Teacher admits chopping wife to death

A 33-YEAR-OLD teacher at Omelo Mumba Primary School in Katete who is charged with murdering his wife told the Chipata High Court on Wednesday that he committed the crime because he felt betrayed by a WhatsApp message he found on her phone.

Appearing before Lusaka-based High Court judge Mwamba Chanda was Tobias Mwale of Ibex Hill township who is charged with one count of murder.
Mwale allegedly chopped off the head of his wife, Mumba Kalaba, 26, a midwife at Kasama General Hospital. She had travelled to Ketete to visit him.
