    The man in question Philip Zulu was put to rest on the same day with his wife. He committed suicide the very day he killed his wife. He was 52 years.

    Let her soul rest in peace. But female teachers, learn from this. You should know the person you are getting married to. And , you should respect marriage. Marriage is different from work. Mwefimbusa twafweni inkashi shesu shalapwa. Icilelenga sometimes is lack if traditional values.

    Its very sad that Grace died such a painful death and my heart goes to the family and loved ones.
    The thing is, nowadays African women takes marriage as a degree qualification and endure the abuse from their husbands to the point of death so that they can be seen that the are married.
    I am sure Grace suffered abuse for a long time in the hands of her abusive husband without making a move. Abuse and violence starts bit by bit until the abuser takes it to another level which is dangerous. Also women are not taking time to learn their prospective husband background history before marriage. As long as the man can dress well, they qualify him as a husband material, what people should know is, most men in Zambia are dependent on tugiligili such that their brain does not function properly as a result, they cannot hold a healthy debate with their wives rather than violence to shut the innocent wife up.
    Women, learn to be independent by doing something or selling malasha so that you can run when the husband is unreasonable.
    You don’t need to die for a man, a man will not die for a woman, they will marry the following day of your burial.
    Marriage is not a qualification, academic college, university will give you a qualification to be independent and get a job.
    Make sure you investigate your boyfriend history before committing yourself. You may be dealing with a serial killer or an alcoholic.
    Confide in your loved ones when things are going wrong so that the abuser knows that other people knows of his character.
    In conclusion:
    May the soul of grace rest in peace.
    I pray that phillip is arrested as soon as possible, I have faith in the Zambia police and thev will deal with him as he is a dangerous man who fights women with weapon instead of doing farming as Zambia has so much land.
