Two men who separated from their wives have committed suicide after a quarrel with their spouses in Lilongwe.

The two took their own lives in separate incidents over the weekend in Traditional Authorities Chadza and Kalolo.

Sub Inspector Foster Benjamin, Deputy PRO for Lilongwe Station said in the first incident, which occurred at Nsampha Village in T/A Chadza, 27-year old Luka Jeminali killed himself soon after arguing with his wife whom he had just separated from.

On the same day, 43-year old Chinkamawa Nsundwe hanged himself with a mosquito net in his house at Chakuzamutu Village in T/A Kalolo.

Msundwe went back to his wife whom he had separated with and quarreled with her.

On his return home, he terminated his life.

Namitete Police detectives took the dead body to Kamuzu Central Hospital for postmortem.

Results indicated that Msundwe had died from suffocation secondary to strangulation.

Police have since urged those severely depressed along familial lines to consult marriage counsellors and not be suicidal.
