A young teenage father has confessed to poisoning his two-month-old son with a pesticide following a heated argument with his wife.
19-year-old Brenton Dengwani Guri of Chawa Village under Chief Makoni made the shocking revelation during his trial for murder at the High Court in Mutare.
Guri who initially pleaded not guilty to the charge confessed to the crime following the presentation of the state’s case against him.
The young father committed the crime back in October 2019, following a heated dispute with his wife. Due to the domestic problems and the constant squabbling that he was having with his wife, Guri decided to take his life.
He said that he poisoned his two-month-old son first, using a syringe to the mouth, because he wanted to leave his wife all alone in this world. However, for some reason, he did not take the diazinon pesticide after administering it to his son.
Guri’s trial is still ongoing at the High Court.
