A 42-year-old woman from Zimbabwe confessed to killing her husband in a dispute of finances. It appears she was being haunted by the ghost of her late husband and could not take it anymore.

The suspect was identified as Nancy Majonhi. The 42-year-old is being charged with the murder of Prosper Chipungare who was allegedly struck with a hammer and then chopped to pieces by the woman.

To dispose of the chopped body parts of Chipungare, Majonhi reportedly disposed of them in three pit toilets.

Majonhi appeared at the Mogwase Magistrate's Court for a bail application on Thursday (Sept. 9). However, the case was postponed and reset for Sept. 21.

The incident happened in Ledig near Rustenburg, Northwest. The couple had two children.

When Majonhi killed, chopped up and disposed of Chipungare’s remains in 2015, she cleaned up the scene where it all happened. After that, she reported her husband missing to the Sun City Police Station.

A missing person report was filed although Majonhi allegedly did not wait for the police to find him. Rather, she packed her things and returned to her home in Zimbabwe. Police were never able to find anything on Chipingare.

However, it came to a point where Majonhi confessed what happened to her family. Her brother named Andrew revealed how her sister confessed the entire thing because she was being haunted by her late husband’s ghost and had been having sleepless nights.

According to North West Police spokesperson, Brigadier Sabata Mokgwaabone, Majonhi confessed to attacking Chipungare with a hammer over an argument of money. The man confronted his wife over the misuse of funds, something that led to the 42-year-old getting irate.

It was in January 2021 when Majonhi confessed to the crime. However, she could not travel back to South Africa from Zimbabwe due to the COVID-19 situation.

When she returned last month to South Africa, Majonhi confessed to the crime. Police exhumed the three toilets and used DNA testing to identify Chipungare.

Chipungare worked as a miner in Rustenburg and was last seen in 2015 according to church mate Lovemore Sithole.
