Jan 9, 2013 – Woman Arrested For Beating Her Husband To Death In Harare, Zimbabwe
In Harare, Zimbabwe, a 24-year-old wife named Talent Makonde is now in court facing murder charges. She was alleged to have sent her husband (names witheld) to the great beyond after the two of them had a domestic fight (sounds like a wild one to me o).
The woman has been charged to court with Shelton Bhiya, 25, who had joined the scuffle while trying to stop the fight (Omo, na to dey careful when stopping fight now o!). The accused was said to have met her late hubby at the Reuben Shopping Center in Epworth and the two of them left for home together. On the way home, an argument ensued and in the process, Talent was said to have started assaulting her husband.
Bhiya, who was passing by, tried to stop the fight. The court learnt that police officers arrived the scene and arrested the husband who was later detained. He collapsed by the next morning at the police station before he could give any statement. He was rushed to the Parirenyatwa Hospital where he gave up the ghost.
Autopsy examination later revealed that he had died from a haemorrhage in the brain suffered during the beating from his wife. Both suspects have been remanded in custody till the 21st of January, and have been told to apply to the High Court should they need a bail considering the gravity of their offence.
