A 35-year-old athlete, Bertha Chimutu, a mother of three and athlete, who went on routine jogging session was ambushed during one such session close to new Ngoni service station in Zimbabwe.
It turned out that Nhamo Mafundera her 50-year-old ex-husband had been waiting there to ambush her and stabbed her multiple times.
She was immediately rushed to Norton Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries, however, she fingered her ex-husband as the attacker before she died.
The ex-husband attacked her while she was jogging with a colleague while passing by a bushy area between Ngoni Stadium and Ngoni service station.
Policemen and relatives of her rushed to the suspect’s house where he was arrested.
Nhamo was reportedly apprehended while making attempts to flee to South Africa. He is reportedly in police custody now and he was almost attacked by an angry mob trying to get justice.
Bertha’s family are quite popular as they own Journeyman Sports Bar, a joint in Katanga suburb.
Late Bertha and Nhamo had one child together and relocated to South Africa sometime last year.
However, their marriage broke down resulting in her returning home and Nhamo had been in Zimbabwe for a week before the murder.
