As if this this is not enough, she has also been keeping her son, only identified as Grant, in the ceiling of her house for over a decade.
Neighbours claim they last saw him more than a dozen years ago.
“We used to see Grant 14 years ago and, after that, Gogo Mahlahla was the only person we would see.
“Taivawona vachibuda nekudzoka vakatakura bag ravo vakapfeka zvechechi.
“Her other children are based outside the country.
“Her husband was last seen in a wheelchair more than five years ago,” said the neighbour.
Gogo Mahlahla filed a sudden death report to police and the cops discovered the body of her husband in a decomposing state.
They called the Homicide Section to attend the scene. Police had to engage some volunteers to get Grant from the ceiling.
There were fears Grant could be violent, since he was not responding to questions from police detectives.
