“On December 31, 2022, Police in Bulawayo acted on a tip-off and arrested Baron Chiguru aged 28 and his wife Sheila Ndlovu aged 29, who were employed as domestic workers at a plot in Inyathi, for allegedly killing their employer, Geneva Sibanda aged 62 and stealing the victim’s property comprising, a Nissan X-Trail vehicle, compressor, lawn mower, refrigerator, four plate electric stove, two cellphones, two firearms, a Targa .32 pistol and a 303 riffle with a magazine of seven rounds.
