By A Correspondent- Enerst Makwembe (21) was killed by a 32 year old man only identified as Gumede at Unit J shops in Chitungwiza around 9pm on Sunday.
Sources privy to the development said Makwembe was murdered for spilling Gumede’s beer in a glass bottle.
Said the source:
“The late Makwembe broke a glass belonging to Gumede and this did not go down with him. People tried to restrain Gumede and it looked like the two had found each other before Gumede just took the broken glass and charged at Makwembe and he sliced his throat using the broken glass. He collapsed and died instantly.”
Residents here were baying for Gumede’s blood when he was brought at the murder scene by the police Tuesday, ZimEye can reveal.
“Gumede must thank the police because the people here would have killed him because of what he did. Residents here are bitter,” added another source.
Gumede is set to appear at court facing murder charges.
