Somalian in court for poisoning husbandBy Elias Banda on 14 Mar 2017
A 23-year-old Somalian woman charged with murder for allegedly poisoning her husband has appeared in the Lusaka Magistrates Court.
Amina Muhammed, a housewife of Lusaka’s Emmasdale appeared before chief resident magistrate Kenneth Mulife today.
Allegations are that on March 2, 2017 in Lusaka, Muhammed killed her husband Osman Mohammed Adan.
Magistrate Mulife could however not explain the charge because the accused person was not conversant with English.
The matter was adjourned to March 16 to prepare a Somalian interpreter.
Facts on police records indicate that Muhammed told police officers that her husband committed suicide using a chitenge material following a marital dispute.
She also told police officers that her husband even refused to eat the food that she had prepared for breakfast adding that he threw the bread, baked beans and bananas through the window.
But a police officer who rushed to the crime scene after the brother to the deceased reported the matter to police stated that he found Adan’s body of lying on the floor in the matrimonial bedroom facing upwards and that his neck was intact.
The officer wondered how a person who had committed suicide would be lying on the floor instead of hanging.
Further, the police report revealed that the officer picked the food that was thrown and apprehended Muhammed.
And a postmortem report filed in court showed that the deceased died of food poisoning.
As she left the court room, Muhammed cried after noticing that journalists were filming her.Related Items
