A post-mortem report suggests that Gumiremhete died due to trauma, head injury and subdural hematoma (collection of blood outside the brain) sustained when the gang punched and struck him with broken bottles all over his body.
The fight left blood gushing out of Guramhete’s deep cuts all over his body. He was then rushed to Mpilo Central Hospital and was later transferred to the United Bulawayo Hospitals after his condition deteriorated and he died on the same day.
Bulawayo Metropolitan provincial police spokesperson Chief Inspector Precious Simango confirmed the incident that the accused have since been arrested and investigations were still ongoing.
