On Tuesday around 19:20 hours, Moyo allegedly confronted his wife Meya Thole on why she wanted to move out of the house of which she responded that she was ready for anything.

This made the suspect to start beating his wife until 22 hours and that at around 05 hours yesterday, the deceased asked for water to drink from her son and later her niece noticed that her aunt was discharging white liquid from the mouth.
