A 30 year-old Wedza man died last week from drinking poison after he had earlier that day axed his wife in an extra-marital wrangle.

Mashonaland East provincial spokesperson, Inspector Norbert Muzondo confirmed the incident.

Muzondo said that last week, Never Moyo of Musekiwa Village under Chief Ruzande, had a misunderstanding with his wife Monica Gwaze whom he accused of being in an extra-marital affair with an unidentified fellow villager.

During the row an incensed Moyo is reported to have axed Gwaze four times on the head and twice on the left hand leaving her seriously injured and unconscious.

Other villagers came to her rescue and rushed Gwaze to Mount St. Mary’s hospital where she is still admitted and is reported to be in a critical condition.

After axing his wife, and sensing danger, Moyo is reported to have swallowed an unknown poisonous pesticide and was later found unconscious before being ferried to Goto Clinic where he died upon admission.

Muzondo said police investigations were still underway. However, the police spokesperson appealed to members of the public facing family and social problems to seek professional counselling at all times.
