In a shocking occurrence, Edward Chirombe, a Nyanga man, reportedly murdered his wife and three children ages 8, 12, and 14 before committing suicide by hanging.

The bodies were discovered by Mugomba Village inhabitants, who alerted the police.

Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, a police spokesperson, confirmed the occurrence and stated that investigations to determine the circumstances and motivation behind the heinous crime were ongoing.

Police have not determined when the event occurred.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police is investigating circumstances surrounding a heinous murder case in which Edward Chirombe (43) is suspected to have attacked to death, his wife Joyce Mashenu (40), two daughters aged 8 and 14, and son (12), before committing suicide, at a homestead at Ngavaseke Mugomba Village, Nyanga on an unknown date.

“The bodies of the victims were found by the police on 06th January 2023 after the police had received information that there were dead bodies lying in the hut and flat roofed bedroom, which were all locked from the outside with padlocks.

“The police broke the padlocks to gain entry into the hut and bedroom where the bodies of the victims were found with multiple deep cuts on the head,” Nyathi said in a statement.

The body of Chirombe’s wife was found lying on the bed in the couple’s bedroom, covered in blood while the bodies of the children were found in the hut.

Nyathi said Chirombe’s body was found hanging from a tree in the garden some 800 metres from the homestead.

“Investigations are in progress to ascertain the motive behind the callous murder,” said the police spokesperson while urging the public not to resort to violence in resolving domestic disputes.

The incident spotlights on the horrors of domestic violence in the country which has seen many cases of family murder.
