Cape Town - Police are looking for a 26-year-old Zimbabwean who is on the run after allegedly killing his wife.

Alexio Mukana is believed to have killed Rejoice Giyane, 24, by hitting her with a car, reported the Weekend Argus.

The incident happened in Bellville on Wednesday afternoon. Giyane had finished work and was on her way home when her estranged husband approached her and asked her to get into his car.

She apparently refused and walked away. Mukanda then drove towards her, knocked her over and hit a tree.

He ran away and police believe he may be on his way to Zimbabwe.

Giyane was rushed to hospital but died of her injuries.

Police have alerted border officials to look out for Mukanda.
