A THIRTY-EIGHT-YEAR-OLD housewife in Chipata District has committed suicide following a dispute with her husband.

Linead Nkhata of Kapala Farms on Monday allegedly hanged herself in a house around 17:00 hours after some differences with her husband.

Eastern Province Police chief Grace Chipalila and an eyewitness, Timothy Phiri confirmed this in separate interviews yesterday in Chipata.

Ms Chipalila said a team of Police officers had been dispatched to the scene to investigate the matter.

“I have just dispatched my officers who have gone to find out what really transpired and it is too early to determine why she committed suicide until I receive a report,” she said.

But Mr Phiri said the deceased died after a dispute with her husband.
