Nathan Mithi, a Zambian musician, allegedly committed suicide after accusing his wife, Sabby Phiri, of infidelity.
Mithi, a member of Ghetto Link, a well-known music group in the country, was laid to rest on Thursday, December 14, 2023.
Mithi detailed the harrowing experiences of his marriage to Phiri in a lengthy suicide note published on Facebook, accusing her of infidelity, deception, and a desire for a lavish lifestyle.
“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 wrote.
He also described how he allegedly witnessed the wife having sex with other men on their marital bed, including a young boy related to him and a landlord whom he insulted in the post.
“Why have I killed myself? 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.
Mithi emphasized that he had 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 and party harder while you still can; your time is coming sooner! Dodx will never take you anywhere, Boi. Relax yourself,” he advised the wife.
