A 30-year old Mutorashanga man has been slapped with an effective 18 years imprisonment after the High Court found him guilty of murdering his wife with constructive intent in 2010.

Norman Arumando will now spend the next 18 years at a correctional facility for having killed his wife Mercy Chakwesha on the 23rd of May, 2010.

Arumando was accusing his wife of infidelity.

At the end of the trial, it was proved that while at Landfall Farm in Mutorashanga, Arumando confronted his wife accusing her of flirting with a stranger before assaulting her with a stick.

He is also alleged to have burnt her at the back with a glowing log of fire wood. Chakwesha died on her way to a local clinic.

Passing down sentence, Justice Hlekani Mwayera noted that even though the court was aware that the accused had spent three years in custody before the end of his trial, his actions during the commission of the crime were brutal and are testimony that he is of a violent disposition, adding that only a lengthy term of imprisonment would suffice to send him on the mend.




During the official opening ceremony of the 2013 judicial year, Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku expressed the judiciary's concern over increased cases of murder related to trivial causes.

He indicated that in 2013 alone, the High Court will deal with forty murder cases most of which are related to domestic disputes.
