A 47-YEAR-OLD man of Lusaka’s Garden House area has been apprehended and detained in police custody for having attempted to murder his wife who had just returned from Kenya on Sunday.
Zambia police public relations officer Esther Katongo confirmed the development to the Sun in a statement.
Ms Katongo said Kenneth Taguta picked a quarrel with his wife Lillian Kasalika, 45 after fetching her from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA) on her return from Nairobi.
It is alleged that as their quarrel heated up Taguta opened the front passenger’s door and pushed her out from the moving vehicle near the Research Institute and she landed on the tarmac with the head.
Ms Katongo said Ms Kasalika sustained multiple injuries and became unconscious and was rushed to Levy Mwanawasa Hospital where she was still admitted for medication.
“After picking her and on their way on the Airport Road, the couple who were in a company of their 14-year- old daughter picked up a quarrel and the husband pushed her out from the moving vehicle,” said Ms Katongo
She said the matter was reported to Police at KKIA around 11:05 hours.
Ms Katongo said Ms Kasalika was still bleeding through the nose and was unable to talk.
