Man kills wife, dumps her on mountain

Police have arrested a Macheke man for gruesomely murdering his wife after a domestic dispute.


Shingirai Chitate (60) fatally assaulted his wife, whose body was later found dumped on top of a nearby mountain.


“The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) confirms the arrest of Shingirai Chitate (60) who fatally assaulted his wife, Joyce Mangani (50) with a belt after a domestic dispute on October 14, at Mount Pleasant Farm, Machecke.


“The victim was found dead on top of a mountain near the farm on October 16, 2021,” police said.


Meanwhile, police in Dzivarasekwa are investigating a case of concealment of birth, in which a foetus was found on top of litter at a dumping site in Tynwald South, Harare.


In a similar but unrelated case, police said they are also appealing for information that may lead to the arrest of Joyce Chinyama (24), who allegedly dumped a newborn baby boy on October 17 at Budiriro Poly Clinic in Harare, where she was admitted.
