Cruel World! Man Axed Wife To Death Over Infidelity
The man(Dube) was arrested on Tuesday last week and arraigned before the court on Monday to answer to a charge of murder.Vincent Dube suspected that his wife, Memory Nobukhosi Ndlovu, was having an affair with a local teacher, Mr David Nunu. The court heard that Dube started suspecting that his wife was cheating on him when the teacher sent a pupil from the school with a message that Ndlovu should visit him at the school. A misunderstanding ensued between Dube and his wife until an uncle intervened then.
It is alleged that he slapped her with an open hand once across the face before striking her twice at the back of the head with the axe. Ndlovu fell to the ground and died on the spot and Dube left the scene leaving the axe still stuck on the head.Ndlovu's body was taken to the United Bulawayo Hospitals for postmortem. The court heard that Dube fled from his homestead to an unknown destination.
May God forgive us all in this Cruel World......................................
