She was immediately rushed to Norton Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries however she fingered her ex husband as the attacker before she died.

Her relatives and police detectives stormed her ex husband Nhamo Mafundera (50)’s place at house number 3902, Nharira suburb, in the town where he was arrested.

Nhamo was reportedly apprehended whilst making attempts to flee to South Africa. He is reportedly in police custody now and he was almost attacked by an angry mob baying for justice.

Bertha’s family are quite popular as they own Journeyman Sports Bar, a joint in Katanga suburb.
