A CHIPINGE man is battling for his life at St Peter's Mission Hospital after being struck with a machete by his wife over a domestic dispute.

The wife, Loveness Muyunga Jinga, has since been arrested for attempted murder and was expected to appear in court this week. It is alleged that Charles Khumbula of Chikono Village under Chief Garahwa arrived home from a beer drink and found his wife Loveness sleeping outside their hut.
Chipinge District police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Blessing Kadzuraumera said Khumbula woke Loveness up and accused her of infidelity.
"He force marched her into their bedroom and the two exchanged harsh words. Khumbula assaulted Loveness with fists and having had enough of her husband's battering, she picked up a machete.
"In a fit of rage, Loveness struck Khumbula several times all over the body. Khumbula sustained serious injuries on the head and both arms. He was rushed to St Peter's Mission Hospital where his condition is reported to be critical," he said.
Asst Insp Kadzuraumera urged members of the public to solve their differences amicably.
"We are urging members of the public to solve their differences amicably. They should seek assistance from traditional leaders or visit community relations officers for assistance," said Asst Insp Kadzuraumera.
