A 22-year-old woman who died after being assaulted by her husband will be buried today at Zororo Memorial Park.
The suspect, Mcdonald Chiveto who had a dispute with his late wife Sharon Munhenga has since been arrested.
A close family member said Sharon will be buried today at Zororo Memorial Park.
“They were staying together and he had not paid lobola, so they paid part of the lobola money on Saturday.
“She left behind a baby aged one year nine months and the one in the womb was removed,” said the source.
On Friday, National Police Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Nyathi issued a statement regarding the incident.
“On February 28 in Budirio, Mcdonal Chiveto had a dispute with his wife Sharon Munhenga (22) and chased her away from home.
“She did not comply with the order and was seriously assaulted by the suspect with fists and open hands all over her body.
“The victim went to Sally Mugabe Hospital for medication and returned home.
“Her condition deteriorated and she later died on March 19.”
Added the Asst Comm Nyathi:
“Police have since arrested the suspect and investigations are in progress.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police urges members of the public to shun violence and solve disputes amicably.
“Police condemn domestic violence in the strongest terms and people should not take the law into their hands but report to law enforcement agencies or approach third parties for assistance to resolve conflicts.”
