Midlands Police Spokesperson Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko said the now deceased died upon admission at hospital after the attack.

“Wadzongwa had a misunderstanding with her husband Mhlanga as the husband was accusing her of misusing funds after she bought a bag using money which was meant for groceries. Mhlanga assaulted her using a hoe and bricks all over the body and left her lying unconscious,” said Inspector Mahoko.

Villagers tried to rush Wadzongwa to hospital but she died upon admission.
