A Zambian man, identified as Nathan Mithi, has taken his own life over claims of infidelity on the part of his wife, Sabby Phiri.
Mithi, a member of the Ghetto Link, a prominent Zambian music group, passed away just a few days ago and was laid to rest on Thursday, December 14, 2023.
In a lengthy suicide note shared on his Facebook wall, Mithi opened up about the struggles in his marriage to Sabby, making accusations of infidelity, deception, and a pursuit of a luxurious lifestyle.
He began the post,
“If you are seeing this then I am probably DEAD! Ati ‘I need space’ kansi ah nyegesa kunja (however, she is sleeping around). Don’t Skip but learn from me. sabby you are the reason for my death.”
He recounted how he caught his wife sleeping with other men on their matrimonial bed, including a young relative and a landlord, whom he openly insulted in his post.
He also cited 15 instances he could remember of his wife allegedly being unfaithful, mentioning encounters with a relative and fellow musician, General Kanene, as well as Government spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa.
Mithi, who got married to his wife in 2012, opened up about marrying for looks and warned his fellow men against going for looks, and instead marry for character.
“Never marry a woman because of her looks but marry her for who she is. The first mistake I made with Sabby,” He said.
“Looks aren’t everything in a relationship, but they do matter. A relationship based on physical appearance often has an expiration date.”
Speaking further, he accused his wife of constantly seeking relationships outside their marriage, which broke his heart and ultimately led to his decision to commit suicide.
“Why have i killed my self? I did it because I truly loved her from the bottom of my heart. My heart could not take the nonsense that she is into.”
“But at the same time it was true love for me. I have lost hope in love, I only see one woman in my life and that is her.
Therefore! if I can’t have her, then let me rest in peace,” Mithi wrote.
He also revealed he has left Sabby with five children, “three of my own and two from two different fathers. I am not even sure if they are my kids. Chalo ichi.”
“Anyway, enjoy your life, party harder while you still can, your time is coming sooner! Dodx will never take you anywhere boi. Relax yourself,” he advised the wife.
