The villagers notified the authorities who later went to the scene and found his family.
The parents to the deceased admitted to the authorities that the day Mphatso went missing they had a quarrel with him on issues concerning his fiance whom he intended to marry this year. “Apparently the finance who is said to be a chewa was not the ideal wife for Mphatso said Mpatso’s father who is a Tumbuka.
The parents had already chosen a wife for him and were not going to accept the woman Mphatso had chosen.
