A MACHEKE man recently committed suicide following an altercation with his wife over $15 which he had stolen from her and bought beer.

Mashonaland East acting police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Tendai Mwanza, said Kudakwashe Magurei, 32, of Nyazema Road in Macheke, stole money from his wife Ropafadzo Magurei before proceeding to the local bar where he bought beer.

On realising that her money was missing, Ropafadzo followed her husband and a misunderstanding ensued.

During the altercation, Ropafadzo instructed her daughter to call the police at Macheke police station which led Kudakwashe to flee into the bush.

He came back home the next morning smelling of some pesticide which he had consumed and the wife rushed him to Macheke Clinic before he was transferred to Marondera Provincial Hospital where he died on admission.

The body was taken to Marondera Central Hospital where a post mortem was carried out, revealing that Kudakwashe was killed by the poison he had consumed.
