Man murdered for ‘showing off’

Seven men are on the run for the murder of a 30-year-old man, who was stabbed for allegedly ‘showing off’ at a bar in Kwekwe’s area of Munyati.

The now deceased David Tembo (30), was attacked by seven assailants as he tried to buy beer at Dollar Bar on September 13.

Police confirmed the incident, saying the assailants were on the run after committing the heinous act.

“It was reported that the now deceased Tembo, of Trafalgar 63 Mine in Kadoma arrived at Dollar

Bar in the company of three of his friends intending to buy beer. They found the bar closed with seven unknown men seated outside.,” said Midlands Provincial Spokesperson Inspector Emanuel Mahoko.

One of the men then awakened the bar lady who then sold beer to Tembo and his friends.

“The suspects took out knives and one of them stabbed Tembo on the thigh. He bled profusely until he became unconscious and died in his car,” he said.

The matter was reported to the police and Tembo’s body was ferried to Kwekwe General Hospital Mortuary where it awaits post-mortem.
