Fullback Sibanda (36) of Binga allegedly shot his 64-year old father, Janika Sibanda, at point-blank range with a double barrel shotgun after an inheritance dispute. Janika had refused to let Fullback inherit his homestead while he was still alive. Fullback is an alleged gangster and is suspected to have fled to Zambia.
Binga District Medical Officer Dr Welcome Mlilo confirmed Janika’s death saying:
We received a patient who had four gunshot wounds. We suspect he may have been shot twice and both bullets exited on the other side. He was shot on the right arm.
The man lost a lot of blood and he passed on along the way to Mpilo Central Hospital where we had transferred him for emergency surgery.
