According to reports, a Zimbabwean man identified as Tineyi Moyo, beat up the corpse of Learnmore Dube, who he claims had an affair with his wife before his death.
An angry Moyo was said to have stormed Dube’s home while his funeral was in progress, then
proceeded to beat his corpse up for sleeping with his wife Selina Nyoka. He had reportedly noticed his wife’s anguish over Dube’s death, and after questioning her, discovered that she had been carrying on a secret affair with the deceased.
According to Chief Chireya of the Magamba village, Moyo decided to get his ‘revenge’ even in death, and when summoned to his presence to defend his actions, he said:
“I was angry after discovering that he was sleeping with my wife. What made me angrier is that the truth came out when he was dead meaning I couldn’t confront him. Therefore, I decided to beat him and honestly I felt better after beating him.”
Here’s what happened according to a source:
“He came to the funeral wake and started insulting everyone who was there and demanded to see Dube’s corpse. He said his wife had confessed to having an illicit affair with Dube.”
Moyo was released and asked to give three cows to the deceased’s family as fine for disrespecting them.
