News:Police Arrest Nurse, Boyfriend For Allegedly Killing Patients In Insurance Scam

<vote /> Police have arrested a Kwekwe General Hospital nurse and her boyfriend as they widen investigations into a case in which patients were drugged and killed before their identification particulars were used to claim insurance cover from Old Mutual Life Assurance Company.

One of the victims is now having to be exhumed as part of investigations. Apart from the case for which the nurse Renica Chakabvapasi and her boyfriend Godwin Takarwa Mugwangi are assisting police with investigations, there are two similar cases that occurred last year.

The two were arrested while claiming money following the death of Lee Mazarire. The deceased’s relatives, with the assistance of the police, were yesterday in the process of exhuming the body for further investigations. Mazarire's body is expected to undergo another post-mortem.

Chief police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba yesterday said on the two cases that occurred last year, Mugwangi claimed insurance cover for two deceased persons using the same modus operandi,

The two are still in custody and as police, we are still investigating the case to ascertain whether the deceased (Mazarire) died as a result of the tablets she was given by Chakabvapasi or not. Investigations have also revealed that there are two similar cases, which occurred last year involving the same accused persons.

Chakabvapasi and Mugwangi appeared before a Kwekwe magistrate Mr Ngoni Nduna on Monday charged with fraud.

They are likely to face murder charges once investigations are complete.
