Man Digs Up Mother’s Grave, Claims She Was Buried Alive

A Mwenezi man has been arrested after he dug up his mother’s grave claiming that she was buried alive.

Moses Gumbo (32), from Sosonye Jingatira Village under Chief Murove in Mwenezi was found digging his mother’s grave recently.

He told his captors that his mother Miriam Magwegwe was appearing to him in his sleep and telling him that she was buried alive.

Gumbo said that his mother also instructed him to exhume her.

The mother died a few months back.

He appeared before Mwenezi Resident Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa on Friday last week facing a charge of violating graves.

Prosecutor Leyton Katsidzira told the court that on 3 October 2021, Gumbo proceeded to Magwegwe’s grave and dug it out to a depth of 1.4m.

Villagers who saw him reported the matter to the police leading to his arrest.

The court ordered him to be examined by two doctors as it is suspected that the accused is mentally challenged.
