A woman in Zimbabwe died after she was fatally assaulted for turning down a love proposal.

60-year-old Shanangurai Chomwise died after she was ‘beaten to death’ by Jabulani Mutengwa, a 31-year-old man from the same village in Mberengwa.

According to iHarare, following the brutal assault, Shanangurai was admitted at a local Hospital where she died 24 days later.

Midlands provincial police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko confirmed the incident and said that the police have since launched a manhunt for Mutengwa, who went on the run following the savage assault. Speaking to the publication, Inspector Goko said,

“The accused Jabulani Mutengwa and the now-deceased Ms Shanangurai Chomwise are of the same village.

“On June 5 around 7 PM, the now deceased was at Mwembe business centre, Chief Mataruse area in Mberengwa where she had gone to see her relative called Reason Gumbo (21).

“When she was leaving the business centre for her home, Jabulani Mutengwa approached her and proposed love to her but she turned him down,”

According to the Inspector, Mutengwa was so furious after his proposal was turned down that he lashed out at Shanangurai. He is alleged to have savagely assaulted her using a stick.

“The following day, a report of assault was made at ZRP Buchwa and the scene was attended before Chomwise was referred to Mnene Hospital for medical examination and she was admitted. Investigations were instituted,”

“The matter was reported to the police and the body is still at Mnene Hospital awaiting post mortem.

“A manhunt for Jabulani Mutengwa has started. We call upon anyone with information that might lead to his arrest to approach the nearest police station,”
