Man axes 16-year-old wife 3 times

A 21-YEAR-OLD man from Bulilima struck his 16-year-old ex-wife with an axe three times after he saw her with another man.

Nevious Moyo, who is employed as a general hand at Stretton Farm Compound in Figtree area, allegedly armed himself with an axe and struck Sisasenkosi Ndebele inflicting serious injuries on her leg, arm and back before fleeing from the scene.

Moyo appeared on initial remand before Plumtree magistrate Gideon Ruvetsa facing attempted murder charges and was remanded in custody to May 31.

Prosecuting, Elisha Mazorodze said Moyo ambushed Ndebele and left her for dead after the attack.

“On 8 May, Moyo met Ndebele while she was with her boyfriend and he confronted her on why she was with him. Ndebele dismissed the confrontation after pointing out that she and Moyo were now separated,” he said.

“At around 6PM, Ndebele and her sister were on their way home from a well where they had gone to fetch water.

“They came across Moyo who emerged from behind a bush armed with an axe. Moyo struck his ex-wife with the axe three times and then hit her several times with the axe handle. Ndebele’s sister rushed home during the attack and alerted her mother.” Copyright © Africa 24 News. All rights reserved.
