Zimbabwean teen kills mum for borrowing money without repaying

Published

on

A Zimbabwean teenager, Tinashe Tidziwani, 19, has allegedly murdered his mother after she was unable to repay a 50 cent loan, he had given her earlier.

The body of Tidziwani’s mother was discovered by her sister-in-law two days after she was murdered. She told neighbours about her discovery and that was when she was informed about the attack two days earlier.

It was reported that Tidziwani after realizing what he had done, ran away from home and went to his uncle’s home.

On arrival, he told his uncle that he had injured his mother but did not specify the nature of the injury. He then asked his wife to go and check on her, only for her to discover that she was dead.

Bulawayo Metropolitan Province acting police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident to newsmen.

He said, “I can confirm we received a report of a 19-year-old man from Bulawayo who allegedly assaulted his mother, resulting in her death. He attacked her with fists and kicked her several times until a neighbour came to her rescue.

“We suspect she may have died on the very night and the body showed she bled from the mouth and nose. The deceased’s sister-in-law who had come to visit discovered the body in her bedroom and she informed neighbours who told her about the attack two days earlier,” he said.

Neighbours revealed it was not the first time that Tidziwani had attacked his mother.

Turkey: Group calls for immediate action against Femicide

Emine Dirican, a beautician from Istanbul, tried to be a good wife. But her husband hated that she worked, that she socialized, even that she wanted to leave the house sometimes without him.

She tried to reason with him. He lashed out.

“One time, he tied me — my hands, my legs from the back, like you do to animals,” recalls Dirican, shuddering. “He beat me with a belt and said, ‘You’re going to listen to me, you’re going to obey whatever I say to you.’ “

She left him and moved in with her parents. In January, he showed up, full of remorse and insisting he had changed. She let him in.

In her mother’s kitchen, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her to the floor and pulled out a gun.

“He shot me,” she says. “Then he went back to my mom and he pulled the trigger again, but the gun was stuck. So he hit her head with the back of the gun.”

Her father, who was in another room in the house, heard the gunshots and ran over. Dirican almost bled to death after a bullet ripped through a main artery in one of her legs.

“I was telling my father, ‘Daddy, please, I don’t want to die.’ “

Femicide — killing women because of their gender — is a longstanding issue in Turkey. Nearly 300 women have been killed so far this year, according to the Istanbul-based advocacy group We Will Stop Femicide, which has been tracking gender-related deaths since Turkish authorities stopped doing so in 2009.
