Binga Axe Killer Explains Why He Axed 5 People

A Gokwe man who was living with his sister in Binga, who went berserk and axed 5 people to death in cold blood last week explained why he axed those 5 people who were his brother in law’s neighbours in court, The Chronicle reports.

Christopher Gotore told the court that he had a recurring dream in which he saw the deceased trying to kill him. According to the publication, Gotore:

Told the court that he killed the victims because he was haunted by a recurring dream where he always saw the victims in a vision visiting him with pigs and threatening to kill him. He said one of the victims Admire Nyangarai and his brother-in-law Mr Bruce Sibanda’s aunt Chiravigwa Sibanda threatened to kill him in his sleep.

The magistrate has ordered that he be examined by 2 psychiatrists before his next court appearance on 24 March.
