Retired Top Police Officer Commits Suicide

Retired Top Police Officer Commits Suicide

A retired senior police officer in Bulawayo allegedly committed suicide by gulping a poisonous substance and his body was discovered in his car by his stepdaughter on Sunday morning.

The deceased, Walter Frank Ebinerng (62), was a former member of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) and had attained the rank of Chief Inspector when he retired.

It is alleged that before he committed suicide, Ebinerng was heard by his stepdaughter Awakhiwe Geraldino Mdlongwa (21) together with her young brother, Nkanyiso Mdlongwa (16), saying he wanted to kill himself.

CITE reported police sources as saying Ebinerng did not reveal the reason why he wanted to end his life. Said a source:

The two (Awakhiwe Mdlongwa and Nkanyiso Mdlongwa) heard Walter saying he was going to commit suicide but did not reveal the cause.

After overhearing what the deceased had stated Awakhiwe, advised her mother, Sikhathele Ebinerng.

The family reportedly retired to bed just after midnight and left the deceased seated inside his car.

The following morning, Ebinerng’s wife left for Filabusi but did not check for her husband’s whereabouts.

At around 3.20 PM, that same day, she received a phone call from her daughter that he was unconscious in his car. Said the police sources:

Sikhathele instructed the informant to call Netstar ambulance who then attended the scene and observed that Walter was already dead.

The team leader of Netstar ambulance, Flora Nicola Tshuma, together with the informant proceeded to ZRP QueensPark and made a report.

The police attended the scene and conducted searches on the body.

They found two cellphones, a Samsung and an ITEL phone, a black wallet with a national identity and defaced police ID.

The police officers also recovered an empty 200ML red bottle (faded) from the bin which is suspected to be the one which had poison.

Ebinerng’s body was ferried to the United Bulawayo Hospitals mortuary for a post-mortem. | CITE

Hmmm the wife, the wife, the wife. Panenyaya apa. Leaving yo beloved husband with a troubled soul alone in the car who was contemplating suicide and next morning u just leave home without even checking on him. Even if all was well do u just go away like that without even a gud bye to yo dear one.

I agree with you guys she was told by her daughter that her husband is had said he wanted to commit suicide and she went to sleep without checking with him. How can you sleep leaving someone in that state of mind in a car at night. The wife should be accountable for her husband's death

Walter, you were too strong minded to take your own life. I will always cherish the days we worked together as young and happy Patrol Officers in Gweru. It didn't have to end that way bro. RIP

In my view, that was no suicide but murder!
How does the wife leave her hubby seated in a car & retire for bed, then you sleep all night without checking on your partner and wake up taking a journey without trying to find you man?
She killed him if he was a drunkered she puti poison in his beer.
