Tawanda Mahohoma (50) used an iron bar to assault Ms Brilliant Ngwenya (33) all over the body and thereafter bashed her head several times with a brick. She died on the spot.

The incident occurred at around 4PM on Tuesday outside Ms Ngwenya’s house at Nkayi Business Centre.

Matabeleland North police spokesperson Inspector Siphiwe Makonese confirmed the murder.

“I can confirm that we received a report of murder. A woman was struck several times all over her body with some object. She was also bashed several times on the head with a brick until she died. Police have since arrested the suspect and he is expected to appear in court soon to answer to murder charges,” she said.

Insp Makonese urged members of the public to desist from engaging in violence to resolve disputes.

“People need to learn to resolve their differences amicably without resorting to violence. As police we are worried that despite all these warnings, people still attack each other resulting in deaths. People should engage the police, church elders or family members to assist in resolving disputes as opposed to resorting to violence,” she said.

A source close to Ms Ngwenya said the two had allegedly been in a relationship for about five years.

The source said on the fateful day, Mahohoma visited Ms Ngwenya at around 4pm.

Ms Ngwenya, a trained nurse from Hwange district, got a job in May this year and was deployed to Nkayi district.

Mahohoma’s Tuesday visit was the second in less than a week after he visited Ms Ngwenya mid last week and that is when she informed him that they could not continue with the affair because she had established that he was married.

Mahohoma is said to have turned violent prompting Ms Ngwenya to seek a peace order which she was granted. On Saturday, Mahohoma returned to his family which is in Hwange town only to return on Tuesday when he allegedly murdered Ms Ngwenya.

The source said Ms Ngwenya was about to leave her house when she met Mahohoma who then attacked her without saying a word. He allegedly assaulted her all over the body with an iron bar before bashing her head several times with a brick and she died on the spot.

Nkayi District Medical Officer Dr Thabani Moyo said Ms Ngwenya had just knocked off when she was murdered.

“We are told a passerby tried to intervene but Mahohoma was too powerful for him. Seeing that he wouldn’t back off, the passerby rushed to the police station and reported the matter. By the time police arrived, Mahohoma had fled from the scene.

Police however caught up with him while looking for lifts along Nkayi Road and arrested him,” said Dr Moyo. He said Ms Ngwenya was undergoing an induction at Nkayi district hospital before moving to Fansoni Council Clinic where she had been deployed.

Members of staff close to Ms Ngwenya said they saw Mahohoma whom they knew as her boyfriend earlier on the fateful day carrying a metal bar saying he was looking for Ms Ngwenya. They said at one time they spotted him drinking beer at a bar at Nkayi Business Centre. The Chronicle

  • this is evil

    • Tawanda Mahohoma?

    • What’s that got to do the crime committed? Murder is a crime whether it has committed by descendents of mbuya nehanda or whoever and law should take its course over the culprit

    • Tawanda Mohohoma is not a Ndebele name. In this age and time you are still stuck in tribalism and stereotyping of people,based on their origins? Which tribe or even race can proudly stand up and say we have a clean sheet of life,that is free from murderers, cheaters, adulterers etc? Crime knows no tribe and it doesn’t respect individuals as long as one creates or is in an environment that makes him/her it’s victim. An individual’s uncouth behaviour does not represent the behaviour of all people from a given tribe.

  • Seems he had spent fortunes on her before , during and after training. On completing the training course the lady says but u are married, leave me, i need space. Well, this thing called love is a dangerous game. To this offender you went too far wth ur emotions. Infact u were wrong from e beginning by cheating ur wife and probably diverting some of ur earnings from home use to the younger misstress. It even got worse now tht you are gona be a small house urself this tym at Chikurub

  • Crime is crime guys where does Shaka comes in here.We condemn crime full stop,lokhu okokuthi kukoSkhobokhobo akusebenzi.

    • Iqiniso malume. Crime has to be addressed as it is ,not on tribal lines. In this case a Tawanda Mahohoma commits crime in Mat North and he automatically becomes Ndebele to others. Such mentality needs correction. Even if The murderer was a Ndebele, his actions are not a true reflection of all Ndebele people. He is Shona and his actions does not reflect the behaviour of Shona people. The moment people start to stereotype a tribe based on some uncouth and unbecoming behaviour exhibited by certan individuals from that tribe, everything goes wrong. The issue that needs to be addressed is, crime which knows no tribe or respects tribes,but others of not so noble reasoning swiftly change it to a tribal thing. We are all equal before God and the law of the land. Zimbabwe is our country and home together as a people. Zim ilizwe lethu, ikhaya lethu sonke njengebantu bakaNkulunkulu.

    • May God bless you my brother

    • so sad

        He was paying for sex. Saka hapana kudyiwa apa. Intergenerational relationships tend to be transactional, vairovana.

    • there is a way that seem right in the eyes of man,but at the end it leads to death.lord have mercy on our souls.

    • Gymbunny

      I think it was a transactional relationship, she gives sex, he pays with goods. He misinterpreted it for love.

  • Tawanda Mahohoma. Where does he come from??? Probably not Zimbabwean

  • Zimbwa remunhu nxaaaa

  • bt there is no reason for that…

  • mubairo wezvivi rufu

  • U come all the way from mashonaland to kill our sisters wena mdidwakho

    • yu dont know the reason why she was killed dont just insult wena ndoda

    • Eakewalibona nhaphi indebele lako sibanda iwe muvhitori wakapambwa na lobengula sthutha somuntu

  • If you see yourself justifying murder because of some monetary issues you also have a dark shadow or spirit hanging over you. This is callous. It’s unacceptable! Nobody owns anybody. This is even exacerbated by the fact that it’s a married man! How shameful. Prison awaits… thereafter the gallows or gilotine… your choice.

    • u nailed it

    • prevention is better than cure.let every one be advised that the moment we tread aganst God”s requirements we expose ourselves.many girls pretend not to know that they are in affair with married people for the love of money.when God say something he mean exactly what he say.can someone put hot coal in his garments and not burn himself according to proverbs.

    • No one has a right to take anyone’s life.

    • Well said

  • To help women in the business of using men for their convenience, its a pathetic excuse that you meet a 45 year old and think that he is not married?????? I gave a lift to a university student recently who made advances and tried to seduce me showing me what her mama gave her from the neck to her knees. Out of curiosity i led her on and she never bothered to ask if i was married. Her mission was use her feminine power over me the sexually weak specie to get a free ride and even milk me probably until she finishes university then dumb me when she gets married or gets a job. Now a lot of men fall for this fake love and invest emotionally and financially into them. When the young lady is done using you she throws you out like last week’s garbage. Watch this story this man murdered someone but when the truth comes out you will see that it had to do with betrayal of a emotional and financial investiment on the woman not kuti angorambwa pasina chaakaitira mukadzi uyu obva amuuraya??? When such women dumb a man they do it in such a way that a knife through the heart is better than their words. Ladies a few of you will meet man like this murderer who may kill of hurt you. Dont take advantage of your attractiveness to lie your way to the good life and hope you will get away easily.

    • This guy is a scam bank he doesn’t deserve to live. Human life has no price. I wonder if you would be having the same view had he murdered your little sister?

    • Dont be too emoyinal read what i said it will be good advice even for your little sister and my little sister. Jail will not stop other men to react like this murderer but if women desist from palyin with fire they will be safe thats my view, its good to show sympathy but its best to avoid getting killed and i think i am advising my little sister and yours to avoid getting killed by simply being careful when it comes to love. you are allowed to say NO if you are not sure, Dont say YES to deceive. Dont commit before you date and know someone better.

      • Gymbunny

        Are you a taxi driver? Kana moyo muchena

  • U can’t just waste my time and resources then dump me! Sure inochifira

  • Mwari havadhakwi … Wakupinda mujerry nw

  • He is just mentally deranged! A schizophrenic perhaps.

  • Really its not justifiable to kill someone for any reason

    Also ladies ladies ladies IS THIS NOT A LESSON THAT YOU’RE ALWAYS FAILING TO LEARN.Why in the first place?Why?
    Leave married men.
    Kuzvikoro ikoko murikurasa hunhu talk of universities muchirara mumabhawa nenzvimbo dzekufarira.What shall we say at your funeral?MUNOTISHAISA MASPEECH EKUTAURA.
    Anywhere….. SORRY to the bereaved families relatives and friends even to children if any.

    Remember the devil is a long term planner.STAY IN THE LORD ALWAYS,He is our shield, fortress, strong tower,light unto our feet.

    Stay Blessed….

  • I don’t know the details but there is never a justification to kill another human being. Whether he is wrong or right his life will never be the same. The most unfortunate part of this is, Mother, grandmother, father, grandfather, aunt, uncle, children will all be affected in a negative way. Life is over. Ask God for forgiveness.

  • Sad news,i wish the government can introduce free quality education for all Zimbabweans maybe we can avoid this thing of sugar daddies. Admin i also ask you to write about poor road infrastructure of NKAYI.We don’t have roads nor bridges especially from Nkayi CBD to Kana Mission.Gweru/Gwelo river bridge can be wiped away this year if God gives us heavy rains like last year.
