Gang Warfare Goes Horribly Wrong: One Dead As Lupane Villagers Go On Rampage
A 19-year-old man lost his life after two rival gangs from neighbouring villages in Lupane were involved in a violent clash.
Gangs from Lupaka and Dlobolobo villages under Headman Ngubo and Chief Mabhikwa clashed over a yet to be known grudge using knobkerries, catapults and machetes. According to reports, due to the long-running feud, the gangs attack each other whenever they meet.
Sources who spoke to the Chronicle said that a three-man gang from Lupaka comprising of Phumulani Sibanda (43), Nelson Ndlovu (27) and another person only identified as Bruce allegedly armed themselves with knobkerries, machetes, catapults and logs and attacked anyone from Dlobolobo Village in retaliation for the attack on one of their colleagues. In the process, the trio assaulted Brotherton Tshuma of Dlobolobo Village who died on the spot.
Police spokesperson for Matabeleland North Chief Inspector Siphiwe Makonese said,
I can confirm that we received a report about gang fighting which resulted in the death of one person in Lupaka, Lupane.
…Phululani Sibanda, Nelson Ndlovu and another suspect identified as Bruce teamed up and armed themselves with catapults, knobkerries and logs and advanced towards Lupaka villagers.
They chased after the now deceased Brotherton Tshuma and his friend Elberson Dube. The suspects caught up with Tshuma and attacked him.
