According to report made available to Matters Arising, it was gathered that the woman, Ms Siphilisiwe Nkomo, was rushed to Mpilo Central Hospital where she was pronounced dead after having breathing difficulties while at Mr Jona Chigovanyika’s house on Wednesday morning.
A 41-year-old married woman from Mpopoma, a Bulawayo suburb died under unclear circumstances after spending a night at a boyfriend’s house.
The cause of her death is yet to be established as police are still waiting for a post-mortem report. Bulawayo provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Abednico Ncube, said police were treating the matter as sudden death and investigations were underway. Ncube said:
I can confirm that a woman identified as Siphilisiwe Nkomo (41) of Mpopomawas pronounced dead on arrival at Mpilo Central Hospital. We are now waiting for post-mortem results to establish the cause of death.
The woman died at around 10 am after she was rushed to hospital having breathing difficulties. The relative said Ms Nkomo’s decision to sleep over at Chigovanyika’s place is shocking considering that she was married.
