In a leaked audio that has been circulating on social media, Ximex Mall dealer Boss Pangolin, real name Tafadzwa Russel Murengwa, admits to shooting his girlfriend Samantha Dzapata.
According to the leaked audio, Boss Pangolin describes their relationship as rocky on and off, marred by cheating and physical abuse.
He claims Samantha broke up with him in January, but he went out of his way to persuade her to reconsider, and they rekindled their love. Pangolin can be heard saying:
Ukuona muna January, Samantha akandiramba. Andiramba ndokubva ndazomudzokerera musi was 3 March ndichitoona kuti time yakureba tichinetsana. Ndokubva ndaenda kwaanga ari paya paya ku Beitbridge. Mhamha vake ndokubva vataura naye vakati aiwa no gadzirisanai ndokubva tagadzirisana paye paye.
He said not long after they rekindled their romance, Samantha received a call from an unknown person. Boss Pangolin said Samantha did not answer the call and when he asked for her phone she refused. He said he hacked her phone and discovered that she was cheating with a married man.
Boss Pangolin said his now deceased girlfriend Samantha took him to court after he assaulted her. The shocking revelation came after he confessed to shooting his girlfriend. He said he had no intention of shooting her.
Boss Pangolin claimed he had gone to Samantha’s place of residence to collect the money that amounted to more than US$2000 that he was owed.
In the leaked audio Boss Pangolin said he only shot her after she started throwing stones at him. He said:
Saka pandozosvika pa gedhi pavo manje ndanga ndasvika pa road pana Simon Mazorodze. Ndamuona ane ka munin’ina kake kaye kaye ka Cathy vari two. Ndopandabva ndati Samantha zvirikufamba sei?
Wakandiramba kuti udanane nemurume wemunhu here? Horaiti chindiudza kuti urikuita sei nezvemari? Abva atanga kumhanya achikanda kanda matombo. Ndopandabva ndatoti imbomira Samantha.

He said after the shooting he drove to Mazowe and then went to Bindura to collect a few things from someone. Boss Pangolin said he left home telling people that he will not return on the pretence that he had gotten a job in China. He said was planning to leave Zimbabwe by skipping the border.
