Police picked up a traditional healer, Isaac Diningo (45) in connection with the death of the three men. He is a n’anga from Madziva.
He was arrested on Thursday, April 29 in Chishoko village, under Chief Dotito in Mt Darwin.
He led police to where he was keeping the concoction he gave to the three men. On the way, the n’anga attempted to flee using his motorbike but police managed to apprehend him.
It is believed he had an accomplice when he allegedly fed the men with an unknown concoction. His accomplice is on the run.
It is said they had a lot of money and they wanted some charms to help them in boosting their business. It is not clear how much these men were carrying.
Maybe the n’anga desired the cash these men had and decided to kill them before dumping the bodies at the farm.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi on Friday said investigations into the matter were ongoing.
The three bodies were discovered on 25 April near a dam with their vehicle, a silver Honda CRV parked close by.
They were near a bus stop along the Bindura-Mt Darwin Road and about half a kilometre from Umfurudzi toll gate.
Two of the dead men have been identified as Medio Kashiri (52) and Anthony Ndawana also aged 52.
