Police in Tsholotsho are investigating a murder case after a man from Lupane was bludgeoned to death with a log during a beer brawl.
Matabeleland North police spokesperson Inspector Glory Banda confirmed the arrest of Fios Dube who is accused of murdering Butho Moyo of Zabagwadi Line under Chief Mathuphula.
His cause of death according to police was due to severe assault with a log on the head and all over the body.
“Tsholotsho police received a tip-off from Nicolas Moyo to the effect that Moyo was assaulted by a log all over his body and head by Dube leading to his death,” Banda said.
Banda said Moyo fled towards Jimila Bussiness Centre and lost consciousness at Simunyu School.
He was then discovered the following day at around 10 AM by other two villagers who took him to Jimila Clinic by a scotch cart.
On August 7, he was then transferred to Tsholotsho District Hospital where he succumbed to the injuries three days later.
