Pumula Husband Unleashed His Wrath Upon Cheating Wife
A 38-year-old Pumula husband, Blessed Ndlovu unleashed wrath upon discovering his wife was allegedly cheating on him. Returning home that evening, Blessing confronted his 38-year-old wife Eppie Ncube, accusing her of infidelity.
A Violent Confrontation
Tempers flared between the couple, escalating into a physical altercation. Blessing subjected his wife to a barrage of punches and kicks, leaving her with multiple injuries. The severity of her condition required medical attention, leading to her hospitalization.
A Disturbing Act
In a further shocking act, while alone at home, Blessing reportedly poured paraffin on his wife’s clothes and set them ablaze. Neighbors rushed to the scene, witnessing the burning clothes and promptly alerted the police.
Facing the Consequences
As a result of the reported crime, Ndlovu was arrested and subsequently appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Learnear Khumalo. He faced charges of physical abuse and malicious damage to property. In court, Blessing pleaded guilty and was remanded out of custody until November 6 for sentencing.
Another Disturbing Incident
In a separate incident, a 49-year-old man from Bulawayo’s Old Lobengula suburb was arrested and charged with aggravated indecent assault against a six-year-old child. The accused, whose identity is being withheld to protect the minor, appeared before Western Commonage court regional magistrate Sibongile Msipa-Marondedze.
The Alleged Assault
On October 17, around 2 pm, while the victim’s mother was away, the accused allegedly called the minor girl, who was playing outside with friends. Luring her to his bedroom under false pretenses of getting sweets, the accused purportedly locked the door behind them.
A Horrific Act
Inside the room, the man instructed the minor to lie down on the bed, where he allegedly proceeded to fondle her private parts, causing bruising and bleeding. After the assault, the traumatized girl returned to her room. Later, when her mother arrived home, the child bravely disclosed the ordeal.
The mother immediately reported the incident to the police, leading to the arrest of the accused. He appeared in court and was remanded in custody until November 14, pending further legal proceedings.
These distressing incidents highlight the importance of addressing domestic violence and protecting the innocence of children. Recently H-Metro reported a similar case of a 50-year-old man from Seke who molested a 14-year-old grade 7 kid.
