Man on the run after suspected murder of wife

A Harare man (name withheld) is on the run following the grisly murder of his 39 year old wife, Isabel Masuka.

Masuka, was found dead at her place of residence by her parents in Waterfalls on the eve of April 19, 2013.

A family spokesperson who refused to be identified told The Zimbabwean that the deceased suffered extensive head injuries but her husband is the only one who knows what happened on the fateful night.

Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba referred all questions to Inspector Tedius Chibanda, who was not aware of the murder as he is out of town on national duty.

Said the family spokesperson: “I am at a loss of words but whatever happened, her husband is better placed to tell us who killed her but he is nowhere to be found since Saturday.”

Neighbours claimed the couple was experiencing marital problems and quarreled often, adding that the husband used a fire extinguisher to attack his wife.

The deceased, who was a third year student at the Women’s University in Africa worked at the National Blood Services Zimbabwe and she had been recently promoted to a higher position in the human resources department.

She was laid to rest at Glen Forest cemetery in Harare. Masuka is survived by two children aged 15 and 9.
