“He Humiliated Me” – Bulawayo Woman Who Axed Husband To Death Over TV Channels Speaks Out
The Bulawayo woman who axed her husband to death following an altercation over television channels has defended her actions saying that she was angry after being humiliated.
Ordetta Mpofu (44) of Emganwini suburb claimed that she reacted out of anger after her husband had humiliated in front of the children.
An apparently remorseless Ordetta said that her late husband, Thembani Mpofu (52), had humiliated her after he failed to take her side during a fight over television channels with their daughter.
Thembani apparently poured oil onto an already huge conflagration when he told Ordetta that she did not have any shares in the family’s matrimonial home. As a result of the humiliation, Ordetta became unhinged and axed Thembani to death.
Appearing before Bulawayo magistrate Mr Shepherd Munjanja facing a murder charge Ordetta outlined her defense saying,
“I acted out of anger when I struck my husband with an axe because he humiliated me in front of our children when he told me that I did not have shares in our home” reports the Chronicle
Magistrate Munjanja denied Ordetta bail and remanded her in custody until the 11 of May. However, he ordered that she should be examined by two doctors to ascertain her mental competency to stand trial. Unconfirmed reports say that Ordetta had undiagnosed mental issues.
Part of the police report on the case reads,
‘Police in Bulawayo are investigating a case of murder which occurred on 10 April in Emganwini. On the day at around 7.45 pm, the now deceased (father) was watching television with his wife and their two children.
One of the children changed the channel they were watching and that did not go down well with her mother who asked her to return to the previous channel,’ said Insp Ncube.
‘A misunderstanding arose between the daughter and her mother. The mother became angry and the father didn’t intervene and indicated that he was not involved in their misunderstanding and retired to bed.
At around 9.30 pm, the mother armed herself with an ax got into their bedroom and axed her husband three times on the head while he was asleep leading to his death,’
