Phokeng/ Rustenburg – The murder case against 42-year-old Nancy Majonhi, who handed herself over to the Sun City police six years ago was postponed at the Mankwe Magistrates’ Court in Mogwase on Tuesday 19 October due to her ill-health. 

In 2015 she admitted to killing her husband and getting rid of parts of his body in three different pit toilets. She was admitted to hospital under police guard. Apparently, she refused to eat while in police custody.

Majonhi stands accused of bludgeoning her husband, Prosper Chipungare (44), with a hammer. She reportedly hacked his body with a spade and disposed of his body. Then she reported her husband as missing at the Sun City police station. 

According to brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone, the incident took place in a rented room in Ledig on 28 July 2015, after the couple had a fight. After the incident, Majonhi went home to Zimbabwe, where she confessed to her family and in-laws that she had killed her husband.

The families arranged to come to South Africa, and Majonhi handed herself over to the Sun City police. She then showed the police where she buried the remains of her husband’s body. A skull and bones were retrieved; DNA tests are underway. The case was postponed to 9 November 2021.
