In a shocking and tragic turn of events, the recent case of   Mufakose child killer  Thomas Nyamhunga, who took the life of his girlfriend Needmore Mauka’s five-year-old son, has revealed a disturbing prior incident.

This incident had already marked Nyamhunga as a person of interest for the police, yet it appears that the necessary actions were not taken to prevent the subsequent tragedy.

Nyamhunga faced the consequences of his actions when he made his first court appearance on Wednesday, charged with murder, attempted murder, and domestic violence.

The court proceedings took place at the Mbare Magistrate Court, where Magistrate Batanai Madzingira presided over the case.

Nyamhunga was remanded in custody until December 20, and the case has been referred to the High Court for a bail application.

The horrifying incident occurred on a Sunday night when Nyamhunga visited Mauka’s residence in Mufakose. Finding her three children alone, a heated argument ensued over the phone as Mauka informed Nyamhunga of her return from Mhondoro, where she had attended the Chibuku Super Cup final between Dynamos and Ngezi Platinum Stars.

As tensions escalated, Nyamhunga allegedly took a kitchen knife around 8.30 pm and fatally slit the throat of Mauka’s five-year-old son.

In a desperate attempt to escape the brutal attack, the eight-year-old girl was also stabbed in the throat but managed to seek refuge at a neighbor’s house, ultimately alerting Mauka to the horrifying incident involving her children.

The disturbing sequence of events raises serious concerns about the effectiveness of law enforcement in handling cases of domestic violence and ensuring the safety of individuals at risk.

The prior assault incident involving Nyamhunga and Mauka over a small sum of money should have served as a red flag, prompting more robust intervention measures to protect those involved.

As this tragic story unfolds, it underscores the urgency for improved strategies and resources to address domestic violence, ensuring that individuals with a history of violent behavior are effectively monitored and prevented from inflicting further harm.
