MASVINGO – A young man from Mucheke in Masvingo was found by a passerby hanging from a tree behind Ndarama High School at 1am today.
Sources suspect that Lloyd Chimene who had a qurrel with his mother over a missing US$5 note a few days earlier was abusing drugs.
Masvingo Police spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the case but told the Mirror that he was still to get the full facts. He used a tree bark to hang himself.
Chimene had earphones plugged into his ears when his body was found. Sources also said Chimene worked at Chitima as a vendor. He did not write his ZIMSEC A Level last year and was preparing to write in November this year.
Efforts to get a comment from his mother were fruitless.
“The circumstances surrounding his death are not clear. He seemed unbothered when we spoke with him yesterday. Lloyd was last seen at around 8pm.
“He allegedly had a quarrel with his mother over a missing US$5 note. We suspect he was taking drugs which pushed him over the edge,” said a source. https://masvingomirror.com
