Machete Attack Leaves Shurugwi Woman Dead

A machete-wielding Shurugwi man on Friday last week struck and killed a female vendor, while the attack left two other people seriously hurt.

Acting Midlands police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende confirmed the incident. She said:

Judith Ruzive died upon admission (at Gweru Provincial Hospital). Partson Bhenga and Chido Makanda are in serious condition.

Investigations are in progress with the suspect still at large. We urge people to respect the sanctity of life.

Ruzive was selling her wares outside Mzansi nightclub around 2 am when she was struck and killed by the suspect, Benjamin Chipatapata (26).

Chipapapata was angered by an unrelated incident which prompted him to fetch the machete which he used to attack people randomly.
