A Zimbabwean woman, Caroline Chenai Mubvakure (39) was killed in front of her four-year-old son when unknown men slit her throat and stabbed her multiple times in Pietermaritzburg, Kwazulu Natal on Saturday afternoon.
The killers only took her cellphone and the Wi-fi router.
He said Caroline Chenai Mubvakure‚Äôs body was still warm so he thought they might still be able to save her but she was already gone, according to News.
He added ‚ÄúI think my son tried to wake her up when the killers left and that‚Äôs how he got blood on his clothes because he wasn‚Äôt harmed except for a small bump on his chin, but he hasn‚Äôt told us how it came about‚ÄĚ
No witnesses to the heinous crime have been found. The distraught husband could not understand why someone would take a life for a cellphone and a router.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt think they were trying to rob, I believe they just wanted to kill but I don‚Äôt know what the motive was, he said.
The family has lived on the property for 9 years and had never had a break-in. Relatives and friends who gathered at the house said it did not make sense how someone knew that she was home as she lived in an outside building at the back of the property.
‚ÄúThey jumped over the gate and there was blood at the top but I‚Äôm sure whether one of them got injured or it was my wife‚Äôs blood‚ÄĚ.
Mutambaziko said Caroline Chenai Mubvakure had wanted to be buried in their home in Zimbabwe but he did not know whether they would be allowed to do due to the COVID-19 restrictions on cross border travel.
Caroline Chenai Mubvakure was a cleaner in the offices of a Pietermaritzburg law firm and Mutabaziko runs a plumbing business.
