A Chinhoyi man fatally shot a man who was passing by his homestead after suspecting that he was having an affair with his wife.
Mashonaland West provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Clemence Mabgweazara, confirmed the incident saying police launched a manhunt for Weston Murarahanda (32) who killed Elias Munhundowarwa (28) of Plot 2, Ringari Farm in Chinhoyi.
Munhundowarwa was driving an ox-drawn cart when tragedy struck. The man was passing through Murarahanda’s homestead who long suspected him of having an affair with his wife.
Munhundowarwa was coming from Nakaswa Business Centre when Murarahanda saw him and allegedly took his shotgun and fired a shot directed at him.
The shot hit Munhundowarwa on the right armpit and he died on the spot.
On realising what he had done, Murarahanda disappeared from the scene leaving behind the shotgun — serial number F63538 and a spent cartridge was recovered on the scene.
The deceased’s body was taken to Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital for a post-mortem.
Mabgweazara said police were investigating whether the firearm was registered or not.
