A JEALOUS Nyazura man assaulted his wife to death after accusing her of visiting his brother without his consent.

Police confirmed the incident saying the suspect was still at large.

Benard Raza, 33, from Raza village 9 under Chief Makoni, fatally assaulted his wife, Otilia, 32, after he got wind that she had visited his brother, Maxwell, without his permission.

Manicaland police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Luxon Chananda, said this did not go down well with the Raza who started assaulting his wife with a wooden plank.

Their domestic workers, Silas Kamhunga and Brian Kanzeke, heard the two exchanging words and went to the main house with the intention of mediating but they found the door locked from inside.

“The domestic workers pleaded with their employer to stop assaulting his wife and he agreed and opened the door,” Chananda said.

Raza was then seen leaving his homestead together with his wife. He came back later in the company of one Beterem Mupfumbu. He was carrying a blouse, ladies shoes and a red track bottom.

Raza then took one of the domestic workers to Chikobvore River where they found Otilia’s naked body on the river bank. She was wearing a bra and petticoats.

Mupfumbu reported the matter to Raza’s brother who in turn reported the case to the police.

“The accused fled from the scene and is still at large,” said Chananda, adding that people should learn to resolve their disputes amicably without resorting to violence.
