A husband lost his life during a fight with his wife’s lover on Saturday night following an altercation at the woman’s house in Mabutweni suburb.
According to reports in Zimbabwe, Mr Collen Muleya, 52, died in the early hours of yesterday after bleeding from the right arm where he had been allegedly stabbed by his rival, only identified as Nomzy from Mpopoma.
The man who has been having issues with his wife over her infidelity and has been staying separate from her had gone to her house to see the children when the incident happened.
It was gathered that Mr Muleya’s ex-wife Ms Margaret Komba reportedly brought Nomzy to her home around midnight and the two lovebirds found Muleya there, resulting in the fight.
Neighbours said Ms Komba and Nomzy had been arrested.
Mr Muleya and Ms Komba’s son, Shepherd Muleya, 24, who stays at another house in the suburb, told The Chronicle that he watched his father die as they were waiting for transport to take him to the hospital.
“My father wanted things to work between them and visited frequently to see his children. He was always taking my mother to hospital when she wasn’t well but complained that my mother goes out drinking and brings other men home,” he said.
Ms Komba’s brother-in-law, Mr Twoboy Moyo, who also lives in Mabutweni, said she stopped staying with her ex-husband because he was always physically assaulting her.
He said he started visiting when he lost his job where he was working in Killarney but would sleep in a separate room from his ex-wife.
