A 47 year old woman identified as Jestina Nyirongo on Wednesday shocked her residents of Chivunanguma village in the area of Traditional Authority Mthwalo in Mzimba when she was found hanging in a tree at Nkholongo forest in Mzuzu.

According to Mzuzu Deputy police relations officer, Cecilia Mfune said on June 21, 2016, she went to the nearby village where there was a funeral ceremony. At around 12 midnight she left the funeral place and went to unknown destination.

“She was at the funeral just close to where she was residing. After disappearing, her husband informed his relatives who started searching and she was found hanging dead in the forest on June 22, 2016. The forest is just 3 km away from her house”, said Cecilia.

Reasons as to why she prompted to end her life are not yet established as police investigations are still underway.

Postmortem conducted at Mzuzu Central  hospital revealed that death was due to strangulation.

Malawi Police are urging the general public not to end their lives through strangulation but they should resolve their issues peacefully.

“As Police, we are therefore urging members of the general public to solve their family issues peacefully or visit Victim support unit where they will meet counsellors because committing suicide is not a remedy to any problem one might encounter”, said Cecilia.
