A Zimbabwean mother, Perseverance Ncube, was found with a stab wound in Greater Manchester in the United Kingdom. Sky News reports that her two young children found her dying. She was taken to the hospital but sadly died from her injuries.
The police in Greater Manchester have arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of murder. The incident occurred in Little Hulton, near Salford. It appears to be a targeted attack as the victim was known to the suspect. Perseverance Ncube’s family said she was a devoted mother who lived for her children. Her family said in a statement:
It is with immense pain that we say goodbye to Perseverance Ncube, also known as Percy to her loved ones.
She was a loving and devoted mother who lived for her children, family, and friends.
Percy had just celebrated her 35th birthday in October, and her passing has left us with an immeasurable sense of loss.
Our focus now is on supporting her children as they continue their journey without their mother.
