Tragedy struck in Mabvuku Tafara over the weekend as two people died in two separate incidents involving wells.
In Mabvuku a man died and his friend was taken to hospital after a well collapsed on him as they were scooping mud in an attempt to deepen the well.
Efforts to rescue him proved fruitless as bricks from wall had piled on him. The deceased is yet to be buried as the family awaits postmortem results.
The young man who was helping him has since been released from hospital after being treated for shock.
In another bizzare incident a child fell into a well in Tafara while playing.
It is alleged that other kids were present as the child opened the cover of the well to peep and fell into the well.
Though the incident occurred in Tafara mourners were gathered in Mabvuku at the child’s grand parents. The child was buried at Tafara cemetry on Monday.
