Steven Mandizvidza (35) of New stands Glenorah 7, was stabbed to death with a spear after an altercation with his ex-wife with whom he had divorced for four months.

According to a police memo, on 29 September 2021, Mandizvidza together with his friend visited his wife intending to see his daughter. Upon arrival, Mandizvidza and his ex-wife had a nasty argument with the now-deceased accusing his wife of giving police false information which got him arrested.

The argument reportedly degenerated into a fistfight, a point when the accused arrived and told Mandizvidza to stop assaulting his sister, but he persisted in assulting his wife. The accused and the now-deceased then started to fight with the accused disappearing in one of the rooms only to emerge armed with a spear.

The accused then unleashed terror at Mandizvidza by stabbing him once on the left side of the neck, and the deceased fell to the ground but he managed to uproot the spear. A neighbour tried to render first aid, but all in vain as Mandizvidza was bleeding profusely while lying on the ground.

The now-deceased was rushed to Marondera General Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival. The case was reported at Harrage ZRP base in Beatrice and police investigations are currently underway.

Mashonaland East provincial assistant police spokesperson, Misheck Denhere confirmed the development and appealed to the public for information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect.

“We are appealing to the members of the public for information that can lead to the arrest of the accused. “We also encourage members of the public to respect life and try to solve their disputes amicably by engaging the police or community elders. “Youths should learn to restrain themselves and good morals,” said Denhere.
