Horror as madala (77) strikes son (36) with axe following a misunderstanding


Police in Mashonaland East Province have arrested Titus Bhunga (77) for allegedly assaulting his son Washington (36) with an axe following a misunderstanding.

It is reported that the misunderstanding arose when Bhunga bought beer for Washington’s wife Netsai Kanerutsine.

This did not go down well with Washington who quizzed his father over the issue.

It is alleged that the two engaged in an argument which eventually turned into a physical fight.

Allegations are that Bhunga then grabbed an axe which was hung in one of the rooms and struck his son on the forehead, stomach, shoulder and back.

Police spokesperson for Mashonaland East Province Inspector Simon Chazovachiyi confirmed the incident.

“On February 28, 2024, at around 8 am, Washington’s wife Netsai reported the matter at ZRP Sadza and police officers attended the scene and arrested Titus Bhunga,” he said.

Inspector Chazovachiyi said Washington sustained deep cuts on the face and the stomach and was referred to Sadza District Hospital where he was admitted and is in a serious condition.

He said investigations into the matter were in progress.
