CHRISTMAS ended on a tragic note for a Malawian family when a toddler lost her life after her dad attacked her mum.
According to Nyasa Times, Chikumbutso Galu (30) from Galu village in southern Malawi lost his temper with his wife, Paula Devani (27) on Monday night because she couldn’t explain what happened to the money he had given her.
Nsanje Police Public relations officer, Sergeant Agnes Zalakoma is quoted in the story as saying: “After the quarrel, the husband picked up a panga and wanted to hit his wife with it. Unfortunately, the knife landed on the head of the daughter who sustained a big cut and later died.”
The post-mortem showed that the child died due to severe bleeding.
“We visited the scene and arrested the suspect who will be taken to court soon to answer murder charges,” said Zalakoma.
