More Details About Woman Who Was Brutally Murdered In The Avenues
Samantha Hlahla, a suspected lady of the night, was discovered brutally murdered in her apartment at room 25 Trocadero Court in the Avenues area of Harare on Monday night.
Samantha’s body is reported to have been discovered by her boyfriend on Monday night who then alerted her neighbours. According to some of the people that IHarare spoke to, some of her neighbours heard screams but did not go investigate the source of the noise.
Indications are that she was strangled after a physical altercation with an as yet unidentified perpetrator. Some of the acquaintances also claimed that some of Samantha’s property was missing as there were two television sets which could not be found, indicating that perhaps robbery took place.
She was single with no children and is survived by her grandmother. Mourners are gathered at her grandmother’s place in Mufakose. Her friends and acquaintances have also said that they are not yet sure about the burial arrangements as the authorities will need to conduct an autopsy (post-mortem) first.
Samantha is the third woman to have been murdered in Harare in the past few weeks after DJ Alexander ‘Xndr’ Mutumha’s ex-girlfriend Zaleekhah Khan was assaulted in Ridgeview and Prudence Gold Madzadzavara was brutally murdered in Eastlea last week. Commenting on the spate of murders, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) National Spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said
ZRP is investigating the sad murder cases and we appeal for any information that can assist us. We also urge women to avoid walking in secluded places. If at home lock doors.
