A love triangle took a very nasty turn when a Bulawayo man whose wife left him, tried to kill her new lover by setting off commercial-grade explosives at his house in the middle of the night. The shocking incident occured in Bulawayo’s Luveve suburb on Tuesday.

According to the Chronicle, Khulani Nyoni (35) who works as an artisanal miner is suspected to have carried out the attack. Nyoni who did not take it well when his wife, Gracious Sibanda (22) dumped him to cohabit with her new lover Anderson Sibanda (30), is said to have threatened his rival with death numerous times. He has allegedly been sending messages to Anderson and his siblings that he would kill him and burn down his house if he did not stop his affair with Gracious.

On Tuesday night, explosives which are commonly used in mining were placed beneath a window beside Anderson’s bed and set off at around 11 pm.

Fortunately, at that time Anderson was having Bible Study in another room with two colleagues while Gracious had gone out of town.

The explosion tore a hole into the house,  destroyed eight window panes and shredded two asbestos roofing sheets from the house while rattling windows of nearby houses.

The concussive force of the explosion knocked out Anderson and his Bible study mates. One of the  bible study mates, Navigator Dube (28) told the Chronicle,
