Mangochi Police Station Public Relations Officer Amina Tepani Daudi has identified the man as Bashir Makunganya from Michesi Village in the area of Traditional Authority Mponda in Mangochi.
The incident happened on December 7, 2022 at Michesi Village, Traditional Authority Mponda in Mangochi.
According to Saudi , Makunganya was on 3-year old courtship with his girlfriend and the two promised to marry each other.
“Last week, the love birds quarrelled after another man who is in South Africa posted the so called girlfriend on Facebook with a love captioned message which prompted him to confront the guy only to be slapped with bitter news that the man was processing for travelling arrangements in order to stay with her in RSA,” Daudi says.
She adds,” On December 5, 2022 Makunganya confronted his girlfriend’s parents about the issue where he was rejected and the parents opted to marry off their daughter to the man in RSA.
Two days later, Makunganya was found dead by her mother who reported the issue to Koche Police Unit.”
Police visited the scene where they found a 4 paged suicide note in which he illustrated that he tried his best to stay stronger but would not bear seeing his girlfriend in the hands of another man hence terminated his own life.
