BIKITA-Three relatives of a 13-year Bikita girl allegedly assaulted a neighbour using logs accusing him of raping the girl resulting in his death, Masvingo Police Spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa has said.
Blessing Mabika (25), Kingstone Juro (30) and Tapiwa Moyo (30) assaulted Samuel Murapiro (42) of Muduma Village under Chief Budzi’s area using logs, hoe handles and machetes on Saturday last week.
The incident happened around 10: 30 pm. Murapiro sustained fractured legs, bruises and deep cuts on the face leading to his death.
Dhewa said the trio went to Murapiro’s house and broke down the door. They accused him of raping their sister. Murapiro tried to escape but the gang caught up with him and assaulted him with logs.
The gang then dragged him for about 60 metres from his homestead and allegedly continued to assault him using hoe handles. The trio dragged Murapiro to a secluded area trio noticing villagers who were observing them.
People at Gedhe-Maranyika Business Centre heard about the matter and went to investigate but the gang had already disappeared. Murapiro had already died.
They filed a Police report at ZRP Chikuku Police base at around 1 am. Murapiro’s body was taken to Silveira Mission Hospital for postmortem.
Police managed to arrest Juro and Moyo and is now appealing for information leading to the arrest of Mabika.
