    Too bad that we have continued losing people through deaths caused by martial disputes.
    I would like to urge all those in marriage’s to to be mature enough in resolving such issues in the manner that will not even lead to loss of life,and I will repeat talking about this,”If u know you are not fully mentally matured,please don’t dare to marry” because marriage is described as a small or simple prison,so this depicts that marriage is only for the mentally normally people, people who are strong in mind.
    However, I urge the Zambia police to do their job diligently, and bring the culprit to book,and this must serve as a lesson to those who are still in relationship’s, married people,and of course not forgetting those that would want to go into marriage’s to emulate some lessons from such happenings, and try to do the right thing.
