Man murders brother over turkey


MASVINGO- A 26-year-old Mwenezi villager allegedly murdered his brother following a dispute over a missing turkey.

Police said the incident occurred at Njegu village under Chief Mazetese last Saturday.

District police spokesperson Sergeant Nkululeko Nduna said the suspect had since been arrested and was now helping police with investigations.

“Yes, I can confirm the murder case in which Reuben Njegu (26) murdered his brother, George Ncube (43) in a dispute over Ncube’s missing turkey,” Nduna said.
He said preliminary investigations had established that Ncube had accused his younger brother of stealing the turkey.

Nduna said on the fateful day, Ncube and Njegu went to Jetias Madziva’s home in Maphisa village for a beer drink.

“As they were leaving the homestead where they were drinking, the now deceased Ncube accused his brother Njegu of stealing his turkey. Ncube poked Njegu in the face with his walking stick as he was disabled, immediately provoking Njegu who retaliated by dispossessing his brother of his walking stick and using it to assault him on the head repeatedly until Ncube died,” said Nduna.

Nduna said after the murder, Njegu allegedly rushed to inform his father, Mtajwa Dlegu (72) that he had killed his brother. Dlegu then reported the matter at Maranda Police Station, leading to the suspect’s arrest.

A family spokesperson, Ellison Moyo told NewsDay yesterday they were still trying to come to terms with the incident.

“Reuben shocked the community here,” Moyo said. “He acted as if he was possessed. The scene was so ghastly.”

“After the murder, Reuben roamed the village in a strange manner announcing that he had murdered his brother, George before making similar confessions at the arrival of the police.”

The deceased’s body was taken to Masvingo General Hospital for post mortem.


  1. May God have mercy.surely this supports basil george mwale’s teachings for he emphasized that we are in the last brothers shall kill each other over petty issues because if anger starts a demon will harden the heart and will operate further thus causing destruction to the person u see now this person will live the whole life in jail coz he let anger control him surely i have seen that anger is destructive and is a weapon of the devil that destroys love and the heart of God in man.I will now take basil george mwale’s teaching and i will never allow anger to control me because i have now seen its consequences.thank u Lord for such a revelation and i will never take teachings for granted.thank u newsday for publishing this story.God bless u

  2. Mysteries Revealed:
    Lately we have been looking for Brother Basil George Mwale but He seems to be outmanouvring journalists.However it so happens that many christians believe that he is the “Elijah” since many people are seeing visions of him at prayer mountains and in dreams.Many pastors including the AFM pastor Katsande is testifying of seeing the so called “Boy Prophet”in visions.He said”The Grace that has come to us should not be ignored and i must testify of what i saw.when i was in prayer i saw Two boys holding each pther and glowing in awe dressed in white robes.Fire was around them and angels were singing around them saying the True Sons Of God who shall restore the Hearts of the people back To the Lord.they sang and sang then one Mighty Angel came and said “Behold George Mwale and Munyaradzi Gwenere the Sons of God who dwell in Humility,submission and committment.Their hearts are pure and have been found worthy because they are selfless and have shown True Love Of God.Behold this is the 2nd coming of Elijah the Prophet.Go and testify of this and let people know.Some shall be given these people but shall fail to keep them because of selfishness,greed,anger and disobedience.Go forth and preach of this.Whoever neglects them neglects God whoever disobeys them disobeys God and shall not be spared.Now go those who will believe you shall be rewarded those who do noy believe shall perish”.This is what the testified to have seen.Now the question is Are we now approaching the end since Elijah shall be resend before the final day of The Lord.whoever these two young men ate christians in Chipinge,Mutare,Harare and Bindura believe that they shall save the world and some believe they are steal concealed because they ate being prepared and they shall Come out when the time is right.Some believe that Munyaradzi is the Elisha since ,according to those who saw the vision,the Bond they felt was strong and was pure love and this is a clear indication of a strong between these two.Well all i can say is “Mysteries Of The Bible Are Now REVEALED!!!!!Report by: Fred Marambe Edited by: Cornelious Chiseko.
