26 MARCH 2021

The Zimbabwe Republic Police expresses concern over the increase in murder cases emanating from domestic violence incidences particularly by couples.

On 28th February 2021 in Budiriro, Harare, Mcdonald Chiveto had a dispute with his wife, Sharon Munhenga (22) and chased her away from home. She did not comply with the order and was seriously assaulted by the suspect with fists and open hands all over the body. The victim went to Sally Mugabe Hospital for medication and returned home. Her condition deteriorated and later died on 19 March 2021. Police have since arrested the suspect and investigations are in progress.

In a related case, on 25 March 2021 in Ruvimbo, Phase 1 Chinhoyi, Nelson Nhunge (55) had an argument with his wife, Faith Mhlanga (36) over food. The suspect struck the wife with a pot once on the left eye and stabbed her with a knife several times on the neck and chest leading to her death. Police have arrested the suspect and body is awaiting post mortem at Chinhoyi Hospital.

Meanwhile, Police are investigating a suspected murder case where a body of an unidentified woman was found dead in a pool of blood on 25th March 2021 at Mukuvisi River near Seke Fly Over, Harare.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police urges members of the public to shun violence and solve disputes amicably. Police condemn domestic violence in the strongest terms and people should not take the law into their hands but report to law enforcement agencies or approach third parties for assistance to resolve conflicts.
