The wife of a businessman who was allegedly poisoned and strangled to death by two traditional healers during a money-making ritual in the Bindura area has died.
Medio Kashiri is one of the three people recently found dead at Bata Farm in Bindura. His wife died two days after his death, reportedly after experiencing a heart attack.
Petros Mwale and Antony Murombo Ndawana were the other two people found dead after they had drunk a concoction prepared by the traditional healers.
On Friday The Herald heard that the wife to Medio Kashiri died two days later with some in Rugare saying she died the night before her husband was buried.
According to neighbours, Kashiri’s wife was buried at Glen Forest to the north of Harare while her husband was buried at his rural home. One of the neighbours was quoted as saying:
We heard she complained of heartache. Akati ndabayiwa pamoyo and died that night before the burial of her husband.
We also heard her body was taken back to Harare for burial at Glen Forest where their children had bought graves for the couple.
The sister to Kashiri said the family spokesperson had travelled to the rural areas and he was the only one who was in a position to speak about the matter. She said:
I am sorry I cannot entertain your questions. We are still mourning. As you can see my mother is still mourning and cannot talk to you.
Our elder brother is the family spokesperson and he is not around. He is using a UK number and he will get back to you when he comes back.
Traditional healer Isaac Biningu (37) was arrested and appeared in court facing charges of murder and escaping from lawful custody.
He appeared in court on a stretcher bed due to injuries sustained after jumping from a moving police vehicle in his alleged bid to flee.
Biningu was remanded in custody to 27 May.
