    ‘Chivhu woman petrol-bombed over hubby’


    - A 25-year old woman from Westwood Suburb in Chivhu died last week after she was petrol-bombed by a woman suspected to be her husband's second wife.
    Stella Kabvura died at Parirenyatwa Hospital and was buried in Mutoko. Samson Kabvura, Stella's brother confirmed his sister's death.
    Police spokesperson Supritendent Crime and the Deputy Officer Commanding Chivhu District, Lameck Mtetwa said the incident was investigated as murder but the accused are not known.  His brother Samson told The Mirror that the Police told him that they are still investigating the issue because their suspects denied the accusations. Kabvura is understood to have been fighting a maintenance case in court with her former husband when her house was perol-bombed.
    Sources have evidence that the petrol bomb was in the form of a two litre container of petrol found at Kabvura's door. In a telephone interview with The Mirror, Samson said that a petrol bomb was thrown on Stella's door resulting in a raging fire burning her body and property.
    "At around 12 midnight a petrol bomb was thrown at Stella's door. The fire blazed into her room and when she woke up the whole room was in flames.
    "She managed to unlock the door and ran through the fire but she was left with serious body injuries. She was rushed to Chivhu General Hospital then to Parirenyatwa Hospital where she died," he said.
    One source who spoke on condition of anonymity told The Mirror that Stella spoke to a number of people before she died and blamed her husband's second wife for her misfortunes.
    Stella was into buying and selling goods from South Africa and is survived by one child.
