Lameck Brande, the husband of the woman who killed their four children at their home in Chivhu on Wednesday said he is still to come to terms with what transpired as he never expected that his wife would harm their children.
Speaking from his Highview residence in Chivhu this Thursday, Brande said whenever he had an argument with his wife, she threatened to leave him with nothing but he never suspected that “nothing’ meant no children. He said:
We had our misunderstandings but they were petty. At one point during our misunderstandings, she told me that she would leave me with nothing.
I never imagined that she would go to the extent of killing our children. I am in pain.
Brande said the burial of the quartet will be done once all processes have been completed.
The four bodies are at Chivhu General Hospital mortuary awaiting post-mortem.
Meanwhile, Brande’s wife, Emelda Marazani, has blamed him for the unfortunate incident though she regrets killing the children.
Marazani is currently admitted at Chivhu General Hospital where she is receiving treatment after a failed suicide attempt soon after killing the children yesterday.
