A Bulawayo man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after murdering his wife and forcing their young children to sleep beside her dead body.

Bambanani Ndlovu was convicted by Bulawayo High Court judge Evangelista Kabasa, who condemned his actions as a horrific example of gender-based violence. Ndlovu’s defence, claiming he acted in self-defence when his wife, Happiness Ngwenya, allegedly grabbed his testicles during an argument, was rejected by the court.

The tragic incident occurred following a dispute over Ndlovu’s late return home. In a fit of rage, Ndlovu strangled Ngwenya in front of their two young children. He then made them sleep with their mother’s corpse, further traumatizing the minors.
