ZIMBABWE – A jilted woman is alleged to have burnt down her husband’s car to ashes following a cheating dispute.
has learned from a local publication PachopisaTv that, Rudo Chakanyuka (45) burnt down her husband’s Nissan Caravan to ashes in a fit of jealousy after she had suspected him of cheating on her.
Masvingo Provincial Police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident which happened on the 2nd of January at Mucheke stadium.
According to close sources, Chakanyuka who is married to Denfod Mazorodze is alleged to have went along with her husband to Chitima market for some business. While at the market, Mazorodze is reported to have asked his wife for the car keys so that he could charge his cell phone.
