“Police is investigating a case of suspected murder in which a 24-year-old female was found dead in her Chitungwiza house.
“. . . the now deceased had a quarrel with her 34-year-old husband over a used co_ndom that she found in one of her husband’s pockets whilst doing laundry,” Chief Sup Nyathi said.
He said the deceased was found under the bed with a string around her neck while there was blood oozing from her mouth.
Lisa Mbito who is the deceased’s younger sister said her sister had found a used co_ndom in Sibert’s pocket leading to a quarrel.
“On Friday, my sister found a used co_ndom in his pair of trousers while doing their laundry and she was very furious because it was not their first time fighting over cheating issues,” said
“They came home around midnight, arguing and shouting at each other.
“At some point, my sister called me but I ignored them and went to sleep.
“I never entered their bedroom till Sunday because I had not seen both of them since their altercation and when I got in, there was a strong stench,” she added.
Lisa said she called her other sister to help her clean the room and get rid of the stench.
“We cleaned the whole room trying to get rid of the smell till we looked under the bed only to find my sister’s body underneath,” she said.After killing his wife, Sibert is said to have visited a friend looking for money and told people there that he had killed someone.
“I heard that on Saturday he went to collect money from his friend in Unit C and told everyone there that he had killed someone but no one took him seriously.
“Since then, no one knows about his whereabouts,” Lisa said.
Sibert is said to have been someone with a weird character and even his wife did not understand him.
“Wendy would always complain saying that her hubby had a strange character.
“Sometimes she would wake up and find him staring at her, he would have strange nightmares, walk during sleep or even jump from nowhere.
“At one point, she found some juju in her pillow and he claimed that it saved him from some money-related rituals that he had performed before,” said Priscilla Mujokoro, an aunt.
Sibert and Wendy had been together for over a year and had a rocky relationship because of cheating.
“He would give her money and tell her to drink beer whenever they argued about his infidelity issues and we had all grown used to it.
“That same Friday, he gave her money to go and drink at Chikwanha,” said Lisa.
Wendy’s family is still awaiting post-mortem results.
