A woman from Zengeza, Chitungwiza has been arrested after the corpse of her husband, which was now in a decomposing state, was found in her house.
Her son, only identified as Grant, has been staying in the house but neighbours claim they last saw him more than twelve years ago. A neighbour told H-Metro:
We used to see Grant 14 years ago and, after that, Gogo Mahlahla was the only person we would see.
Taivawona vachibuda nekudzoka vakatakura bag ravo vakapfeka zvechechi.
Her other children are based outside the country.
Her husband was last seen in a wheelchair more than five years ago.
Gogo Mahlahla filed a sudden death report to the police and the cops discovered the body of her husband in a decomposing state.
They called the Homicide Section to attend the scene.
Police had to engage some volunteers to get Grant from the ceiling, according to H-Metro.
There were fears Grant could be violent since he was not responding to questions from police detectives.
Gogo Mahlahla told H-Metro that her late husband suffered a stroke in 1992 and had been using a wheelchair until his death.
She said they had five children together and Grant who was the fourth born is aged 39. Gogo Mahlahla said:
I joined church after discovering that evil spirits were haunting my family.
My husband was refusing to accompany me to church to receive prophecies related to our family.
Ndakaudzwa kuti Grant ndiye akadirwa mamhepo ose. “Andiparadzira midziyo yose inosanganisira geyser, television set and radio.
He is a possessed man.
She refused to answer questions about why she was living with her husband’s corpse for days.
