A manhunt has since been launched for Elisha Murimba (54) of House Number 7280, New Bordervale, Mutare, who allegedly murdered his wife, Victoria Murimba (46) in cold blood.

Acting Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Luxson Chananda, confirmed the murder and appealed for information leading to the arrest of Murimba.

Murimba, who is reported to have left a note claiming that his wife was seeing other men during his absence, is alleged to have fled his matrimonial home with a mistress and resettled in the Diaspora 25 years ago.

A source close to the family said Murimba and his girlfriend, whose identity was not disclosed, left the country for the United States via Australia.

It alleged that things didn’t work out for the couple and Murimba relocated to South Africa where he was staying until he came back to Zimbabwe.

“The family was preparing to host their father’s welcome bash when the murder was committed,” said a source close to the family.

Asst Insp Chananda said: “Our preliminary investigations showed that Victoria and Elisha retired to bed at around 8pm on Friday night.

“The couple’s daughter said her mother came to her bedroom around the same time and told her that she wanted to spend the night in the room with her. We are told that she later changed her mind and went back to the main bedroom where Elisha was sleeping.”

Asst Insp Chananda said it was the last time the daughter saw her mother alive.

“The following morning, the couple did not emerge from the bedroom until around 11am when the daughter decided to make a follow-up,” he said.

‘When the daughter opened the door, she realised that her mother was still in bed. When she opened the blankets that is when she saw her body lying in a pool of blood. Her mother’s throat was slit open with an unknown object.

“She raised alarm and neighbours rushed to the scene. Their father had long vanished.”

The shocking murder has since gone viral on the social media, with people calling for the arrest of Elisha. The Herald

        We do not know that she waited for him. What we know is that she was successful. We do not know whether he was “welcome.” What we know is that a “welcome” party had been planned. What we do not know is the woman’s intention by throwing the party.

        What I know is that at such a party, the man’s foolishness would be exposed as speaker after speaker would narrate how they knew the enterprising woman with no husband’s input — mufundisi wekuchechi, mukuru we Ruwadzano, District superintendent we chechi, Chamber of Commerce representative, neighbourhood association, representatives of schools where children were educated, etc.

        Murume uyu ndiye waizo nanikwa kunga gwaya ratumburwa, even though the party may have been genuine welcome pasina malice!!
