Breaking: Momberume Charged with Murder of Anna Machaya

Prosecutors in Mutare have now charged Hatirarami Momberume, 26, with MURDER over the death of 15-year-old Anna Machaya – his “wife” from an arranged marriage.

Anna Machaya died during child birth on July 15 at a Johane Marange.

The police confirmed the arrest of Hatirarami Momberume yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Republic Police is pressing charges against Anna Machaya’s father, Elmore Machaya (45) and mother Shy Mabika (36) for obstructing or defeating the course of justice.

The parents openly lied to the police that Anna Machaya was born 2nd January 1999.

The mother went on to give police investigators a national identity card in a bid to prove that she was born on 2nd January 1999.

According to the investigators, it was a fake national identity card.

The investigators found out that the national identity belonged to a namesake of the late minor who is a daughter to Ernest Machaya.

Ernest Machaya is an uncle to the late Anna Machaya.
