2 amnesty beneficiaries murder uncle



KWEKWE – Two Gokwe brothers who were released from prison on amnesty recently allegedly murdered their uncle last Tuesday after he supposedly reported them to the Police for carrying an unregistered firearm leading to their incarceration.
Acting Midlands Police Spokesperson Assistant Inspector Fungai Ngawagare told The Mirror that the incident happened last Tuesday around 7am at Farm 21, Chemagora in Gokwe South.
Evans Mpamhanga (25) and Elvis Mpamhanga (21) are currently battling for life at Gokwe South District Hospital after a mob that overheard them telling their uncle about the incident severely assaulted them.
Evans and Elvis allegedly struck their uncle Kennedy Mpamhanga (62) using a log and stones on the head several times leading to his death. He was buried at Kadoma Westview Cemetery on Saturday. He was a retired Prison officer.
Sources told The Mirror that the incident allegedly happened in full view of the brothers parents.
Circumstances are that on the day, the brothers went to Forever Sikochi’s (47) homestead and quizzed him over why he had not filled a water tank at their parents homestead.
They force marched him to the Kwekwe-Gokwe road while threatening to kill him. They then met Kennedy along the way. He was returning from Kadoma and they force marched the two back to Sikochi’s homestead.
The brothers threatened to assault Mpamhanga to death with an axe leading Sikochi to flee the scene. They then assaulted Mpamhanga with a log and stones leading to his death.
Evans and Elvis then went to house number 3711 Sasame 1, Gokwe town where they informed Job Mpamhanga (76) what had happened.
A gang of about 10 men overheard them narrating what had happened and went on to assault the brothers using axes, machetes and knobkerries. They left the brothers unconscious.
