A Zimbabwe woman has been arrested after she offered a man sex so he could kill a police officer she had problems with.
A 27-year-old Zimbabwe woman, Siphathisiwe Ncube, has been arrested and charged to court for paying one Kumele Ncube, with sex to kill Constable Pushmore Gwasira, after the police officer collected his girlfriend’s stolen phone from her, reports Chronicle.
The officer barely managed to escape death after being axed on the forehead by Ncube, a court heard.
It was reported that Ncube and Siphathisiwe, both shopkeepers at the Madlambuzi Business Centre, appeared before Bulawayo regional magistrate Sibongile Msipa-Marondedze facing attempted murder charges where they both pleaded not guilty and Magistrate Msipa-Marondedze remanded them in custody till January 26 where the case would be heard.
The prosecutor, Concilia Ncube, told the court that on September 29, 2015, Gwasira who is stationed at ZRP Madlambuzi, visited his girlfriend who works at a liquor store.
“Gwasira’s girlfriend told him that Siphathisiwe was in possession of her stolen phone. He then approached Siphathisiwe and recovered the cellphone from her.
However, Siphathisiwe was not happy with the way the cellphone was taken from her and she then approached Ncube and told him that she had planned to kill Gwasira and recover back the cellphone.
Siphathisiwe then offered to have sex with Ncube for him to assist her to execute her plan.
The two had intercourse once in the hardware shop. Ncube then proceeded to the bottle store and called Gwasira to Siphathisiwe’s shop on the pretext that they wanted to talk over the issue of the phone.
Immediately upon entering the shop, Ncube closed the door, picked up a knobkerrie and struck Gwasira twice on both knees and he fell to the floor. Siphathisiwe then came with a small axe which she used to strike Gwasira twice on the forehead and he became unconscious.
Thinking they had killed the police officer, the suspects took some clothes and cleaned up the blood gushing out of Gwasira’s wound. They allegedly lifted Gwasira’s motionless body and dumped him beside a toilet.
Gwasira was later found lying in a pool of blood and was taken to hospital for treatment. The matter was reported to Madlambuzi and investigations were carried leading to the pair’s arrest," the prosecutor told the court.
The court heard that Ncube again demanded sex as token of appreciation and his wish was granted.
