A bigamous Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) officer allegedly stabbed his estranged wife 10 times, killing her on the spot.
The incident occurred in the Tinde area under Chief Pashu in Kamativi, where the victim came from.
Constable Bright Ndlovu (28) stabbed his wife Muchaneta Siziba (21) at her aunt’s homestead for allegedly refusing to reconcile with him.
Siziba had left their matrimonial home in Victoria Falls and fled to Kamativi after Ndlovu allegedly brought another woman to the matrimonial home last year.
Ndlovu followed Siziba to Kamativi last week Friday intending to beg her to return home and when she refused, he allegedly stabbed her times several times in the presence of her aunt Easter Dumbura Shoko.
He fled from the scene and was arrested on Saturday afternoon at Pashu shops where he had stopped to buy food when an alert policeman spotted him.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident.
