A 25-year-old Harare man allegedly stabbed his wife and her boss with a knife after accusing the two of having an extra marital affair, the court heard on Monday.

Gibson Mugwamba was charged with attempted murder when he appeared before Harare magistrate, Mr Elijah Makomo.

He was remanded in custody to February 15 and ordered to approach the High Court for bail application.


It is alleged that on Saturday last week, Mugwamba accused his wife of having an extra marital affair and threatened to kill her.

The court heard that one of his wife’s bosses tried to intervene to calm the situation by taking Mugwamba outside the gate.

It is alleged that during the scuffle, Mugwamba stabbed his wife and her boss with a knife on the stomach and both sustained deep cuts.

The two were rushed to Parirenyatwa Hospital where they are receiving treatment.
