By A Correspondent- The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has launched a manhunt for seven men for the murder of a 30-year-old man, who was stabbed for allegedly “showing off” at a bar in Kwekwe’s area of Munyathi.
The now-deceased, David Tembo (30), was stabbed by seven assailants as he tried to buy beer at Dollar Bar on 13 September.
Midlands Provincial Spokesperson Inspector Emanuel Mahoko confirmed the murder. He said:
It was reported that the now deceased Tembo, of Trafalgar 63 Mine in Kadoma arrived at Dollar Bar in the company of three of his friends intending to buy beer.
They found the bar closed with seven unknown men seated outside the bar.
One of the men then awakened the bar lady who then sold beer to Tembo and his friends.
The seven suspects then confronted Tembo and his three friends, accusing them of showing off and a misunderstanding arose.
One of the suspects drew out a knife and stabbed Tembo in the thigh. He bled profusely until he became unconscious and died in his car, Insp Mahoko said.
The matter was reported to the police and Tembo’s body was ferried to Kwekwe General Hospital Mortuary where it awaits a post-mortem.
