Man Assaults Wife, Kills Her Lover

Man Assaults Wife, Kills Her Lover

Police have arrested Edward Mhishe (46) of Rambanepasi Village in Hwedza for allegedly killing his wife’s lover and assaulting his wife on Sunday night.

Mhishe was customarily married to Linda Garaba (32), but in April this year they separated and Garaba had to move out of their home to stay with her mother in Hwedza.

What transpired

It is alleged that on Sunday Mhishe heard that Garaba was in Bozho Village at her new boyfriend’s house and he went there and asked the boyfriend’s uncle, Samuel Mahupeta, to help him persuade his wife to come back home.

Mahupeta turned him down arguing that Ms Garaba was now dating his relative.

Mhishe then went to his mother-in-law where he begged her to talk to her daughter about solving their issue, however, she refused and referred him to their aunt.

On the same day around 7 pm, Mhishe went back to Mr Mahupeta’s home where he pleaded with her wife to go with him, but she refused, promising to follow later.

Around 9 pm on the same date, Garaba and her boyfriend Warikandwa left their uncle’s place and went to sleep. 

Mhishe went to Mr Warikandwa’s homestead around 10 pm while armed with a wooden hoe handle and attacked Warikandwa and Garaba.

Warikandwa died on the spot while Garaba, who was left unconscious had to be rushed to Sadza district hospital where her condition is said to be critical.

Police spokesperson for Mashonaland East Province Inspector Simon Chazovachiyi confirmed the assaults. Chazovachiyi said:

He then left and went to his mother-in-law’s homestead where he said to her “ndapedza maspots nemwana wenyu nechikomba chake” [I’ve dealt with your daughter and her lover].

After saying that, he then ran away heading for his village. His mother-in-law rushed to the now deceased’s homestead where she found the two lying in a pool of blood. She screamed for help and at the same time, her daughter gained consciousness, in a confused state.

Mhishe was arrested at a roadblock after the police were tipped of his whereabouts by members of the public.
