Woman Stabs Husband For “Failing To Provide For The Family”

In a rather sad development, a Harare woman stabbed her husband several times with a kitchen knife accusing him of failing to take care of his family.

The man is reported to be battling for his life at Parirenyatwa Hospital.

The accused who was identified as Rejoice Marume(35) appeared before Harare Magistrate Barbra Mateko facing murder charges and was not asked to plead.

She was advised to apply for bail at the High Court. It is the State’s case that on February 2, a misunderstanding ensued between Marume and her husband after she accused him of failing to bring food on the table.

It is alleged that Marume stabbed her husband on the face, back, arm and leg.

In other news, iHarare has reported yet another very disturbing incident of ritual murder initiated by a relative.

Two men from Mwenezi were arrested after they brutally murdered a 6-year-old girl, and cut off her private parts intending to sell them in South Africa for ritual purposes.

One of the alleged murderers is the older brother of the victim’s father.

Taruziva Sithole (37) and Shackmore Dube (26), both from Chomutamba Village 3 under Chief Mazetese in Mwenezi West, were arrested on December 30 last year, barely 24 hours after committing the wicked crime.

Dube who is reported to be a frequent traveller to South Africa told Sithole that his boss in South Africa was looking for the private parts of a young girl. He went on to say that if they delivered the gruesome package, they would be handsomely rewarded with a car and a lot of cash.

After being enticed by Dube’s promises of how to get rich quickly, Sithole plotted to kill Irene Sithole, his younger brother’s daughter.
