A 26-year- old woman from Gokwe is recovering at home after she was allegedly shot on the leg by her husband following a misunderstanding over a missing $600.

Ms Joyce Ngwenya of Mudundu Village under Chief Nemangwe was rushed to hospital after she was allegedly shot by her agitated husband, Tapiwa Manyoka last Wednesday. She was treated and discharged.

Acting police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende said she was still to get more details from police in Gokwe.

Chief Nemangwe said the argument that led to the shooting incident arose after part of the money the couple was keeping in the house went missing.

“The information I got was that the couple was keeping a sum of $1 200 in their bedroom hut when the wife discovered that half of it was missing. The two usually do business together which include selling maize and goats. So they had saved cash amounting to $1 200,” said Chief Nemangwe.

He said on the day in question, the wife discovered that $600 was missing and she confronted her husband about it.

“They started pointing fingers and an argument ensued,” said Chief Nemangwe.
He said when the wife threatened to quit the marriage over the missing money, the accused took a gun which he kept in their wardrobe and shot her once on the leg.

“A neighbour rushed to me to report the matter but I told them that it was a police case. The police were alerted leading to Manyoka’s arrest,” said Chief Nemangwe. sunday news
