Masvingo residents got yet another shock this week when remains of a woman in an advanced state of decomposition were found along Mucheke River on Wednesday morning barely 500 meters from the CBD.
The remains were found a day after the almost lifeless body of a taxi driver was found in a bush next to Masvingo Teachers’ College. The driver died minutes after admission to hospital.
Police spokesperson Charity Mazula has confirmed the story to The Mirror and appealed to members of the public with a missing relative to visit Masvingo Central Police Station.
Some people suspect that the woman was raped before she was murdered as her bra was found by the side of the remains. There was also a green t-shirt and khaki shorts. The state of decomposition was so advanced that the ribs were exposed and the teeth were falling off, according to a Police document.
The Mirror is informed that the body was found by Arigary Madavu (44) who was walking into town through Chimusana Bridge. Efforts to get hold of Madavu were fruitless.
