Zim man who murdered a South African and ate his heart in court today


A man who is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend's lover and eating his heart is expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrate's Court today.

Andrew "Master Benson" Chimbozo, 35, a Zimbabwean living in Langa was said to have visited the house where ex-girlfriend Nomonde Soloshe was living with her current partner in June. The pair allegedly chatted together before he gave her money to buy liquor and she left.

Dreadlocked Chimbozo walked up from the holding cells neatly dressed in a beige coat.

A hulk of a man, he glanced momentarily across the public gallery benches before facing magistrate Keith le Keur.

He had plaster on the bridge of his nose and on his left eyebrow.

Earlier, police said Manona's attacker had cut out his heart and eaten it with a knife and fork.

Manona's partner, Nomonde Tshabalala, 59, who had been living with him for three years, said the suspect had visited the couple and handed her R50 to buy liquor at a nearby shebeen.

When she returned she was told by their tenant not to enter as it was "a mess."
