Father throws kids into fire over wife’s ‘infidelity’



MASVINGO – A-28- year-old man from Batanai Village, Chief Mazhetese in Mwenezi allegedly threw his two kids into a fire after a misunderstanding with his wife whom he accused of infidelity.
The two girls suffered severe burns.
Watipaishe Gumbo (28) has since been arrested, according to Masvingo Provincial Police Spokesperson Insp Kudakwashe Dhewa.

Gumbo argued with Molivin Moyo (19) when he came home drunk and accused Moyo of having an extra marital affair with some men in the village. He assaulted his wife while his daughters were sleeping.
Moyo fled the house after Gumbo threatened to strike her with a machete leaving the kids aged six and three in the house. Gumbo declared that the kids were not his biological children and he made a fire and threw them into the blazing flames.

The children scurried away but Gumbo would allegedly catch and throw them back into the fire. Moyo alerted Gumbo’s brother Ronias Gumbo (43) who came and rescued the children.
The children were taken to Neshuro District Hospital and their conditions are said to be critical.https://masvingomirror.com/
