Man Stabs Wife Who Was Protecting Their Three-year-old Daughter From Him
In a heart-wrenching turn of events, a 26-year-old woman from Greenhill suburb in Bulawayo was viciously stabbed by her own husband while trying to protect her three-year-old daughter from his physical abuse.
According to court proceedings, the accused, Takudzwa Madzirashe, allegedly came home on February 14th at around 5 am, and upon finding his daughter difficult to wake up, proceeded to physically assault her. In a desperate attempt to save her child from the brutal attack, Listen Dube, Madzirashe’s wife, intervened and took their daughter away.
However, B-metro reports, Madzirashe turned his aggression towards his wife, violently pushing her against the wall and then stabbing her right arm with a kitchen knife. Despite her injuries, Dube managed to escape and reported the incident to the authorities, leading to the arrest of Madzirashe.
Madzirashe has since pleaded guilty to two counts of physical abuse and assault and is set to appear before Bulawayo magistrate Nomagugu Maphosa for sentencing. Meanwhile, Dube is receiving medical attention for her injuries, which have left her shaken and traumatized.
The incident has sparked outrage among local residents, who are calling for justice to be served and for measures to be put in place to protect victims of domestic violence.
Meanwhile, a woman who is 45 years old was left with severe facial injuries after being attacked by her 43-year-old partner, Edward Chamburuka, when she found him with another woman at his house. During their argument, Chamburuka viciously bit the woman, identified as Eunice Chari, on the nose, resulting in her needing plastic surgery to fix the damage.
The case was brought before Concession magistrate, Joshua Nembaware, and Chamburuka was charged with physical abuse. According to B-metro, Chari went to Chamburuka’s home on December 14, 2022, only to find that the doors were locked. When she looked through the window, she saw Chamburuka with another woman.
Later that day, Chari returned to Chamburuka’s house to retrieve her fertilizer, and an argument erupted between the two. Chamburuka hit Chari on the forehead, and they began to push and shove each other. Chamburuka then bit Chari on the nose, causing significant damage and disfigurement.
