A SECURITY guard at a lodge in Chipinge has been sentenced to 26 years for killing a client in a foiled robbery attempt.

Tinashe Mtisi (26) appeared before High Court judge Justice Hlekani Mwayera facing a murder charge.

He will now spend 26 years behind bars.

Mtisi was employed as a security guard at Caravan Park Lodge in Chipinge.

On December 29, 2019 at around 7:30pm, the deceased, Kudakwashe Msindo, and his girlfriend Natalie Ann Freeman, who were on holiday in Zimbabwe from London, checked in at Caravan Lodge for a night.

Around 11pm, Mtisi broke into their room through a window intending to steal, but was intercepted by Msindo, who fought him.

But Mtisi strangled Msindo and escaped into the dark, leaving behind a piece of clothing that sold him out. Msindo was pronounced dead upon admission to Chipinge District
Hospital.
