A  37 year old man of Nakonde district in Muchinga Province has committed suicide.

Muchinga Province Police Deputy Commissioner Bonny Kapeso confirmed this to the Zambia News and information Service (ZANIS) in Nakonde April 16th.

Mr Kapeso said Samuel Sinyangwe committed suicide after he murdered his wife over the weekend.

He said Sinyangwe was found dead in his house in Nakonde and a note was found on the scene where he acknowledged taking away his life because of what he had done to his wife.

The Commissioner said an empty sachet of unidentified medicine was found on the scene and his body has since been taken to the mortuary waiting to be buried.


  1. Whatever the causes of suicide, he had to do without killing his wife. This is pure selfishness because these children need their mother.
