A 21-year-old Gweru man committed suicide by hanging after he was reportedly denied conjugal rights by his 18-year-old wife on Tuesday last week.
Councillor Adam Shava said the now-deceased man, Dumisani Matonsi of Plot 12 Rodell Farm, Somabula had a misunderstanding over conjugal rights with his newly-married wife.
In protest, he then walked out of the bedroom.
It was reported that after about an hour of the husband walking out of the bedroom, the wife, Sarah Mazambatate woke up to check out on him only to find him hanging on a Msasa tree branch within the yard.
The matter was then reported to Gweru Rural Police Station under sudden death report RBR number 4703082 The Herald reports.
