A young man in Zimbabwe has lost his life after reportedly being attacked by an angry husband who caught him in the act of sexual intercourse with his wife.
Ndabezinhle Sibanda is said to have been having an affair with 22-year-old Catherine, wife of one Frank Ncube.
Mr. Ncube stumbled upon them one day and in his anger he is said to have attacked Sibanda and killed him.
According to reports:
Ncube grabbed a wooden log and heavily bashed the daring man’s head twice. He however, did not feel accomplished. Ncube then allegedly grabbed a spear and threw it towards Ndabezinhle’s head. The spear reportedly pierced through the cheating man’s skull and the herd boy breathed his last immediately.
The incident occurred last week in Pioneer Village 3 in Fort Rixon after Ncube who works in Bulawayo unexpectedly returned home and caught the two in the act.
Realizing that Ncube had been angered to the last extent and upon seeing that her lover had been speared to death, Catherine took to her heels while naked. Ncube left the dead man alone in his bedroom, stark naked and in a pool of blood. He rushed to his aunt’s house nearby where he narrated how he had murdered the man he had seen having sex with his wife.
The aunt, Sibongile Maphosa and her husband Mhlabeni Sibanda immediately rushed to the scene after learning what had happened.
“We then quickly went to the scene and we found the victim lying in a pool of blood. The blood-stained spear was next to the body. It was such a horrific sight. The eyes were plucked out and the spear had pierced through the skull, cracking it open, and brains were spilling,” said the uncle.
Members of the Neighbourhood Watch Committee and neighbours were informed and they rushed to the scene to catch a glimpse of the murdered naked man.
Police had to attend the scene before arresting Ncube. Sources say the herd boy and the married woman had been cheating for quite a very long time. Ncube appeared in court on Monday charged with murder. He was not asked to plead and was remanded in custody to 24 February.
