Shock as husband killer runs amok, bashes own mother with mutswi and leaves her for dead


A MASVINGO woman who is facing murder charges for killing her husband in cold blood and is out on bail, last week pounded her mother with a pestle and left her for dead.

Mavis Madenga (34) of Mushayi Village under Chief Mugabe, allegedly struck Ms Rosemary Kutadza (52) accusing the latter of neglecting her. Ms Kutadza was rushed to Morgenster Mission Hospital where she was transferred to Masvingo General Hospital after her condition deteriorated. She is in critical condition.

Madenga’s brazen attack on her mother comes hardly a year after she was arrested and arraigned before the courts for allegedly axing her husband Joseph Marisa to death before setting his body on fire.

Mavis allegedly told investigators that she committed the crime because she could not bear his silence after he discovered she was cheating.

“He should have at least shouted at me,” she allegedly said.

The couple had allegedly argued after Madenga admitted to a prophet at Saint John Apostolic Sect Church that she had slept with six men outside her marriage.
