GWERU – A reveler at Mbizo Inn Night Club was recently stabbed to death by a fellow patron who accused the man of snatching his girlfriend.
Midlands police spokesperson, Inspector Ethel Mukwende appealed to members of the public to desist from violence and seek police advice when there is a misunderstanding.
Though the suspect was still on the run by the time of writing, details gathered by TellZim News are that Alex Katambarare (22) of Mbizo Township, Kwekwe, was enjoying a drink with friend at the nightclub.
He then went outside where he met an unidentified woman with whom he began to talk, and this displeased the assailant who complained that Katambare was taking his girlfriend.
Eyewitness and Katambarare's friend, Takawira Chaitezvi said the assailant, whom he identified only as Kelvin, slapped Katambarare in the face, accusing him of snatching his girlfriend.
Katambare tried to flee but was pursued by Kelvin and his friends who then tripped him to the ground and continuously stabbed him with a knife all over his body.
The woman at the centre of the dispute reportedly fled when she noticed that there was serious trouble.local
