Malawi: Teacher Hangs Himself in Mangochi After Quarrel With Wife

29 January 2020

A teacher at Majuni Primary School in Mangochi has hanged himself following a quarrel he allegedly picked with his wife, police have confirmed.

Males tend to use more violent suicide methods such as hanging.

The deceased has been identified as Sungeni Matinganya.

Mangochi Police Station spokesperson Rodrick Maida said in a statement that the wife left their matrimonial home on Sunday after the quarrel.

"When Matinganya did not show up at work on Monday, his wife went back to the house to check on him," he said.

She found him hanging on a rope from the roof.

A post-mortem conducted at Namwera Health Centre showed death was due to strangulation.
