A TWENTY-YEAR-OLD karate trainer was found hanging from a tree in Milton Park yesterday.

It is reported that Samukange’s karate orange belt was used to hang him. Samukange’s cousin Dorcas Maosa who used to stay with him said she last saw the deceased on Tuesday around 6pm holding the orange belt.

“We are saddened to lose him this way and he never communicated to us anything that might have led to this,” said Maosa.

“I was the one staying with him and when he left home around 6pm he never showed distress and no one quarreled with him.

“He used to take drugs and has not been conducting karate training probably due to Covid-19 restrictions.

“He had turned to vending and was very popular with local boys, with some of them being his students,” said Maosa.

Police attended the scene and Samukange’s body was taken to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals mortuary for postmortem. Mourners are gathered in Unit K, Chitungwiza.
