Man Attempts To Rape Brothers Wife_Axes Village Head After Being Summoned For Trial

A 20-year-old Zaka man fatally struck his village head with an ax for summoning him to a traditional court to rebuke him for attempting to rape his brother’s wife.

Seeking to make the best of his brother’s absence who was in South Africa, Maxwell Manyiwa of Chidembo village tried to force himself onto his brother’s wife with little success. After Manyiwa’s efforts, his brother’s wife then reported the case to the village head who summoned the accused for trial.

After Manyiwa was called for trial, Manyiwa allegedly attacked Naison Chidembo (65) of the same village twice on the head with an ax on Tuesday and he died on the spot. Manyanyiwa also went on to threaten the village head’s younger brother. The matter was then reported to the police which led to Manyiwa’s arrest.

Appearing before Zaka magistrate Mrs. Gladys Nago yesterday on murder charges, Manyiwas was not asked to plead and was remanded in custody to February 9 for the indictment to trial at the High Court.

Representing the state Mr. Innocent Mudzingwa alleged that the accused struck Chidembo on the head, who died on the spot.

” On Tuesday at around 9 am, Manyiwa who lives with an unnamed brothers wife was brought before the traditional court, presided over by the now deceased Chidembo, to answer to charges of attempted rape,” said Mr. Mudzingwa.

The court heard that Chidembo had called Manyiwa, who is also his nephew and his brother’s wife, to counsel them following the rape allegations.

Mr. Mudzingwa told the court that Manyiwa, who seemed callous about the matter, had his rage fuelled by Chidembos reproof.
