By Staff Reporter
A SERVING Zimbabwe National Army junior officer on Sunday night ran amok, shooting his wife dead and also directing the gun on his mother-in-law whom he left nursing bullet wounds.
Aaron Mlambo committed the shock offence on his wife, Evelyn Precious Madawu and her mother in Chitungwiza’s Manyame suburb on Sunday midnight using what witnesses say was an AK47 rifle.
The wife died on the spot while her mother is receiving treatment at Chitungwiza hospital.
The couple is said to have decided to terminate its relationship due to endless marital problems with the now deceased wife having decided to return to her parents’ Chitungwiza home where the tragic incident happened.
