Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

The cou­ple had an al­ter­ca­tion over an undis­closed is­sue on No­vem­ber 27.

“The now de­ceased started as­sault­ing Ncube and in re­tal­i­a­tion she is sus­pected to have used a kitchen knife to stab him on the right arm thereby rup­tur­ing an artery,” said Chief Insp Makonese.

Man­gari col­lapsed and was rushed to Vic­to­ria Falls Hospi­tal where he was ad­mit­ted.

Ncube on the other hand rushed to the po­lice and re­ported a case of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence against Man­gari.

Man­gari was ar­rested on No­vem­ber 26 when he went to the po­lice to press charges af­ter his dis­charge from hospi­tal. Po­lice said he did not dis­close that he was stabbed. Man­gari was taken to court and re­leased on sum­mons.

He vis­ited Vic­to­ria Falls on three oc­ca­sions and was treated and dis­charged.

His fourth visit was af­ter he re­port­edly col­lapsed at the Im­mi­gra­tion Of­fices as his fam­ily was ap­ply­ing for a one-day pass to take him to Liv­ing­stone, Zam­bia for treat­ment as his con­di­tion de­te­ri­o­rated.

Hospi­tal au­thor­i­ties trans­ferred him to Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal for blood trans­fu­sion and treat­ment.

He how­ever died in an am­bu­lance in Hwange on his way to Bu­l­awayo.

Po­lice opened mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tions af­ter a post­mortem showed that Man­gari died of acute ane­mia and artery in­jury.

The fam­ily, how­ever, says a po­lice of­fi­cer who han­dled the case was aware that Man­gari had been stabbed and put him in cells de­spite the fact that he was bleed­ing when he went to re­port a case against Ncube. — @ncubeleon.
