A 45 year-old Zimbabwean man from Kwekwe is battling for his life after he was allegedly stabbed on the chest by his 13-year-old-step son at the height of a heated dispute with his wife.
Police confirmed the tragedy.
â€śA 13-year-old male juvenile stabbed his stepfather once on the chest with a knife on 8 July 2021 at about 1950hrs in Kwekwe. The victim Absolom Muzanharo is battling for his life while admitted in Gweru Hospital,â€ť Midlands provincial police spokesperson Emmanuel Mahoko said.
Mahoko said AbsolomÂ Muzanharo arrived home from work and demanded his belongings from his wife Flora Nkomo as he wanted to move out of their house saying he was no longer interested in their customary marriage.
â€śA misunderstanding arose and Muzanharo struck Flora Nkomo with a stone once on the chest. Flora managed to escape leaving the complainant and the suspect at the house. Muzanharo tried to strike his stepson with a wooden stick and the stepson withdrew a knife and stabbed the complainant once on the chest. He fell down with the knife stuck on his chest and Flora Nkomo reported the matter to the police,â€ť Mahoko said.
The juvenile has since been arrested while Mazanharo was ferried to Kwekwe General Hospital and later transferred to Gweru Provincial Hospital for further management.
