Gweru Bensam flats shooting: Lover Businessman kills suspected wife snatcher along with girlfriend


A prominent car dealer in Gweru, Peter Dube last night opened fire on four people, killing two and injuring the other two including his wife Nyasha Nharingo following a domestic dispute at their residence in the central business district.

In a sad and unusual development that occurred at Bensam Flats in Gweru, a local businessman Peter Dube (35) shot and killed his lovers’ suspected boyfriend along with his girlfriend leaving his second wife Nyasha Nharingo (31) and her sister Nyaradzo Nharingo (34) seriously injured.

The deceased man has only been identified as Shelton while his girlfriend has been identified as Gamuchirai Madungwe (30).

Dube accused Chinhango of having an affair with his wife Nyasha.

CommunityTalk has it on record that circumstances leading to the bloody shooting emanated from a dispute where Dube got wind that his wife, sister and the now two deceased had traveled to Masvingo to collect Nyaradzo’s passport without his knowledge.

“This did not go well with Dube since he was suspecting infidelity,” said a close friend to the couple.

“At around 2000hrs, Dube armed with an unknown type of firearm went to number 11 Bensam Flats Main Street where an argument ensued accusing his second wife of having an affair with Shelton.

“Dube then went downstairs and shot Shelton who was seated in the car once on the head and he is reported to have died instantly,” CommuTalk is further told.

Dube is reported to have gone upstairs where he met Shelton’s girlfriend, Madungwe and shot her on the chest and also reportedly died on the spot.

“He went back upstairs where he met Gamuchirai on the door and shot her on the chest and she died before proceeding to shoot Nyasha on the neck, also shooting Nyaradzo on the head and are battling for life at Gweru Provincial Hospital,” a friend further narrated.

Peter Dube’s wife, Nyasha Nharingo who together with her sister Nyaradzo (below) are battling for life at Gweru Provincial Hospital following the shooting in the early hours of today. The two’s father, Mr Bothwell Nharingo visited them in the hospital around 8 am and said Nyasha has two bullets in the head which are still to be removed while her sister Nyaradzo has a deep bullet wound in the neck, Their condition is said to be critical.
