Police in Choma at Shampande police post have arrested and charged Namukolo Maliki, 23, for murdering her Husband Muyuni Mwanajiti Mabbolobbolo, 35.

This was after police received a report of murder on July 14, 2023 at 15:45 hours.

The incident occurred on July 14, 2023 at around 13:00 hours in Shampande compound of Choma where Claudy Mwaanga, 43, of new Kalundu area reported that her young brother Muyuni Mwanajiti Mabbolobbolo of Shampande Compound was murdered by his wife Namukolo Maliki of the same abode after a marital dispute.

Zambia Police Service Spokesperson Rae Hamoonga tells Byta FM Zambia that the deceased sustained a deep cut on the chest as a knife is alleged to have been used in the act.

Hamoonga says brief facts of the matter are that the deceased had given the wife K490 to keep as transport money as they were supposed to shift to Sikalongo Secondary School where the deceased was transferred to work as a general worker from Shampande school.

He says around 06:00 hours, the deceased left home and came back around 13:00 hours and appeared to be drunk, demanding for the money from the wife who refused, forcing him to start beating the wife.

Hamoonga says a neighbour, Loveness Mulyokela, 33, heard the noise and rushed there where she got the couple’s 3 month old baby who was crying.

He says it was at this point that the deceased picked up a knife trying to stab the wife but the wife challenged him and stabbed him in the chest instead.

Hamoonga says police visited the scene of crime and recovered a knife allegedly used in the commission of the crime.

He says the body of the deceased has since been deposited in Choma General Hospital mortuary awaiting post-mortem and burial.
