    CHIREDZI – The motive behind the ghastly murder of a 71-year-old woman from Mwenezi with a machete is not yet clear.
    However, the suspect Austine Chitem of Village Dumela under Chief Sengwe in Chiredzi is said to have skinned his victim’s face after the murder and left the skin hanging.
    After the murder, Chitem is said to have walked away and took a nap a few metres away from the body of Castina Moyo (71) of Village 4 Chiumburu under chief Chitanga.
    The cold blood murder happened last Thursday.
    Chitem allegedly approached the now deceased at her homestead where she and a grandchild were guarding millet crop from wild birds.
    The accused took a machete which was on the ground and allegedly  struck the deceased twice on the neck and several times on the head with it. He then allegedly skinned the deceased’s face and head.
    Efforts to get a comment from Police spokesperson Charity Mazula were fruitless.
