By A Correspondent- A bitter Mutasa man reportedly burnt his mother’s hut and proceeded to torch his in-laws’ hut after he was dumped by his wife.

The bitter man reduced his close relatives’ property to ashes as he demanded to get a refund for his lobola.

Knowledge Manhanga, 31, destroyed property worth $67 000. He appeared before Mutare magistrate Rumbidzai Kabasa and he was convicted on his own plea of guilty.

The State represented by Ann Chibvongodze proved that some time in July, Manhanga had a misunderstanding with his wife who then left for her parents’ homestead.

It was the State’s case that Manhanga accused his mother of conniving with his wife to desert him. While his mother was away, Manhanga went to his mother’s homestead in Domborutinhira Village and set her hut on fire.

On the same night, Manhanga also went to his in-laws homestead in the same village where he had an argument with his father-in-law while demanding lobola refund and threatening to destroy their homestead if his demands were not met.

He later torched a hut at the homestead. Manhanga was arrested after a police report was made, Manica Post reports.

iHarare had also reported that the saying “hell hath no fury like a scorned woman” came true after a woman locked up her husband, sister and maid inside a house before setting it on fire.

Zion Christian Church (ZCC) leader, Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi’s niece, Princess Mutendi torched the house in which her pregnant young sister Fiona was. This happened after Princess had discovered that Fiona was having an affair with her husband.

The accused Princess Mutendi and Fiona are reportedly daughters of Levite Mutendi who happens to be Bishop Nehemiah’s brother.

Details leading to the love affair between Princess’ husband Alex Marange and her younger sister say it all began when  Princess’ husband relocated her to South Africa whilst he remained behind in Zimbabwe.

While his wife was settling in South Africa, Alex is alleged to have started a love affair with his wife’s younger sister Fiona.

However, all hell broke loose after Princess discovered the love affair between her husband and sister.
