Blantyre, Malawi — David Minyatso holds the voter registration card of his late wife, Selina.
The last time he saw her, she had just found out she was pregnant with their fourth child.
"She told me she was feeling symptoms of pregnancy. She left for her home village two days later to visit her parents," 36-year-old Minyatso said, standing in the doorway of their thatched-roof home in Kaseleka village, his daughters playing in the dirt yard outside.
