Mpopoma Man Fatally Stabbed At A House Party

A man from Mpopoma suburb in Bulawayo died after he was fatally stabbed by members of a rival group during a fight at a house party in the suburb, Chronicle reports,

28-year-old Bhekumuzi Nkomo died after he was stabbed on Saturday night at a birthday party by unknown assailants in the suburb according to Bulawayo ZRP Spokesperson Inspector Nomalanga Msebe who said:

We are investigating a suspected murder where a 28-year-old man from Mpopoma was stabbed to death. We are yet to get the full picture on why he was stabbed and by who. But the deceased’s father reported to the police at Zimbabwe Republic Police Traffic West Police Station that his son had been stabbed to death by unknown assailants.

Officers summoned an ambulance which confirmed him dead at about 2AM on Sunday as his body was found lying on the tarmac in the same suburb. The deceased’s father told police that he received a knock at the door, alerting him that his son was killed just before he reported the matter to the police.

Nkomo’s younger brother Mzimkulu narrated the gang fight that resulted in his brother’s unfortunate passing and said:

We were attending a party, just a few blocks from home and while I was inside the yard someone called saying there were people who were fighting with my brother. I called my crew which was with me in the yard and we advanced towards them. They escaped as we approached and we chased after them together with my brother. As we returned, my brother complained that he had been scratched in his chest and collapsed shortly after. I asked him who he was fighting with but he did not respond,

Up to now I don’t know what he was fighting over. Yes, we joined the fight. But I cannot pin-point what caused the fight. It happens during a party that fights involving rival groups break out even over small issues but I don’t know what caused it. What I’ve been told is that he was stabbed by someone called Rabson, although I don’t know where he stays. Police are investigating three people who are suspected to be part of the crew that stabbed my brother but all of them are nowhere to be found.

No arrests have been made so far,
