GWERU – A girl from Gweru, Tariro Shumba (21) was st_abbed and killed with a knife by her stepfather while trying to persuade the latter from assaulting her mother.

The incident happened at Mataga area at around 9pm on Sunday and Police are looking for the suspect who is at large.

Midlands Province Acting Police Spokesperson Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende confirmed the incident to The Mirror.

The accused is Aaron Moyo (44) of Maromo Village, Chief Mataga in Mberengwa and the deceased’s mother is Colletta Ncube.

“I can confirm that on March 17, 2019 at around 9pm Moyo stabbed his stepdaughter with a kitchen knife and she died on the spot”, said Mukwende.

Sources said the suspect came back home and found his wife sleeping in their bedroom as usual and he woke her

up and ordered her to leave the bedroom. He told the wife to go and sleep with her daughter but did not state the reason why,” said Mukwende

Ncube did not dispute or question her husband’s orders, so she left the bedroom but Moyo allegedly followed her holding a knife and now asked her to leave their homestead.

The incident woke up the deceased and she tried to calm the accused but he got more aggressive, picked up a log and started to beat the deceased all over the body.

The deceased and the mother ran away but Moyo followed and caught up with the deceased and allegedly stabbed her twice before he fled from the scene.
A report was made to the Police.
