MASVINGO – Police in Masvingo have arrested a Rujeko man for choking his girlfriend to death after accusing her of pushing him to accept responsibility of a pregnancy that was allegedly not his.
Owen Mateo (24) accused Faith Cheumbezvo (24) of Tsukukuviri Street, Rujeko B of sleeping with multiple partners.
Police Spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the matter to The Mirror adding that the incident happened on Tuesday night.
Mataga strangled Cheumbezvo.
Dhewa said that the two argued at Faith’s place as Owen refused to take responsibility for her pregnancy.
He said Owen strangled Faith in her sleep and went on to text her sister Promise and his father Vengai Mataga whom he informed that he had killed Faith over infidelity. He ran away from the homestead and yesterday bought poison at Rujeko B shops.
“Owen attempted suicide at Rujeko B shops yesterday after drinking poison and was rushed to Masvingo Provincial Hospital where he is battling for life,” he said.
