, and a fight erupted.
“I can confirm that we have picked up a woman who is alleged to have beaten her husband using a pounding stick; the body is in the hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem,” he said.
Meanwhile, a seven-year-old girl of Makululu Township in Kabwe has allegedly been defiled by a 14-year-old boy of the same area.
Mr Lungu said the incident happened on Thursday last week. The juvenile offender has since been arrested and charged with defilement.
And a 47-year-old man of Chilindila village in Chipata District has been murdered over a debt of K3.
The incident occurred on Thursday last week when Yotam Banda hit George Phiri with a bottle.
Police spokesperson Rae Hamoonga said in a statement in Lusaka yesterday that Mr Phiri owed Banda K3 and when the suspect went to collect it, he was angered and hit the colleague with a bottle.
“It is alleged that on the material date at around 16:00 hours, the victim was visited by the suspect who owed him a K3 and that was when he demanded to be given back his money but was angered and later hit him with a bottle,” Mr Hamoonga said.
