The old woman identified as Malita Joseph has been found dead.
Malita, a 75-year-old Malawian woman, reportedly died after drinking an excessive amount of locally brewed Malawian beer without eating any food.
According to Nyasa Times the elderly lady was found dead close to her home after she failed to return home for three days after visiting her local drinking hole in the area.
Police confirmed that the deceased had died after being missing for three days, adding that a postmortem performed at a local hospital showed that she had died due to excessive drinking without eating food.
Doctors say that drinking excessive amounts of alcohol without eating can indeed be fatal, as alcohol poisoning often leaves many severely ill and dehydrated.
