A KWEKWE man com­mit­ted sui­cide by hang­ing on Mon­day af­ter al­legedly rap­ing his wife’s younger sis­ter (5).

Mid­lands po­lice spokesper­son In­spec­tor Joel Goko said yes­ter­day:

“I can con­firm that we re­ceived a sud­den death re­port which hap­pened at Amaveni, Kwekwe and in­ves­ti­ga­tions are still in progress. Sam­son Machaya (60) had a mis­un­der­stand­ing with his wife over a case of rape of which Machaya was the ac­cused.

“He was re­fus­ing to go to the court say­ing that he did not want to go to jail for some­thing he did not do. There­fore a mis­un­der­stand­ing arose and Machaya ran away from home and it was on Oc­to­ber 1 at around 6PM and never re­turned.”

Insp Goko said a search party found Machaya’s body hang­ing from a tree in a nearby bush on Mon­day.

A source who spoke to The Chron­i­cle on con­di­tion of anonymity said: “Machaya who is a for­mer Sable Chem­i­cals em­ployee raped his wife’s young sis­ter aged five years old while she was away and later hanged him­self be­cause he feared go­ing to jail.”— @wyn­nezane.
