A Mwenezi teacher was arrested last week after he allegedly stabbed and killed a Zanu PF official who was reportedly being loud and disturbing his rest, The Herald reports.
Paulosi Mangoma, the teacher at a local school allegedly stabbed Kennias Dzingirai the Zanu PF ward 13 chairman in Chingwizi, Mwenezi East, in the chest and stomach for disturbing his peace by discussing the just-ended Zanu PF DCC polls.
Police investigations allege that:
Mangoma interrupted the discussion between Cde Dzingirai and his colleagues whom he accused of disturbing his peace and then that a fist-fight broke out between Cde Dzingirai and Mangoma.
This was stopped by others who managed to restrain the two. Mangoma went home, but allegedly returned armed with a kitchen knife, charged at Dzingirai and stabbed him in the chest and stomach.
Dzingirai collapsed and died on the spot and a report was made to police leading to Mangoma’s arrest.
ZRP National Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident and said:
The suspect, a teacher at Batanai Primary School in the Chingwizi area, is assisting police with investigations and will appear in court soon charged with murder.
Dzingirai’s body was taken to a mortuary where it awaits postmortem.
