Harare man who kills wife in front of kids, commits suicide


A 48-year-old man who allegedly axed his wife to death in Harare has committed suicide in Beitbridge after failing to skip the border to South Africa.

It is reported that on September 27, Tinashe Ruzaya Paunosvisva of the Ushewokunze area in Harare killed his wife Ronah Masango with an axe while their two minor children watched.

After that, he escaped to Beitbridge en-route to South Africa and later committed suicide at the Lutumba Business Centre, some 20km before Beitbridge town along the Masvingo road, after failing to jump the border.

The police officer commanding the Beitbridge district, Chief Superintendent Tichaona Nyongo confirmed the incident today.
“He was wanted in connection with a case of murder at Southlea Park in Harare,” he said.

“The man’s body was found lying by the roadside at Lutumba Business Centre by a passer-by who informed the police. A search was done leading to the discovery of a suicide note in his pocket.”

Paunosvisva wrote in the suicide note that had his wife listened to him, they could still be together.
