Mashonaland East police spokesperson, Norbert Muzondo, confirmed the arrest of Doubt Mabvanyika of Madyangove Village in Chivhu for assaulting his mother, Naume Madyangove, 68 to death. Mabvanyika killed his mother following an argument over sadza and only informed relatives of her death the following morning.
Mabvaranyika is alleged to have returned home from drinking and started preparing food before his mother instructed him to instead use a larger pot as she also wanted to eat. This is believed to have angered him and he assaulted his mother with a cooking stick until it broke into several pieces before he pushed her out of the kitchen and attacked her with bricks and a hoe handle.
On realising that his mother had died, Doubt went back into the kitchen and continued to prepare his food. After eating he retired to bed.
