Police officers leap into action to round up some vendors who were still operating after the 3PM Covid-19 regulations to close shop in the Bulawayo city centre yesterday

Constable Luke Mafunda not only lost his gnashers but his employee, Albert Matangaidze, also stabbed him in the stomach, for terminating his contract.

A police officer who runs a pool table business at Pumula North high-density suburb shop in Bulawayo lost four teeth after he was hit with a rock by an employee he had just fired.

Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident, saying Matangaidze had been arrested. An eyewitness, Clifford Phiri, said the incident occurred on Monday at around 09:30 PM when Mafunda fired Matangaidze and hired another man. Said Phiri:

Matangaidze was visibly drunk as he confronted his boss accusing him of terminating his contract without informing him or stating the reasons which led him to do so. Mafunda told him that he felt he was doing him a disservice as he was not managing his snooker well resulting in him making losses.

[Matangaidze] charged at Mafunda, saying you can’t do this to me” and stabbing him in the stomach. Mafunda fell on the ground. While he was writhing in agony on the ground, Matangaidze reached for a rock and hit him several times on the head and mouth causing him to lose four teeth.
