Several witnesses have also been lined in efforts to fix the suspect in what has been termed as pure murder. This is given the fact that the accused confessed to having killed his wife, after their marriage was rocked by endless troubles.
A bloodstained knife and a club 'rungu' believed to be murder weapons collected at the scene are alos being analyzed forensically.
