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.
