Man kills mum with knobkerrie
A MAN has been charged with murder for beating his stepmother to death after becoming convinced she was a WITCH!
Smile Ncube, 35, twatted Antoneta Moyo, 56, with a knobkerrie – a traditional African weapon – after a run of bad luck convinced him he had been cursed.
Inspector Siphiwe Makonese, a spokesman for police in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe, said: “Smile Ncube returned home from South Africa where he is based and started accusing his stepmother of bewitching him. A domestic dispute ensued and the now deceased was beaten with a knobkerrie.”
