The two suspects claimed to have come from Zenga village in Mozambique.
Mashonaland Central province acting police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Fedelis Dhewu confirmed the murder case.
“I can confirm a murder case in Rushinga where an 81 year old man was killed with machetes,”Dhewu said.
Allegations are that the two suspects dressed in black arrived at Kazasi’s homestead pretending that they wanted to pay for services that they got from the late spirit medium Everisto Meki popularly known as Hokoto.
The unsuspecting Kazasi who was sleeping in his room was called by his wife Esteri Kazasi (62).
Upon getting out they requested for cigarettes from the now deceased and were offered some.
They further asked for a room to sleep claiming that their motor bike had a tyre puncture.
They were offered a room, but instead they turned violent and pulled out machetes which they used to assault Kazasi.
He died on the spot and the duo fled in the dark.
Police are still investigating the matter. They have appealed to anyone with information pertaining to the murder to report it at any police station.
