Masvingo provincial police spokesperson Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the case to Masvingo Mirror and encouraged members of the public to resolve issues without resorting to violence.
The publication reported sources saying that the three brothers, Enias, Billiat and Aram were on their way from a traditional beer drink when a misunderstanding arose between Enias and Aram.
Aram reportedly accused Enias of having given police information that led to his incarceration for six months.
The suspect allegedly struck Enias thrice, twice on the head, once on the left arm and the latter dropped to the ground while bleeding profusely.
Billiat tried to stop the dispute but he was threatened by Aram.
He later returned to the scene only to find Enias unconscious and Aram disappeared from the scene.
Enias was dead by the time Billiat brought a scotch cart from home.
The matter was reported at Chikombedzi Police Station.
