Man kills mum with knobker­rie

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

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.”
