The Zimbabwe Republic Police investigated the case and arrested the assailants.

The victim suffered injuries from the assault and was treated at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospital. The police, however, denied rumours circulating on social media about the victim’s death.

The assailants involved in the incident were identified as Zeripah Kanduza, Natasha Kanduza, Fortunate Tembo, 18-year-old Mitchel Kariwo, and Olleen Vinyungwi. The four – Zeripah Kanduza, Natasha Kanduza, Fortunate Tembo and Olleyn Vinyungwi – pleaded guilty to the charges of assault.

The four women from Hatcliffe Extension reportedly targeted the victim due to suspicions of her involvement with a married man.
