A 24-year-old woman Sinai Elisa has committed suicide by taking Actellic tablets in Mchinji after suspecting her husband of infidelity.
Facts are that the deceased who got married in July this year has been suspecting her husband of being in love affair with their tenant -an allegation the husband had denied.
On Tuesday September 8, this year at around 07:45 hours the husband received a call while at work that his wife was seriously sick after allegedly taking a poison pill.
