A Harare blacksmith, Tichaona Gatsi, who worked along the Mukuvisi River in Mbare, Harare was last week found dead, floating in the river in a suspected murder case.
The blacksmith is reported to have gone missing for six days and was only found dead in Mukuvisi River on Friday with a swollen head.
A family friend Mr Willard Chirunga confirmed the death to The Herald saying they are waiting for postmortem results. Chirunga said:
We received the news of his death a few days ago after he went missing for six days.
His collegues who worked with him in Magaba along Mukuvisi River said he left in the afternoon to buy lunch but never returned.
After some days, they called his uncle Mr Anymore Gatsi and told him that an unidentified body had been found floating in the in Mukuvisi River.
He said Gatsi’s uncle then proceeded to Matapi Police Station where he was given an RRB number to use for reference at Harare Central Hospital where the body was being kept.
Chirunga added that Mr Gatsi identified the body as Tichaona’s adding that the family was currently awaiting postmortem results.
