IN LIFE there are perhaps a few things worth dying for, but one of them is certainly not a plate of sadza.
Police in Kadoma are investigating a case of murder in which a 38-year-old man was murdered over an argument about a plate of sadza.
The full details surrounding the circumstances of the argument are yet unclear, and in this case only the suspect – 27-year old Farai Hlongwani Mlilo – can provide the answers.
But he is still on the run.
In a statement on Thursday, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) confirmed the incident:
“Police in Kadoma are investigating a case of murder which occurred on November 23, 2022 at Machokoto Compound, Hazel Mere Farm, Patchway.
“The suspect, Farai Hlongwani Mlilo (27) hit the victim, Milton Gido Siziba (38) with a firewood twice on the head after an argument over sadza.”
Police said the victim died on admission at a local hospital, and that the suspect is on the run.
