A rampaging husband mercilessly assaulted his wife to death in Harare on Sunday after suspecting her of adultery.
The incident in question took place in Budiriro.
Infuriated husband Tinotenda Gudo, 34, beat Tisha Susan Munemo, 24, with wooden rods and kicked her all over the body till she passed away.
According to H Metro, Susan’s body was then carried into a toilet.
Two of Tinotenda’s friends were there when he attacked Susan.
Tinotenda was arrested when his tenants called the police.
Numerous Budiriro locals gathered at the scene of the incident yesterday as the police took away the alleged killer for further investigation.
“We didn’t know that Susan had relatives considering the life she has been living under the mercy of Tinotenda,” said one of the neighbours.
“She was forced to pack her belongings several times and even slept outside the house at times.
“We tried in vain to convince her to lodge a report against her husband because of the torture she was subjected to nearly every week.
“Kuponda kwaakazomuita uku kwaitova kupedzesa nyama yakanga yaibva nekurohwa.”
The neighbour added: “We were awoken by the noise and the dragging of the body into the toilet.
“Maybe, Susan took pride in being the wife of a landlord but, hey, it was unbearable, not worth such brutality.
“We want police to arrest Sam and Chitungwiza (Tinotenda’s friends) because they were in the room when Tinotenda assaulted Susan.
“Vakarega achirohwa zvekudaro nekutya kunyimwa mutoriro wavanonwira mumba make imomo.
“Tinotenda has been clashing with Susan accusing her of cheating him.”
Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza, confirmed the arrest of Tinotenda saying he is expected to appear in court today.
“Police arrested a Budiriro man for murder,” said Insp Chakanza.
“The suspect was reported to have assaulted the now deceased accusing her of infidelity.
“She was questioned over a man believed to have been seen by the suspect standing close to their house.
“The now deceased said she didn’t know the man and was assaulted.”
Tinotenda and Susan were yet to be blessed with children.
