A 28-year-old man identified as Savior Katiyo has committed suicide after brutally killing his wife in Chilanga district, Lusaka.
Savior took his own life by hanging after savagely slaughtering his wife, Susan Moono on Saturday, January 2, 2021.
The police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Saturday, said Police visited the scene of crime and found the body of Susan with multiple cuts on both hands, on her back and abdomen with intestines protruding and human bite marks on the shoulder, chest and on both hands.
“The body was discovered lying halfway on the mattress while the body of the suspect was found hugging in the corner of the room with human bites on both hands, chest, shoulder and on the back,” Katongo revealed.
A knife suspected to have been used in the act with blood stains has been recovered from a one-roomed house owned by a Mathews Muwowo where Katiyo had moved to stay following a marital dispute. She added.
“It is alleged that Saviour Katiyo had moved from his matrimonial home and was staying at Muwowo’s house where the wife followed and seem to have had an altercation,” explained Katongo.
Katongo urged couples to always find amicable ways of sorting out their marital disputes as opposed to violent means.
