SELFIE LOVING MAN KILLED BY HIPPO
A man has been attacked and killed by a hippopotamus while taking a selfie in Nkayi.
Cops have identified the man as Lockeus Dube(40) of Sembewule Village. He had spotted the hippo in a bushy near a water source and decided to take pictures of it using a phone.
The hippo, however, charged and attacked him. The animal dragged him for about 50 metres before dumping him unconscious.
Dube sustained injuries on the thigh and buttocks where he was bitten by the hippo. An unconscious Dube was rushed to Gokwe District Hospital where he was pronounced dead on admission. Postmortem was waived by a magistrate.
