Ascot shooting victim named

THE WOMAN who was shot dead during a robbery at Liquor Supplies at Ascot Shopping Centre in Bulawayo on Saturday has been identified with her family saying she did not deserve to die in such a ruthless manner.

Thandolwenkosi Dube (22) from Cowdray Park suburb was shot twice in the head and died instantly as robbers raided the liquor outlet where she was a cashier.

The robbers are yet to be arrested as police are still conducting investigations.

A Chronicle news crew visited Dube’s home where mourners are gathered and her relatives said they were at a loss for words as they were finding it difficult to accept that she was dead.

They said while death is always difficult to accept, hers was even worse as they expected her to return home in one piece and probably hug her minor child who is in Grade Zero.

They said her death had robbed her minor child of a mother.

Her niece Ms Gugulabazali Dube said just like her name Thandolwenkosi, the deceased was so loving and would never quarrel with anyone.
