The proprietor of Bensam Flats in Gweru CBD — where a local businessman Peter Dube allegedly shot four people, killing two of them instantly last Friday — has kicked out the victims’ families.
Dube (35), a car dealer, has been in hiding since he allegedly shot and killed his second wife’s alleged lover, Shelton Chinhango, also a car dealer based in Kwekwe and Gamuchirai Mudungwe (30) of Gweru.
He also allegedly shot and injured his second wife, Nyasha Nharingo (31) and her sister Nyaradzo (34).
One of the tenants at the flats told Chronicle on condition of anonymity that the landlord visited the premises on Sunday night and ordered Nyasha and her family to move out. Said the tenant:
The landlord came last night and ordered Nyasha’s family out. He was in a no-nonsense mood. Nyasha, remember was planning to vacate the flat which Peter Dube was renting for her. We don’t know where they went but it was bad.
Nyasha is admitted to Gweru Provincial Hospital where her condition is said to be stable as she is out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and is recuperating in a female surgical ward.
Her sister was supposed to be operated on last night to remove a bullet lodged in her head.
