Man Commits Suicide After Fighting With Wife

A 48-year-old man committed suicide following a misunderstanding with his 23-year-old wife.

It was confirmed that the incident occurred on 3 March at about 10am in Lusulu, Zimbabwe.

"Innocent Tshuma (48) had a misunderstanding with his 23-year-old wife, Noster Ncube, which resulted in her fleeing to her aunt's home," said Insp Dube.

He said Tshuma followed his wife in a bid to reconcile with her but the aunt refused to allow her niece to return to the matrimonial home.

"Tshuma was later found by his daughter hanging in a hut with a wire around his neck," said Insp Dube.

A report was made to Lusulu Police Station which attended the scene. Insp Dube said people should engage a third party to assist in resolving disputes instead of resorting to violence or committing suicide. He further said no foul play was suspected in the incident and a post mortem was waived by Binga magistrate, Mrs Stephen Ndlovu.
