3 Chivi brothers, Duduzile, Bright, and Daniel Tizirai of Makuvire village in Masvingo Province have appeared before Masvingo High Court Judge Justice Garainesu Mawadze charged with murder after they reportedly teamed up to murder their own mother, The Sunday Mail reports.
The 3 Chivi brothers reportedly killed their mother Nyengeterai Tizirai as they accused her of causing the death of her daughter-in-law. It is the state’s case that the Chivi brothers:
On April 5 this year, the co-accused approached their now deceased mother, Nyengeterai Tizirai, and accused her of causing the death of her daughter-in-law.
The trio reportedly took the deceased to Nyaningwe dip-tank, tied her hands with a rope and took turns to assault her using a rubber strip and logs.
A witness, Cathrine Tatenda, assisted the victim and made a police report after discovering that she was struggling to breathe.
A post-mortem report showed that the deceased succumbed to haemorrhagic shock, blunt trauma and assault.
The Tizirai brothers will be back in court on 22 November. Murder cases are on the rise countrywide as the country is still coming to terms with the death of Tapiwa Makore who was murdered by his namesake and uncle Tapiwa Makore who was assisted by a local herdboy Tafadzwa Shamba.
