A Zimbabwean man, who has been on the run after he allegedly murdered his wife and rolled her body in a plastic, is said to have committed suicide while being chased by police in Pretoria, South Africa.
There is a video clip that has gone viral on social media that shows a man jumping down the bridge, with the police hard on his heels.
Reports say the late fugitive, Kuziwa Tsvito from Dangamvura in Mutare, allegedly killed his wife Netsai Makore, 33, two weeks ago and wrapped the body in plastics before stashing it under their matrimonial bed.
It is further alleged that Tsvito stayed in the same room with his three-year-old daughter and the decomposing body.
Allegations are that Tsvito killed his wife after suspecting her of infidelity.
Zim Morning Post also heard that Tsvito afterwards transferred money from his now deceased wife’s account into his own.
A South African newspaper reported that the two used to fight frequently as Tsvito would regularly take Netsai’s belongings to some of his alleged girlfriends. Zim Morning Post

‘Alleged killer still alive’
Brother to the deceased, Joseph Makore, insists Tsvito could be hiding in Mozambique a closer place to his home in Dangamvura in Mutare and also ruled out other social media reports which speculated that Tsvito was a security detail for Prophet Makandiwa or Prophet Magaya saying he was just a waiter.
“Whatever is being posted on social media are all lies. I’m the one who reported the matter to the police and I’m well informed of the circumstances.
“If there are any latest developments on the hunt for this murderer, I’ll be the first to be in the know,” Makore said.
Tsvito, after allegedly murdering his wife, stayed in the room with his three-year-old daughter as well as the decomposing body.
Contrary to social media reports that Tsvito committed suicide by jumping from a bridge after a police chase as seen on a circulating video, the fugitive is alive and still on the run.
Makore and South African Police Service’s (SAPS) officer (name withheld) handling the case confirmed that the man seen in the video is not Tsvito.
