A Mutare Cheating man fell from 4th floor


A SAKUBVA man died after he fell off from the fourth floor of Matida Flats while wrestling with his married lover’s husband early Sunday morning.

It is alleged that Tawanda Chirenje (25) had caught the now deceased Gift Saungweme (40) in a compromising position with his estranged wife, Phillipa Dariyani (25), in a friend’s apartment.


Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Nobert Muzondo confirmed that the police are on the hunt for Chirenje who took the law into his own hands and pushed Saungweme off a fourth floor window at Matida Hostel as they wrestled.

“Chirenje had caught Dariyani drinking beer with Saungweme in a friend’s apartment. He assaulted her with the flat side of a machete, booted feet and fists and proceeded to assault Saungweme.

They wrestled towards an open window and as they wrestled, Saungweme fell off the window from the fourth floor. He sustained head injuries and died on Monday morning.

“We are treating the matter as a murder incident as the circumstances are all pointing that way. As the police, we urge people not to take the law into their own hands and not to use violence when such matters arise,” said Inspector Muzondo.

When The Manica Post visited the scene on Monday, Dariyani’s friends revealed that she is a sex worker who had offered her services to the now deceased, with her husband catching them red handed.

During our visit to Matida Hostels, we leant that Dariyami had just been picked by the police for questioning while Chirenje was reported to have disappeared shortly after Saungweme’s fall from the building.

In an interview with The Manica Post, Dariyami’s friend, Shallon Maisera, in whose apartment the two lovebirds were caught red handed, said she had been drinking with Dariyami and Saungweme at the bar that night before they decided to go to her apartment.
