While many people believe Christmas to be a season of love, the same cannot be said about the story of this couple in Zimbabwe. A 23-year-old woman has been declared wanted over the brutal murder of her husband on Christmas eve.
According to reports, the tragic incidence occurred after Anesu Mafokosho and her husband, Vitalis Mudhumo returned from a Christmas shopping which they had done for their child. However, on their return, the couple soon had a fight which led to Mudhumo packing to leave the house.
Anesu’s younger sister who was in the house told the police that she heard the couple arguing outside the yard for about 45 minutes. The situation turned bloody when the wife axed the deceased three time on the neck.
Mafokosho immediately fled home after committing the offence and sent a text message to her sister telling her to go see what she had done in the bedroom.
On getting into the room, the younger sister found Vitalis bleeding and convulsing on the bed. Manicaland police spokesman Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa said Mudhumo’s body was taken to Mutare Provincial Hospital for post mortem.
According to local reports, the couple’s union was experiencing some problems and the unresolved marital dispute was threatening their marriage.
Mafokosho is currently on the run as police investigation has commenced.
