A Kwekwe Polytechnic Mechanical Engineering Lecturer, Paul Charadza, was found dead in his apartment in Msasa Park in Kwekwe on Monday.
The lecturer’s body was discovered by fellow tenants after he had been missing for about 24 hours.
Kwekwe Polytechnic Principal Evans Musara said the now deceased was last seen on Friday when he reported for duty and he had no signs of being unwell.
Charadza’s uncle, Joram Matina said the body was found with traces of blood on the mouth, nose, and eyes and the family was awaiting a post mortem to understand what happened. He said:
Although we are not saying there was foul play, we cannot rule out that factor totally. We await the results of the post-mortem.
We are still in shock as he did not have a history of any sickness. He was fit and was doing his daily work, as usual, we were shocked to hear he had passed on.
Charadza’s body was found on Monday after he had gone missing on Sunday morning.
His body was taken to Bulawayo for post-mortem and the results are expected on Thursday.
