Two women from Mabvuku, Harare have been arrested and arraigned before the courts for killing a robber who had attacked them.
It is alleged that on October 10 at around 5 am, Phoebe Tembo and Petronella Ndlovu were on their way home from fetching water from a well in Mabvuku when they were attacked by Gunungo who demanded cellphones.
The duo refused to give their phones to Gunungo who proceeded to drag Ndlovu prompting Tembo to intervene thereby triggering a fight.
Gunungo reportedly hit Tembo on the mouth with an iron bar and she lost her teeth before she pulled his privates. He managed to shove her to the ground and sat on her stomach trying to strangle her.
Ndlovu then disarmed Gunungo of the iron bar and allegedly hit him several times on the head, leading to his death.
The women were not asked to plead to the allegations before Harare magistrate Judith Taruvinga who granted them $500 bail each.
