THREE women were arrested for kidnapping and assaulting the mother of a woman they accused of bedding one of their husbands in Dzivaresekwa.
Shelter Zhuga, 32, of Tynwald South, Tendai Zhuga, 30, of Kuwadzana 1, and Tatenda Mhene, 32, of Kuwadzana 2 stand accused of kidnapping and assaulting Catherine Kungetsambo, 45, of Dzivarasekwa 3.
