Jealous rage ... Lover cut off girlfriend's wedding finger to stop

GWERU – A jealous man from Mberengwa has been jailed for 10 years after he chopped off his lover’s ring finger to ensure that she will not wear any other suitor’s ring.

Promise Moyo, 27, swore to Linnet Chihora, 25, that she was not going to put on any man’s ring after the latter announced her intention to call time on their relationship.

Moyo took a machete and chopped off Chihora’s finger. He also allegedly attempted to chop off the palm of her hand.

He was charged with attempted murder and he appeared before Regional Magistrate Phathekile Msipa.
