Murdered Zimbabwean Had Two Husbands

THE Zimbabwean, who was allegedly killed by her Namibian husband last week, could have had two husbands at the time of her death, police said.

According to Khomas crime coordinator Deputy Commissioner Sylvanus Nghishidimbwa, Siphiwe Masuku (43) was apparently married to two Namibian men.

Nghishidimbwa, however, said the police are currently looking for the first husband.

“We have discovered that Masuku married her first Namibian husband years ago when she arrived in Namibia. She then recently also married Chabi Owaseb whom we suspect killed her and then committed suicide. We are looking for her first husband to establish if they were still married,” Nghishidimbwa told The Namibian on Monday.

Masuku’s body was found between Windhoek and Okahandja close to Okapuka Ranch, where it was apparently dumped, while Owaseb’s body was found hanging in his shack in Havana after he had committed suicide.

Meanwhile, the family of Charmaine Fredericks, who died in hospital after she was allegedly shot by businessman Sakarias ‘Sacky’ Mathias at a bar in Katutura, has positively identified her body.

“Her uncle came to identify her body last week,” Ngishidimbwa added.

In another related matter, police say they have made progress in the investigation involving Magdalena Eixas, whose body was found dumped between Otjiwarongo and Otavi last week.

Police said Eixas, a sex worker, was living in Windhoek and was last seen by her friends, who are also sex workers, when she was picked up on last Saturday evening from Windhoek by an unidentified white man, driving a sedan vehicle.
