IN a shocking show of brutality, an unknown assailant allegedly mugged and fatally stabbed a Buhera nurse at her doorstep, plunging the Nerutanga community into deep mourning recently.

The incident happened in Mangwanya Village under Chief Nerutenga in Buhera.

Acting Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Wiseman Chinyoka confirmed the brutal incident, and identified the defenceless victim as Ms Ivy Mangwanya (40), a nurse who was stationed at Nerutanga Clinic in Buhera.

She was allegedly accosted and murdered on her doorstep as she returned from Masvingo.

The suspect allegedly stabbed her with a sharp object, and left her to bleed to death as he vanished from the scene into the darkness with US$50.

Assistant Inspector Chinyoka appealed to members of the public with information leading to the arrest of the suspect to contact their nearest police station.

“I can confirm a tragic incident that occurred on April 28 in Mangwanya Village under Chief Nerutenga in Buhera, when a local nurse, Ms Ivy Mangwanya who had just arrived from Masvingo, was stabbed on the throat with a sharp object by an unknown assailant. The suspect snatched a Vodacom cellphone and bag containing various clothes and vanished from the scene, leaving the victim to bleed to death,” he said.

Assistant Inspector Chinyoka said Ms Mangwanya lost a lot of blood as she screamed for help.

She later got late help from one Zivanai from the same village, who rushed to the scene and found her gasping for air.

Ms Mangwanya died before Zivanai could rush her to hospital.

 

A report was made at ZRP Buhera and police attended the scene.

“A bag, suspected to be the one that had been stolen from Ms Magwanya was recovered with some clothes. The deceased’s body was taken to Murambinda Mission Hospital for a post-mortem. The suspect is still at large, and we are appealing to the public with information pertaining to the whereabouts of the unknown suspect to report to any nearest police station,” said Assistant Inspector Chinyoka.
