A 17-year-old Zimbabwean boy, Chinhengo Timothy has reportedly killed himself after he found out that his 37-year-old sugar mummy was cheating on him.
Chinhengo committed suicide in police cell after he was arrested for stabbing his older lover, Patricia Chiweshe, to death, H-metro reports.
According to the report, Timothy, from Landa’s business centre in Chihota trailed his lover and saw her coming from a toilet in the company of a man, at the weekend, when he approached them and stabbed his lover several times.
The Police spokesperson, Siphiwe Makonese, who confirmed the report, was quoted to have said Timothy was arrested afterwards and hung himself at Mahusekwa police station in a cell using a strap from the blanket cell.
Timothy’s aunt, Sarah Mhondiw, speaking on the incident, recounted how she tried to stop him from dating the cougar but he was said to have been adamant.
Mhondiw said, “I really don’t know how to explain the story as I’m in shock. Timothy met Patricia at some bar, Patricia was said to be a prostitute at the time.
They started co-habiting despite our protests.
“The matter was reported to the chief and both were lashed. We even approached the police who said they could not intervene.
“I visited him while he was in police custody. He told me that he attacked Patricia because she was cheating on him with a guard who works at a bar somewhere at Landas shopping centre. He said he had heard rumours and he finally saw it for himself. Patricia told him to mind his own business. He did not manage to tell me the rest of the story because we were told that visiting time was over.
“Later that day when we wanted to give him food the police told us that he had committed suicide.
“Timothy would confide in me all the time, he used to say that his wife drives him to drink often and that he cannot even pray anymore. He believed that Patricia had used juju on him,” Mhondiw sobbed.
