Mashonaland Central acting police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Petros Masikati confirmed the incident, but could not give more details.

“We received that murder case and the suspects are still at large. Unfortunately, I am not in the office right now for further details”, he said.

Sources claimed the victim, Sam Bhunu, was fatally assaulted by his colleagues at a bar in Mazowe, before his machete-wielding assailants fled in an unmarked black Honda Fit vehicle.


  1. Isn’t this sex worker talk just intended to spice up the story and make it more exciting. These people are always conflicting over their panning turfs and it is possible they clashed over it when they met. But of course, it could be anything.
