The reigning boyfriend took off at full speed like a cheetah leaving his new girlfriend at the mercy of an okapi wielding former boyfriend.
The ex-boyfriend who was identified as Guilty could not stomach the idea of his girlfriend, Mercy Zibowa being snatched by another man.
Zibowa had just moved in with his 35 year old boyfriend in a Chiredzi paradise to start a life of bliss.
Guilty could not have any of that. He trailed the couple and cornered them at Chiredzi dump site.
The jilted lover drew out an Okapi knife before fatally charging at them like a wounded Buffalo.
The boyfriend took to his heels to avoid the blade, which piercingly caught up with his girlfriend.
She was stabbed five times and died on the spot.
Guilty disappeared into the bushes to start a life of running away from the police after the incident.
