A close source revealed that she almost lost her eye due to the severity of the attack.

“I just received the information that our sister Linda Masarira is recovering from home after almost losing her eye due to GBV in the hands of her husband, Bongani Mlotshwa.

“This came after Linda found Bongani having sex with her 22-year-old daughter, Kupa. We condemn GBV,” an X user only identified as African Delinquent posted on the social media platform.

Linda Masarira seemingly confirmed the series of events, mentioning that she was assaulted after questioning what was happening.

“Woroverwa kuvhunza kuti chii chirikuitika pano wabata vanhu. Ndangoti Mwari itai kuda kwenyu ndega handigone” Linda Masarira shared without getting into detaails.

The incident has raised concerns about domestic violence and the need for support services for victims of abuse.

GBV support groups have been urged to stand up and request justice in the matter.

“GBV support groups must stand up and request justice on the matter. Bongani is currently at Hatfield police,” the source said.

Mlotshwa has since been arrested and is at Hatfield police station charged with domestic violence under RRB 5886197. He is expected to appear in court today (Monday).

Masarira’s daughter, Kupakwashe, has reportedly fled the family home, and her whereabouts are currently unknown.
