The death of Waheeda Bagus, a 25-year-old Malawian, has sent shock waves among citizens and has left many completely demoralised.
Bagus was shot by her husband on suspicion of infidelity.
News of her death has dominated Malawian online portals and some citizens have taken to social media particularly Facebook to mourn her.
Waheeda, who was a niece to Malawi’s Trade, Industry and Tourism Minister, Salim Bagus, was shot by her husband on December 15, 2019.
Reports confirm the young lady died from injuries sustained from gunshot wounds on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at Kamuzu Central Hospital.
Bagus’ condition became worse and there was a need to raise K40 million for specialized treatment in India.
Despite efforts from loved ones to save her life, she gave up the ghost and has since left them in complete distress.
After carrying out the dastardly act, Bagus’ husband, Mark William Phiri, attempted to escape in December but eventually handed himself over to Malawi Police.
Mark William Phiri was subsequently charged with attempted murder.
Some Malawians took to social media to share heart-breaking messages of condolences.
