A 17-year old boy Chikumbutso Matalala, from Kwamanje Village has been arrested after confessing that he stabbed his mother four times and then buried her in the backyard.
“She was alive when I buried her, I could see her eyes looking straight into mine but I had no choice but to bury her, I wanted to hide the crime. I didn’t want to get arrested because I knew I had to take care of my young siblings!” Chikumbutso said to the police.
“My mother deserved to die the worst death ever, in fact she didn’t even deserve to be called a mother. She was a monster, a cheating, abusive monster. I don’t regret what I did, it was the right thing to do.” He added.
“Chikumbutso confessed to the murder at Soche police station on Friday afternoon. His mother was exhumed from the shallow grave the very same day and was given a proper burial on Saturday” The police reported to News watch Reviews.
The teenager allegedly stabbed his mother four times on the stomach last week Monday night when his father was away on duty and his siblings were sleeping. He then sneaked out in the middle of the night and buried her at the backyard.
Chikumbutso claims his mother was the worst cheater in the world and he hated her for cheating on their father, the man who did everything in his power to give them a better life. Chikumbutso also claims she was abusive to them.
“I’m glad I killed that monster, the world is far much better without her,” The teenager reported to News Watch Reviews in an interview there in prison.
The police are still investigating the issue as they suspect the teenager is somehow trying to take someone’s crime.
