Man Kills Second Wife With The Assistance Of First One
Omen Mabhena, a 40-year-old man, and his first wife, Elizabeth Chidzanga of Virginia Valley farm compound in Gweru, Zimbabwe, are presently on the run after allegedly colluding to murder the second wife, Dorcas Edith Moyo.
The husband was alleged to have disposed her body in a disused mine shaft, with aid from her first wife, and that has led to a manhunt for the couple by the men of Police after the neighbours reported to the security agents.
Sources close to the investigations said Mabhena had a dispute with Moyo on April 22.
“On Sunday around 7pm, Mabhena had quarreled with Moyo, accusing her of infidelity.
“They were heard by their neighbour, Mr. Thomas Zimba, who soon left for work,” said a source.
“From April 22 to 24, Zimba the neighbour did not see Moyo around the compound and he became suspicious.
“On the same day at around 1pm, Mr Zimba saw Mabhena and first wife Chidzanga preparing for a journey, which further raised his suspicions.
“He asked Mabhena about Moyo’s whereabouts and he never gave a satisfactory answer,” the source added.
Another source said that around 7pm, Zimba informed another neighbour, Mr. Twoboy Nemagonde, about his suspicions before the two proceeded to the police to make a report.
“On April 25, Zimba discovered that Mabhena and his first wife had fled from the compound.
“On the same day, police mobilised a search party and Moyo’s body was discovered in a disused mine shaft,” said the source.
The body was found decomposing and police have launched a manhunt for the two suspects.
