“We received a report of a 44-year-old woman in Zengeza 3, who succumbed to food poisoning,” he said.“We heard reports that a family in Zengeza 3 mistakenly used insecticide as baking ingredients. We urge members of the public not to put food and poison at the same place.’’

“Unfortunately, family members, including the husband and the child, ate the food.”The neighbour said while asleep, family members started vomiting, leading to the death of Mrs Chidhau.Residents, relatives and friends sent messages of condolence on various Chitungwiza social media platforms.
