“My wife closed the shop at few minutes to 8.00p.m. and was strolling down to the house when she was attacked by two men, who initially tried to snatch her hand bag containing money for the entire sales for the day was but she held strongly onto it.
In the process, they hit her on her belly and she fell to the ground and the robbers took off with her hand bag."
"I was coming back from work at that same time. What I heard was the cry of pain and call for help, I rushed to where she was, picked her up and rushed her to the hospital where she died.
We had two children and was due to deliver later this month."
