- The shooting at Bensam Flats in the early hours of Friday has been the talk of Gweru since Friday.
THE landlord at Bensam Flats in Gweru CBD — where a local businessman Peter Dube shot four and killed two people — has kicked out the victims’ families.
Dube (35) is on the run after allegedly shooting and killing his second wife’s alleged lover, Shelton Chinhango, also a car dealer based in Kwekwe and Gamuchirai Mudungwe (30) of Gweru.
He also allegedly shot and injured his second wife, Nyasha Nharingo (31) and her sister Nyaradzo (34).
Tenants at Bensam Flats told a local publication that Nyasha Nharingo’s family has been kicked out of the flat.
She is admitted to Gweru Provincial Hospital where her condition is said to be stable as she is out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and is recuperating in a female surgical ward.
Her sister was supposed to be operated on last night to remove a bullet lodged in her head.
“The landlord came last night and ordered Nyasha’s family out. He was in no nonsense mood. Nyasha was already planning to vacate the flat which Peter Dube was renting for her. We don’t know where they went but it was bad,” said a fellow tenant on condition of anonymity.
Nyaradzo’s 16-year-old daughter, who witnessed the horrific incident said she and her cousin, a toddler, who is Dube’s son with Nyasha, survived death by a whisker after he attempted to fire the gun at them only to be restrained by Mudungwe.
Dube allegedly committed the ruthless crime as his first wife watched in horror.
The shooting at Bensam Flats in the early hours of Friday has been the talk of Gweru since Friday.
Meanwhile Mudungwe is supposed to be buried at Senga cemetery in Gweru this morning according to family spokesperson Percy Dzuka.
“We are expecting Gamu’s body today from Bulawayo where it had been taken for post-mortem after which we will take it to Nyaradzo for burial preparations tomorrow (today) at Senga cemetery,” he said. ■
