CITE reported a close relative saying the deceased who was driving a blue Honda Fit registration number AEE 4969, was hired by two men to ferry their goods to Roseburn near Solusi on the day he was last seen alive. The relative said:
He was hired on 1 December around 4 along Ntemba Road by some men. It is alleged that two men approached him and presented themselves as Omalayitsha who had had a breakdown and wanted him to ferry their goods to Roseburn along Solusi Road.
He never came back and we started looking for him around the areas along Tsholotsho. When we got in the areas around Chefunye, people said they had spotted the car fuelling.
The relative said they were called by police from Figtree who informed them to come to Manada dam where the body was discovered buried in a shallow grave and covered with some shrubs.
The vehicle has not been recovered.
