The killer, Masvimbo (26), is said to have waited outside the home for Orripah’s mother to leave for Kudzanayi market before he pounced on his unsuspecting ex-wife.

Distraught Gogo Hamundidi, who tried to assist her granddaughter, said the accused got into the house and grabbed the now deceased by the hand and started beating and dragging her outside the house where he allegedly stabbed her several times on the neck, abdomen, shoulders and back.

The shocked mother of the late Orrippah, Alice Mashayamombe said she got a phone call to come back home before she had reached the market and was shocked to see the body of her daughter lying in a pool of blood when she got home.

The suspect, Masvimbo is still at large and police are appealing to anyone with information on his whereabouts to report to the nearest police station.
