National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident and another that happened in Bindura. He said:
The Police is appealing for information which may lead to the arrest of Innocent Chari aged 22 and Enock Chari aged 22 who are wanted for a murder case which occurred on August 23, 2021, at Chapeta Village, Zaka. The suspects assaulted the 39-year-old victim with stones after an argument while drinking beer.
In a related case, police in Bindura arrested Yusufu Sumani aged 33 in connection with a murder case which occurred at Maganyani Business Centre on August 20, 2021. The suspect stabbed the victim aged 37 with a broken bottle on the hand after accusing the victim of having an affair with his girlfriend.
He said investigations on the cases were still ongoing and urged the public to desist from solving differences through violent ways.
There has been an increase in murder and hit-and-run cases countrywide and police continue to urge members of the public to respect the sacredness of human life.
This comes after police were already investigating a number of such cases.
