A heartless university student shocked his family members after he brutally murdered his mother for giving him words of advice.
A Midlands State University in Zimbabwe who brutally stabbed his mother to death has appeared in court yesterday.
It was gathered that the 22-year-old boy identified as Emmanuel Chiota beat up his mother before stabbing her to death with a pair of scissors because she told him to stop smoking marijuana.
Chiota who is studying Horticulture in the university, yesterday appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Bianca Makwande facing murder charges. The State is being led by prosecutor Mr Peter Kachirika.
According to The Herald, the prosecutor told the court that on November 20 at around 12pm, the now deceased was at home counselling her son Chiota over the issue of drug abuse in the presence of her husband Bodimen Chiota.
The court heard that Emmanuel’s father left the house leaving the now deceased with her son in their counselling session while he sought spiritual help from some of their church members.
It is alleged that Emmanuel began assaulting his mother with wooden stools which were in their dining room.
The state further alleged that he followed his mother to her bedroom where he stabbed her on the neck with a pair of scissors killing her on the spot.
He was denied bail and remanded in custody to December 6. The trial continues.
