A 27-year-old woman killed her husband in Marimba, Harare after he disappeared from home for three days and failed to give a satisfactory answer.
The woman, Rachel Gomba, has since been arrested for fatally stabbing her husband, Paddy Mangisa Mlambo (27) with a kitchen knife.
The incident occurred on Sunday around 6am when Mlambo had returned home.
It is alleged that Gomba questioned him about where he was but he failed to give a satisfactory explanation, resulting in a heated argument.
He was stabbed with a kitchen knife once on the thigh and later died.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident.
