Nyaminyami Festival Ends In Tragedy As Jealous Woman Kills Ex-Boyfriend
There were tragic scenes after a female thigh vendor stabbed her ex-boyfriend to death for publicly showing affection for another woman at the 2022 edition of Kariba’s Nyaminyami Festival.
The incident happened at Lake Harvest Sports Arena around 3 am.
The accused Sibongile Svaibu, 32, has since been arrested for the murder of Keith Kadziyanike, 34.
According to sources who spoke to a local publication New Zimbabwe, the jealous suspect confronted estranged boyfriend Kadziyanike after spotting him with another woman at the show.
It is alleged that Kadziyanike refused to accept the accused person’s decision to terminate their affair because he was failing to meet her financial needs.
Further allegations are that Kadziyanike was in the habit of stalking his former lover and would get into violent tantrums each time he found her with ‘clients.’
On the fateful day, Kadziyanike was in the company of a woman at the show and the accused person thought she would teach him a lesson.
“Sibo started protesting why the now-deceased constantly stalked and disturb her sex work, but unfairly and freely engaged in affairs with other women,” said a source.
A misunderstanding ensued, resulting in Kadziyanike bolting from the scene with the accused person who was armed with a broken beer bottle in hot pursuit.
She caught up with Kadziyanike and stabbed him in the jugular vein on the neck.
He started bleeding profusely and was rushed to a nearby clinic, before referral to Kariba District Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
