Police in Murehwa have arrested a mentally challenged woman in connection with the murder of her mother.

The mother, Anasencia Rowesai (68) used to stay with her mentally challenged daughter, Isabel Maradza (47) in Magaya Village, Chief Mangwende in Murehwa. On May 3, Rowesai went to an unnamed destination to pick her daughter who had strayed owing to her mental condition.

Two days later and in the afternoon, Rowesai was seen at her homestead doing some laundry by her cousin, Christina Magama (55). Maradza was at home too. The next day, another villager, Norest Chimhanga passed through Rowesai’s homestead and noticed that the main door was broken. He became curious and went into the house to check what had happened.
