Prominent legal advisor attempts suicide by drinking poison at ex-wife’s residence

Rat poison

The prominent legal advisor attempts suicide by drinking poison at ex-wife’s residence. The Herald reports that Mr Promise Mariba visited Angeline Phiri last week Monday with the intention of seeing their two children but he was denied access.

A prominent legal advisor in Zvishavane was admitted to the hospital after consuming poison at his ex-wife’s residence after being denied access to children. A heated argument ensued with the in-laws saying Mariba had to pay lobola first for him to have access to the children. Witnesses said Mariba then threatened to hang himself at their gate but his in-laws did not take him serious.

He then left, briefly, and came back with rat poison but his ex-wife still did not bow to his demands. Mariba then consumed the poison and was rushed to the hospital.

Mariba told The Herald that he was now recovering from home after being discharged. He said: But I am ok now . . . they were refusing to release my kids, so there was no reason for me to live after spending a couple of months without seeing my own kids.

I did not want to take them for good, I only wanted to have access to my kids for the weekend but they have been refusing so I had to take that decision (drinking poison).

Mariba who is now a bachelor after three failed marriages claimed that the other two ex-wives released the kids but this other one was adamant he would not see them. He said:

I wanted to have my kids for a while and go to church with them for a prayer but she were conniving with her parent to deny me access to my own kids, so I went to buy some rat poison which I then consumed in front of them in protest.

He added that he over-reacted and is grateful to God that he is alive and that he had temporary access to his kids as they are already back with their mother.
