Shurugwi Man’s Negligence Of Explosives Claims Wife’s Life.
In a very sad update, a Shurugwi man’s negligence of explosives led to the death of his 21-year-old wife leaving a newborn child without a mother.
It is reported by a local publication Masvingo Mirror that this horrific incident occurred on 5 January. 35-year-old Blessing Ndlovu of Magakooshla in Shurugwi who is into mining brought some explosives home.
Ndlovu is alleged to have left the explosives unsecured when he left for work in the morning, leaving behind his wife, 21-year-old Tsitsi Makasi, and the couple’s newborn baby.
It is not yet clear what transpired later on in the day which could have caused the explosives to go off. However, at around 9 pm that evening, neighbours report that they saw smoke coming from the house followed by screaming.
A short while later, there was a huge explosion that destroyed half of the house. The neighbours managed to rescue the newborn baby but were not able to save Alice Makasi, who unfortunately died at the scene.
A search of the destroyed house revealed that Ndlovu was in possession of 10 caped fuses, 90 emulates, and a superpower code.
Ndlovu was arrested for negligently causing the death of his wife. He recently appeared before Shurugwi Magistrate Sithabile Zungula to answer to a count of culpable homicide and a count of illegal possession of explosives without a valid license and was remanded to February 12, 2021.
