Shurugwi – A 16-year-old boy from Shurugwi has been remanded in prison after he allegedly struck and killed an 18-year-old school mate with a stone.
The accused cannot be named because of his age but the deceased is Donald Gazi of Village 10 Zvumwa, Shurugwi North. The accused and the deceased come from the same area.
Violence is said to be rampant among juveniles in the area as they take cue from illegal miners.
The accused appeared before Shurugwi Magistrate Sithabile Zungula on Wednesday last week.

Prosecutor Kwanele Njini said that on June 5, 2022 at around 4pm, the accused was coming from Zvumwa Secondary School with his friend when they met the deceased with his two friends. The three accused the 16-year-old of assaulting the deceased’s brother.
A misunderstanding arose and the two exchanged words. They started fighting and the deceased drew a machete from a satchel and threatened the accused with it. The accused picked up a stone and struck the now deceased who fell down.
Itai Melusi (44) who lives near the scene heard the scuffle and went to investigate. He found the deceased lying on the ground bleeding through his mouth. He was ferried to Zvumwa Clinic where he was pronounced dead.https://masvingomirror.com
