By A Correspondent- The Zimbabwe Republic Police has since launched a manhunt for Rangisai Ndlovu after he vanished immediately after stabbing his uncle on the chest with a kitchen knife at the height of the argument.

According to the police report, on 9 August around 8:30 pm, the now-deceased Melinkosi, Rangisai, and two others-Bonwell Ndlovu and Ben Sibanda had an argument over the genuineness of a traditional healer who resides in Zozo village.

The heated argument spiraled out of control after the now-deceased allegedly picked a stick and hit his nephew twice.

Ndlovu and Sibanda tried to restrain the two but their efforts were all in vain as Rangisai retaliated by drawing a knife and stabbing his uncle on the chest.

After he was stabbed, Melinkosi collapsed on his back and died on the spot.

Upon realizing what he had done Rangisai fled from the scene.

Grace Nkomo, the now deceased’s wife, reported the matter to the police. Upon arrival,  the police cleared the body and took it to Nkayi District Hospital mortuary pending a postmortem.

Rangisai’s whereabouts are currently not known. However, before he fled he informed his brother that he wanted to commit suicide as his conscience was eating him for killing his uncle.
