Police Officer Charged With Attempted Murder


The female Police Officer, identified as Yvonne Kufakunesu, who is based at Masvingo Central, allegedly attacked her husband Tachiwei Mutero of Faith Ministries International Church at their home in Westonlee, Mashava, on Wednesday last week.

An abusive ZRP female police officer based in the country’s oldest city has been arrested and caged on charges of attempted murder after she allegedly struck and injured her husband, a pastor, with a hoe handle. She also left him with severe injuries after scalding the man of God with heat.


According to The Mirror, Kufakunesu had four days earlier appeared in court to pour hot water on the pastor. Kufakunesu appeared before Chivi Magistrate Caroline Tafira on Tuesday February 16, 2020 and pleaded not guilty and was remanded in prison until March 2, 2021. The state was represented by Mildred Maenzanise.

Maenzanise said that on Wednesday last week, the complainant was preparing to go for a medical checkup for injuries sustained when his wife threw hot water on him. He entered the kitchen where he met Kufakunesu who was holding a hoe and she suddenly hit him with it several times on the left leg and the ribs vowing to kill him for reporting the first incident to Police.

Mutero was saved by neighbours who heard him crying out for help. Kufakunesu was granted RTGS$10 000 bail for the first offence. – zwnews
