Late Professor Peter Mumba’s wife Annie Mumba has been remanded to Maula Prison for allegedly murdering her late husband.
Central Region Police publicist Alfred Chimthere said Annie, 51, is expected to appear in the High Court on August 31, 2020 for murder.
Annie was arrested after postmortem results conducted by two pathologists, Professor George Liomba and Dr. Charles Dzamalala of College of Medicine indicated that Professor Mumba died due to acute poisoning.
His family requested for the postmortem following his mysterious death in April this year.
Mumba was until his death a Professor of Chemistry at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) in Lilongwe.
Annie hails from Chituka Village, Traditional Authority Malengamzoma in Nkhata Bay District.
