A 46-year-old Zimbabwean woman, Auxillia Banda, has reportedly committed suicide after her husband stole her money to marry a second wife.
According to ZimNews, the heartbroken Auxilla, a mother of four female children from Madziwa, a municipality in central Zimbabwe, took her life after she discovered that her husband, Norman, had used the money she had saved for over two years to marry a new wife over her inability to give him male children.
The Madziwa Police spokesman, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, said the deceased was a
mathematics teacher in a public school in the district.
“Yes, we can confirm the incident. We got a report that Auxilla Banda, a mathematics teacher in Madziwa Public School committed suicide because her husband stole her money to marry a second wife.
“She left behind four female kids who are in Form 2, Grade 7, Grade 4 and a 2-year-old,” Nyathi said.
“We are currently investigating the incident. Her husband, Norman, was initially arrested and his statement taken before he was released,” Nyathi added.
