Chibanja West Ward councilor beaten to death in Mzuzu

 Mzuzu, September 12: Councillor for Chibanja West Ward in Mzuzu City has been beaten to death after he was caught red handed with somebody’s divorced wife in Chibanja Township in Mzuzu.

Charles Nyirongo, who won the May 20 tripartite election on People’s Party (PP) ticket, is reported to have been beaten to death Wednesday around 8:00 O`clock in the evening.

Speaking in an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana), the uncle to the deceased, Tedson Mtegha, said late Charles Nyirongo was pronounced dead in the early hours of Thursday at Mzuzu Central Hospital after losing a lot of blood.

According to Mtegha, Nyirongo sustained severe injuries in the back and head that left him unconscious before he was rushed to the hospital.

“ We are deeply shocked with his death, the man was development minded even before he became a Ward Councillor, he has done a lot in this area,” said Mtegha.

Mtegha disclosed that the late Nyirongo had been on secret relationship with Bellita Mbewe for some months after it was allegedly reported that she and her husband, Sangwani Kapindanani Chirambo, had divorced.

The two had one child with each other and according to reports, Chirambo was still relating with his former wife Bellita Mbewe.

On the day of his fate, Councillor Nyirongo was at Mbewe’s house where the divorced husband found him after being tipped. The latter got angry and started beating the deceased severely despite the fact that he and Bellita Mbewe (who had harboured the deceased), had divorced.
