28 May 2021

By A Correspondent- A female GeoScience Lecturer in the Faculty of Mining Engineering at the Midlands State University, Rutendo Tafirenyika, was on Tuesday involved in a street fight at Mandava shopping centre in Zvishavane over a Harare based boyfriend only identified as Fanuel.

The Lecturer is also the Vice President of Midlands State University Lecturers Association (MSULA).

According to the source who requested anonymity the lecturer and the woman who she engaged with were friends before the lecturer snatched her boyfriend.

The woman who could be seen on the receiving end of the video that went viral was only identified as Prisca who runs a saloon and is a well-known hairdresser specialising in manicure and pedicure.

It is alleged the hairdresser and her boyfriend broke up and her friend Tafirenyika who recently divorced her husband fell for the boyfriend.

This did not go down well with the hairdresser who confronted her friend over the affair. A heated exchange ensued on WhatsApp until the two met on Tuesday leading to a serious fight which left the hairdresser nursing some injuries.

Members of the public could be seen on the video trying to intervene and stop the fight.

Social media is awash with the videos and pictures of the street fight, with some members of the public condemning the kind of public indecency displayed by the lecturer, which they say should not be permitted in her profession, given her standing in the community.
