Tawanda Mahohoma next to Ms Brilliant Ngwenya’s body

Whinsley Masara, Chronicle Reporter
A NURSE based in Nkayi district, Matabeleland North province, was allegedly murdered by her married lover after she ended their five-year adulterous relationship.

Tawanda Mahohoma (50) used an iron bar to assault Ms Brilliant Ngwenya (33) all over the body and thereafter bashed her head several times with a brick. She died on the spot.

The incident occurred at around 4PM on Tuesday outside Ms Ngwenya’s house at Nkayi Business Centre.

Matabeleland North police spokesperson Inspector Siphiwe Makonese confirmed the murder.

“I can confirm that we received a report of murder. A woman was struck several times all over her body with some object. She was also bashed several times on the head with a brick until she died. Police have since arrested the suspect and he is expected to appear in court soon to answer to murder charges,” she said.

Insp Makonese urged members of the public to desist from engaging in violence to resolve disputes.

“People need to learn to resolve their differences amicably without resorting to violence. As police we are worried that despite all these warnings, people still attack each other resulting in deaths. People should engage the police, church elders or family members to assist in resolving disputes as opposed to resorting to violence,” she said.

A source close to Ms Ngwenya said the two had allegedly been in a relationship for about five years.

The source said on the fateful day, Mahohoma visited Ms Ngwenya at around 4pm.

Ms Ngwenya, a trained nurse from Hwange district, got a job in May this year and was deployed to Nkayi district.

Mahohoma’s Tuesday visit was the second in less than a week after he visited Ms Ngwenya mid last week and that is when she informed him that they could not continue with the affair because she had established that he was married.

Mahohoma is said to have turned violent prompting Ms Ngwenya to seek a peace order which she was granted.

On Saturday, Mahohoma returned to his family which is in Hwange town only to return on Tuesday when he allegedly murdered Ms Ngwenya.

The source said Ms Ngwenya was about to leave her house when she met Mahohoma who then attacked her without saying a word. He allegedly assaulted her all over the body with an iron bar before bashing her head several times with a brick and she died on the spot.

Nkayi District Medical Officer Dr Thabani Moyo said Ms Ngwenya had just knocked off when she was murdered.

“We are told a passerby tried to intervene but Mahohoma was too powerful for him. Seeing that he wouldn’t back off, the passerby rushed to the police station and reported the matter. By the time police arrived, Mahohoma had fled from the scene.

Police however caught up with him while looking for lifts along Nkayi Road and arrested him,” said Dr Moyo.

He said Ms Ngwenya was undergoing an induction at Nkayi district hospital before moving to Fansoni Council Clinic where she had been deployed.

Members of staff close to Ms Ngwenya said they saw Mahohoma whom they knew as her boyfriend earlier on the fateful day carrying a metal bar saying he was looking for Ms Ngwenya.

They said at one time they spotted him drinking beer at a bar at Nkayi Business Centre.

    mahohoma was supposed to let go since he has a wife than to commit murder, ejele uzakukwanisa khona kunzima kanjalo, may be the work colleagues should have become suspicious of someone looking for someone carrying a metal bar that he was up to no good and alerted the Police or the woman should have approached sekuru Bhanda during the time of the issuance of the peace order. nxa kade ebona ukuthi umuntu ulobugebenga

Its not fair ooohh .Although we do not condone such behaviour from man ,women should also not fall in love for the purpose of financial gains. Man should also accept divorce and move on .System Tazvida once said anodyiwa haataure manyepo anozozvifunga kana achinge azorambwa. Kana warambwa usawanza bopoto

    he has committed the crime whilst wearing a t shirt that has a Zimbabwe coat of arms that features two kudus standing on top of a mound of wheat, cotton and maize and the motto, Unity, Freedom, Work. Surely Mahohoma you should be ashamed of your self.Where is the respect of womens rights

  • libertyatliberty

    Njabulo.libertyatliberty at gmail dot com.What this man did is despicable .How could he brutally murder someone like that.Even putting him behind the bars will not bring justice to what he did.If only he had assaulted her and left her alive,that could have been better.Its not right to take another’s life.I feel pity for the parents and relatives of the deceased.Anyway may her soul rest in peace.

    • ras

      her parents passed away in 2010, her mum was blind at the time of her passing on, she was the only one left in Zimbabwe her two sisters are in SA and her cousin brother is in Australia

    there is a price for every seed sown

    • Zvinochererwa Padzairimwa

      sure, well said

  • Essexvale

    To a large degree, the deceased is to blame for the tragedy. The report says that she was in a 5 year adulterous affair with the accused. Therein lies the crux of the matter. The moral of this story? Stay away from relationships with married persons. It’s that simple !!

    • makhosi

      Shallow thinking adultery is not the cause for sure!! This guy is simply an animal without regard to life

      • Essexvale

        Indeed; yet there is a good probability that nuggets of wisdom can be recovered from the shallow depths. Anyway; what is so shallow concerning my take on the logical factor which points to jealousy on the part of the adulterous partner of the deceased as the prime cause of the murder? Given this fact, you might want to revise your claim of “shallow thinking” to that of “simple logic”.

        • makhosi

          The word “adultery” is used simply becoz the guy was married. It has nothing to do with the murder. If indeed it was the case all adulterous relationships would be dangerous. We are not condoning adultery but merely emphasizing that it wasn’t the cause for murder.
          Go for shallow nuggets we prefer deeper ones.

      • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

        you two homos get tf off

    • owayengekho

      she was leaving him so that she turns a new leaf how could she have continued with a married man, it was right for her to repent and yet the man could not let go peacefully he just couldnt think of a life without her

  • Concerned Citizen

    The Mat North and Bulawayo Province Police spokespersons are commented for always being available to say something valuable on crimes committed within their jurisdictions. Quintillion thanx inpectors Makonese and Simango. You vindicate why women should be empowered moe than man. Empower a woman you empower a nation. Empower a man you empower a beerhall. Their Southern Province counterpart who is always unavailable for comment should take a cue. Let noone doubt that the women are on top of the situation far ahead of men. Officer Phil must wake up!

    • Welaz

      I wish Inspector Simango was on top of me! They must promote her to commissioner!

      • afraid

        you will be harmed by her husband if he sees her on top of you kkkkkkkk think of guys like oricious

  • Ntokazi

    There is really no way she NEVER knew he was married! 5 years? Soze!

    • Mollyn Ntombi Nyamhuno

      U can say dat again date some for 5yrs n never know weather hez married or not lie

      • moyoza

        especially a 50 year old

  • nompu

    no one is allowed to take someone’s life he should face jail, how come others separated peacefully the chiwenga versus jocelyn , khaya moyo, chombo

  • Essexvale

    I’d like to revise my take on this story. I’d missed the part which says that the deceased wanted to end her affair with the accused because she’d discovered that he was married. Apologies to all concerned.
