Zimbabwean Man kills Wife over used condom

A 24-year-old Chitungwiza woman was on Saturday allegedly beaten to death by her husband following an altercation over a used condom she had found in his pockets while doing laundry.

Police confirmed the incident yesterday and said investigations were underway.

Police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi expressed concern over the increase in crimes of passion.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police is investigating a case of suspected murder in which a 24-year-old female was found dead in her house in Chitungwiza.

“On 11 February 2017 at around 0100 hours, the now deceased had a quarrel with her 34-year-old husband over a used condom that she had found in one of her husband’s pockets while doing laundry,” she said.

Chief Supt Nyathi said on Sunday at around 8am, the informant who is the husband’s sister-in-law, and had heard the quarrel, went to investigate in the woman’s house after being attracted by an unpleasant smell.

“She opened the door and found the body under the bed facing downwards with a string around the neck, a swollen face and blood coming out of the mouth,” she said.

A report was then made to the police and the body was taken to a hospital mortuary for a post
mortem.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police are disturbed that crimes of passion continue to rise in spite of our efforts to urge people to seek a third person for assistance, to settle down misunderstandings.

“We will, however, continue to emphasise that couples should not try to resolve such disputes on their own as in most cases, they end up worsening the situation,” Chief Supt Nyathi said.
