Karoi brothers up for murder

TWO Karoi brothers have been arrested for allegedly slitting the throat of a soldier based at Magunje Infantry Battalion with a sharp object, killing him instantly following a beerhall brawl on Sunday.


The two are now facing murder charges.

Mashonaland West police spokesperson Inspector Clemence Mabgweazara confirmed the incident and identified the deceased as Wellington Nzombe (23) and the suspects as Shelton (28) and Respect Kavhayi (25).

The alleged incident happened at a bottle store at Magunje growth point.

According to the police, Nzombe was drinking beer with his colleague Albert Matara at the growth point when the suspects approached them and asked for beer. A brawl soon broke out after Matara turned down the request.

When Nzombe intervened, Respect held him by the hand while his elder brother slit the soldier’s throat with a sharp object, killing him instantly.

“This case is not a political case as some people want to treat it. It was a misunderstanding between people at a bottle store and unfortunately it involved a soldier,” Mabgweazara said.

    State security apparatus should not take their portfolios to the bars because they have instilled fear among peace loving Zimbabweans.People are living in perpetual fear of death because of these soldiers.We should bear in mind that where there is threat of death there is fear,where there is fear there is hate and where there is hate reason surrenders to emotions and our instincts for survival take charge.
