Tragedy As Drunk Couple Burns To Death

A reportedly drunk Nyamandlovu couple was burnt to death on Friday night after a hut they were sleeping in caught fire.

Sunday News reports that the deceased were identified as Adelaide Tshuma, 48, and her husband only identified as Sibanda.

According to some sources who spoke to the publication, the couple was heavily intoxicated since they spent the afternoon consuming alcoholic beverages.

Matabeleland North Provincial Affairs and Devolution Minister Richard Moyo described the incident as tragic.

Umguza DCC chairman Paul Mthimkulu said he had been in communication with police and said the family had been granted permission to bury the deceased.

“There was no need for a post mortem as the bodies were burnt beyond recognition so the families are busy with burial preparations as I speak. We hear that these people had been to a drinking spot where they spent the day,” he said.

He then called upon communities to adhere to lockdown restrictions.

A neighbour Mbiseleni Ndlovu said the hut was up in flames when he and other neighbours attempted to save the deceased.

“After getting there, the flames were just too much and unfortunately they had already consumed Mdawini and his wife and only charred remains of their bodies could be salvaged from the fire.”

The couple is survived by four children.

In other news, iHarare had reported that a bogus police officer has been arrested after he and other two accomplices who are currently on the run demanded US$80 bribe from a motorist accusing him of breaching Covid-19 regulations.

Leon Mukunga appeared before Harare magistrate Judith Taruvinga on Friday charged with impersonation and extortion.

The matter was rolled over to 23 August for bail application.
