Shocker! Man Beats Girlfriend To Death Over Cheating Allegations

A man from Buhera, identified as Shadreck Murimi, has been arrested by police for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Besta Zamba of Denhera village after accusing her of cheating on him with another man.

The jilted man allegedly went out of control with anger and bashed his girlfriend to death for having an extramarital affair.

Shadreck Murimi of Bwanya village under chief Makoni was arrested after police received a report concerning the death of his girlfriend.

The Manicaland provincial police spokesperson Inspector Luxson Chananda confirmed the tragic incident which happened on June 6, this year, at Munodamafaro bottle store.

The police report stated that at 1700hrs on the day of the incident, Murimi and Zamba were drinking beer at Munodamafaro bottle store when the man accused the woman of cheating with other men.

An argument ensued between the two resulting in Murimi kicking Zamba on the forehead. 

After the attack, Zamba allegedly fell down and started bleeding profusely.

Murimi was stopped by other patrons from further attacking  Zamba.

It is alleged that at around 2200hrs whilst on their way home Murimi started attacking Zamba again with a stick.

Passersby tried to stop the fight but yielded to nothing because Murimi had become so violent.

Zamba was found dead the following morning along the same footpath where the incident had occurred.

A police report was made leading to the arrest of the deceased’s boyfriend, Murimi.


In a similar incident, police have arrested a 31-year-old pharmacy technician at Nkayi District Hospital in Matabeleland North province for allegedly murdering his wife after he soaked her head and face with methylated spirit before setting her on fire.



The suspect, Vusumuzi Ncube was arrested on Monday following investigations carried out by police over the death of his wife, Letwin Gotido, aged 34 sometime in March, after the couple had a domestic dispute. 


According to reports, the couple was staying together with their three children and a niece at Nkayi District Hospital Quarters. 


The accused person has been remanded into police custody and assisting police with investigations.
