One of Mozambique’s richest women, Valentina Guebuza, 36-year old daughter of Mozambique’s ex-President Armando Guebuza, has been shot dead by her husband in a suspected case of domestic violence, police say.

Zofino Muiuane was arrested after Mrs Guebuza was killed at their home in the capital, Maputo, police said.



Mrs Guebuza father, President Armando Guebuza, was presedent of Mozambique from 2005 to 2015.

She married Mr Muiuane at a lavish ceremony, attended by regional leaders, in 2014.

While police said the shooting was a case of domestic violence, they also said they were still investigating the motive.

Mr Muiuane, a manager at Mozambique’s first mobile phone company M-Cel, has not yet been charged.



Mrs. Guebuza became one of Mozambique’s wealthiest business-women during her father’s presidency, our correspondent adds.

Business magazine Forbes listed her in 2013 as one of the 20 most powerful women in Africa.
