Man stabs wife with panga knife for refusing sex

11 February 2016, 19:24

Lagos – A Malawian man has been sentenced to two years in prison with hard labour after he attacked his wife with a panga knife.

Nyasa Times reports that Blessings Tembo, 22, stabbed his wife Alinafe Yokoniya, 19, after she denied him his conjugal rights.

Tembo allegedly stabbed his wife in the head after she told him she was exhausted from her day's work.

"Tembo fled after injuring his wife. The wife was taken to Kamuzu Central hospital where she received treatment untill the 27th of January," Esther Mkwanda, the Kanengo Police spokesperson and Sub Inspector, said.

The case was tried in the Mkukula Magistrate’s Court in Dowa.

A similar case took place last year when another Malawian man, John Yasini, was convicted to 13 and half years in prison with hard labour after he beat his wife, Linda Phulani, 18, for allegedly cheating on him with another man.
