Police in Bulawayo have arrested a couple who allegedly axed their employer, Dr Geneva Sibanda (62) to death before stealing his property in Inyathi.

Sources close to investigations told that Baron Chiguru (28) and Sheila Ndolu were employed by Sibanda as domestic workers.

The incident happened last Tuesday. Dr Sibanda, whose farm is at Robert block, Queens area in Bubi district along the Bulawayo-Nkayi highway, was popular among the farming community in Matabeleland North where he was the chairperson of the Big Time Agricultural Farmers' Association.

According to the police, the workers allegedly axed their employer to death and threw the corpse in a 40-meter-deep disused mine.

They subsequently stole a "Nissan X trail vehicle. Stove, firearms, refrigerator, two cellphones, compressor and a lawn mower."

Working on a tip-off the police managed to arrest the couple on New Year's Eve and retrieved the body of the deceased.
