A NINE-MONTH-OLD baby was on Monday stabbed to death by its 24-year-old father during a scuffle with the mother in Glen Norah A, Harare.
Baby Tanatswa became the victim when the father Vincent Sakutukwa missed his wife only identified as Memory and stabbed the baby.
Vincent went on to finish off the baby by cutting its throat and dumping the body outside the house after Memory escaped from the attack.
The incident took place at House No. 1809 Ngezi Street and Vincent disappeared from the scene only to be spotted in Glen Norah C, naked.
One of the neighbours told H-Metro that Vincent was spotted naked hiding at a hill near Mukivisi River after he hurled stones at neighbours who failed to apprehend him threatening to stab anyone who came close to him.

“I want to believe that Vincent is not mentally challenged since he is studying towards a Diploma in Business Marketing but could have been attacked by evil spirits since his wife once mentioned that he would act like a baboon before the heinous act,” said the neighbour.
When H-Metro arrived, Vincent was being led to Glen Norah Police Station.
A family representative refused to entertain H-Metro referring the reporters to the source.
“We are still in shock that we cannot give a comment at the same time his wife is still mourning,” said the representative refusing to identify themself.
