Her decomposing body later discovered by one Simon Mukwasha who was coming from a place of prayer and he then notified the police.
Harare provincial police spokesperson Inspector Tendai Mwanza confirmed the incident saying investigations into the case were ongoing. He said:
Police received a report from a Zimbabwe National Parks Warden officer that a body in its decomposing state was found at a bush near Lake Chivero at around 3 pm on Sunday.
Reports were that the informant went to his shrine for some prayers and was attracted by a stench coming from the southeastern side of the shrine.
Informant became suspicious and trailed the direction of the scent up until he discovered a lifeless naked body of an unknown woman lying in a dense grassy area.
The body was taken to Sally Mugabe Central Hospital mortuary for a post mortem and investigations are in progress.
Chikwengo was well-known for visiting Lake Chivero for buying fish from fishmongers for resale.
