Identity Of Zimbabwean Woman Shot Dead Outside Cape Town Courthouse Revealed

On May 25, 2023, a Zimbabwean woman named Christine Yolanda Gumira was shot dead outside a courthouse in Cape Town, South Africa. According to ZimLive, Gumira, who was 30 years old and a mother-of-one, was a witness in the trial of a man who had killed her friend. In a video that has gone viral, Gumira can be seen walking on a street with two others before an unidentified person in a hoodie approaches her from behind and shoots her in the head.

Gumira’s family members claim that she had reported threats against her life to the police, but she was not provided with any protection. Her niece, Mollyn Matangambiri, expressed her disappointment with the South African state, stating that she believed they had failed Gumira.. Gumira’s niece Mollyn Matangambiri told ZimLive:

I strongly feel the South African state failed her. She told police that she was getting threats from the people that killed her friend, they told her that if she continued testifying they were going to kill her.

The South African police have arrested four suspects in connection with the killing. On Friday, Cape Town provincial police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Malcolm Pojie announced that a dedicated integrated team of detectives had conducted tracing operations that led to the arrest of the four suspects. Lieutenant Colonel Malcolm Pojie said:

The killer, who was armed, threatened to shoot Gumira’s son if she did not take him to where her friend had moved. In fear, Gumira complied, and her friend was subsequently shot in front of her. She was threatened with death if she told the police or cooperated with law enforcement. The police convinced her to testify in the murder trial, but unfortunately, she was killed as a result.
