John Phiri, together with his alleged girlfriend Lenia Sikhosana died from wounds they sustained after an angry Sandy Matava caught the two lovebirds in the act before she beat them up with a log. Midlands police spokesperson could not be reached for comment but information gathered by Sunday News indicated that Matava got wind of the two’s adulter0us affair before trapping them.
A police officer, who could not be named, said on the day around midnight, Matava received information that her husband was at Sikhosana’s house.
On the day in question, the two lovebirds had gone to Sikhosana’s residence situated at Empress Compound in Zhombe.
“Matava armed herself with a wooden log and forcibly gained entry into the house where she found the two making Iove,” said the police source.
Out of anger, the police officer said, she allegedly attacked the two lovebirds several times with a log all over their bodies.
Both Phiri and Sikhosana sustained fractured arms, deep cuts on the head and swollen bodies, the officer said.
Phiri reportedly died at the house while Sikhosana, who passed out during the beating, was rushed to Sidakeni Clinic before she was transferred to Kwekwe General Hospital where she died upon admission.
The two bodies are at Kwekwe General Hospital where they are awaiting post-mortem. Matava was later arrested and the case is reported at ZRP Zhombe under case number RRB 3343390.
