A 73-year-old Mbare woman, Gogo Oripa Mukumbi, was burnt to death last week after her house caught fire under unclear circumstances.
The elderly woman was identified as Mrs Oripa Mukumbi and her body was taken to Sally Mugabe Central Hospital mortuary. In an interview yesterday, Mrs Mukumbi’s son, Mr Godfrey Mukumbi, said the cause of the fire was still to be established.
“I am not sure about the cause of fire since I was not around, but from what we gathered, the fire started in the room she was sleeping in,” he said.
“Some neighbours and family members teamed up and managed to extinguish the fire. They also managed to take some items outside the house. But most of the property was burnt.” Her son Mr Godfrey Mukumbi spoke to The Herald on the mishap which befell their family.
