Fradreck Chasara, a resident of Cranborne, has been accused of murdering his wife, Faith Musonza, and appeared in court facing one charge of murder. The woman’s corpse was found in a drain near their house by Hatfield police, with her nipples and nails ripped off.
Chasara claimed that he waited through the night for his wife to return home as usual and was surprised when he was called in by police to identify her corpse. He reported that his wife knocked off work at around 7 PM on that fateful day and was presumed to have gone home in Cranborne.
Chasara grew increasingly concerned when his wife did not show up at her usual time, prompting him to repeatedly call her phone, which went unanswered. After calling her number numerous times, it suddenly became unreachable, adding to his concern.
Unsure of what to do next, Chasara said he went to the bus stop in the hope that he would find her.
While Chasara maintains his innocence, neighbours interviewed by H-Metro have raised suspicions that he may have had a motive. A neighbour who spoke to the newspaper on condition of anonymity said Chasara masterminded his wife’s death by hiring assassins after he allegedly discovered his wife’s infidelity.
Chasara has been remanded in custody and advised to apply for bail at the High Court. The case is ongoing, and further updates will be provided as they become available.
