Pathias Mwape was on peacekeeping mission when his wife found solace in the arms of one of his superiors in the army.

The ungodly relationship was common knowledge all over the barracks, but it took Mwape years, after raising his kids to realise that two of them belonged to the superior officer.

It is amazing how the victims are usually the last to hear their own story on matters like this. Life is cruel isn’t it?

He eventually heard rumours that two of his children were not his and when he confronted the wife, who is also a police woman, she broke down in tears confirming that indeed two of the children were not his.

A source in the army said: “Rumors have been going on for some time, all we know is that the wife was sleeping with one of our bosses. It is believed those two children are for the boss, but he raised them to date.

“He was mad, in the morning after shooting his wife he left looking for the boss. He wanted to shoot him too but fortunate enough, the boss was not home together with his wife and children.

“When he went for peace keeping some years back, one of our bosses use to go and sleep in their house. It’s a well-known story.

“The top bosses know about it and we are waiting to see if the cause of this problem will be punished according to our guiding command procedures.”

Sadly, Mwape will not be there when (or if) justice is served because after realizing that Police were looking for him, he also shot himself dead.

The whole incident happened in an army barrack Zimbabwe.
