Jealous Man Carves Off Lover’s Ring Finger To Prevent Her From Getting Married Again.

Jealous Man chops off lover’s ring finger to prevent her from getting married again.

A jealous 27-year-old Mberengwa man has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment after chopping off his lover’s ring finger so that she will not wear any man’s ring.

According to a local publication, Masvingo Mirror Promise Moyo swore to Linnet Chihoro (25 years) that she was not going to put any man’s ring on her finger. Moyo announced this after Linnet had said her intentions to let go of the relationship. Promise took a machete and curve off Chihora’s ring finger in the claim that she must not wear any other man’s wedding ring.

Moyo appeared before Regional Magistrate Phathekile Msipa and was charged with attempted murder. The court also learned that after chopping his lover’s finger Moyo wanted to claim the palm of the hand he had finger chopped.

Prosecutor Talent Tadenyika said on February 10, 2020, Moyo, Chihora and a neighbour Sibusisiwe Nyoni went to see the village head to discuss issues concerning the strained relationship.

After the visit to the village head, the two arrived at the complainant’s home at around midnight. Upon arrival, the complainant went to her room but Moyo followed and pulled her out.

Moyo then took a machete from his waist which he used to strike the complainant several times on the hands, head and face with it.

Nyoni managed to stop Moyo from further assaulting the complainant and took her to the hospital.
A report was made leading to Moyo’s arrest.

Regional Magistrate Phathekile Msipa suspended three years of the sentence on condition of good behaviour.
