Man Spends Days With Dead Wife!
A Harare man had been living with his dead wife for a number of days.
Percy Njikizani, from Glen Norah A, never reported the death of his wife — Elar Mundembe — to the police. Neighbors called the police after a stench from the flat raised suspicion.
Circumstances leading to death could not be established. A neighbor said: “This woman was not free to let anyone into her house or life.
“I’ve been here for 11 years, but I never got into her house. She was reserved such that no one got close to her. “When this unfortunate incident occurred, the best that we could do after the persistent bad smell was to call the Glen Norah police and to call their nephew — Eddie who stays down there in Glen View 7 Extension.
Eddie is her nephew from her husband’s side. “We had been suspecting this odor to be of a rotting rat for days.” The neighbor said when the police arrived, they broke in and discovered the corpse on the sofa while the husband was in another room seated on the bed.
“It is not normal for one to stay in the same house with a dead person. “It might be a sign that the husband may be sick too,” the neighbor said.
Another neighbor, Byron Mujoko, said he was shocked that the woman had died. “Momz vanga van bho though vayisataura na everyone. She was very reserved.
She was my wife’s customer at her work, a hair salon at Machipisa. “My wife did her hair in February. I have known Mai Njikizani since 1999 when I was working at Glen Norah Supermarket and she was working for Harare City Council.
“She was a very good neighbor. There is a guy called Tanya from the back of this block who came to me saying Mai Njikizani asked him to pray for her because she was having challenges with breathing.
“She asked people to pray for her from a distance, not inside her house,” said Mujoko. Mai Njikizani’s friend, Rude Masomera, said: “Mai Njikizani was not a fancy woman but she is that kind of a reserved person who often wanted to live a lonely life.
“Imagine, she is the only person I would leave my children with whenever I was at work.
A person that you trust your children with, that person will be a good person,” said Masomera. Mai Njikizani is survived by a husband and 27-year-old Nyasha.
