Beer party ends in blood & death
Bulawayo police have launched a manhunt for a man who allegedly stabbed his neighbour to death for kicking him out from a beer party that he had gate-crashed.
Richard Mpofu (20) of Pumula North allegedly knifed Dennis Nobert Ncube (22) on his neck in a fit of anger after accusing him of being stingy with beer that was not his.
According to local paper Chronicle , Ncube allegedly staggered for about 45 metres while clutching his neck before collapsing and dying on the spot.
Mpofu allegedly fled and is still on the run.
According to eyewitnesses, the “beer-fest” in question was hosted by Ncube’s friend aged 25 who lives alone in a house in the same neighbourhood.
Bulawayo deputy police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube yesterday confirmed Ncube’s death.
“We are investigating a murder case where a 20-year-old man stabbed to death his 22 year-old neighbour. We are informed that the deceased was invited to a party by his friend who is aged 25. While those guys were still drinking beer an uninvited male adult tried to invade the party leading to an altercation with the deceased. The party intruder then stabbed the deceased with a knife,” said Insp Ncube.
Insp Ncube said following the fatal stabbing, Mpofu escaped and is still at large.
“We therefore appeal to members of the public who might have information on his whereabouts to come forward. If anyone has information that may lead to his arrest, they can report to any police station that is nearer to them,” said Insp Ncube.
