20-year-old woman sentenced to 17 years imprisonment with hard labour for pouring hot water on her husband



Mangochi Senior Resident Magistrate Court in Malawi, on Wednesday, September 15, sentenced a 20-year-old woman to 17 years imprisonment with hard labour for pouring hot water on her husband over financial issues.



The court heard through state Prosecutor Sub Inspector, Blessings Madikhula that the victim, Wilson Chimenya, 34, married the convict, Nunu Saidi last year and he moved her into his house with three kids from her previous marriage.







In July 2021, they temporarily separated for reasons best known to themselves and the convict left her matrimonial home.



Madikhula added that the woman went back to her house on August 28, 2021 and asked the victim for financial support for the initiation ceremony of her children.



The victim refused to help claiming the children were not his biological children, a thing which angered the wife.Latest Post
