Prosecutor, Munyonga Kuvarega told the court that on February 9, Mbengwa was at Juta One Village in Lutumba in Beitbridge, when he had a misunderstanding with the now-deceased, Titos Mbengwa over an unspecified issue.

Mbengwa then allegedly assaulted Titos, who died on admission at the Beitbridge District Hospital on February 12, leading to Mbengwa’s arrest.
