“We encourage people to solve their disputes or misunderstandings without taking one’s life,” said Dhewa.
On the fatefull day the two lovebirds reportedly visited Rachel’s friend Eugenia Mlambo (27) at around 2100 hours in the evening in Mpandawana village under Chief Mutukwa and proceeded to a bar called Pass Time Special bar for beer drinking.
After some few drinks, they all went home and along the way Zivakwa started accusing Mudonzvo of infidelity leading to a misunderstanding between the two.
Zivakwa then took a stone and hit Mudonzvo thrice on the right ear before disappearing into darkness.
Mudonzvo then went home before reporting the matter to police the following day.
Mudonzvo sustained a swollen right ear and went to Gutu Mission Hospital where she was admitted while waiting for the doctor.
