A Marange man killed his wife in cold blood after catching her pants down having quality time with another man in the bushes last Tuesday.

Manicaland police spokesperson Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa confirmed the death of Rosemary Muchangidze (37) of Marahwa village, Chief Marange who was fatally assaulted by husband Oliver Mutafi (35) all over her body until she died.

Circumstances were that on May 7 at around 7 pm Muchangidze misled their children into believing that they were retiring to bed in separate rooms of the same house and sneaked out of the house to meet her lover for s_ex at a bushy area about 50 metres from her home.

On the same day at around 10 pm Mutafi arrived home and saw his wife with her boyfriend, Novel Chada, a diamond dealer in the bushy area. Mutafi severely assaulted his wife several times all over her body with a hard object causing serious injuries while Chada ran away.

Muchangidze screamed for help alerting neighbours, who rushed to the scene to investigate. Upon their arrival, they saw Mutafi assaulting Muchangidza.

Muchangidze had been seriously injured and was bleeding from the forehead.

Mutafi stopped assaulting her and ordered her to tell those gathered the reason why he was assaulting her.

She stated that her husband found her with Chada her boyfriend.

“As Mutafi started moving away, his wife stated that she had been badly injured and Mutafi replied saying that is what a prostitute deserves. Mutafi then went to his home where he broke into the house and took his wife’s money and went away,’’ said Insp Kakohwa.

She died minutes later before neighbours could take her to hospital.

Mutafi is still at large and investigations are in progress.
