Brothers beat uncle to death over witchcraft suspicions

TWO brothers from Mwenezi in the same province are on the run after they killed their 66-year-old uncle on suspicions of witchcraft.

Emmanuel Homera and his brother attacked and killed Jeremiah Tavengwa after accusing him of keeping some traditional cloths and charms that they alleged were behind the deaths that were occurring in the family.

The two force-marched Tavengwa to Rutenga and after walking for about 15 km they started beating him all over the body using mopani sticks.

Tavengwa collapsed and the two fled the scene.

Asst Insp Dhehwa urged people to settle disputes through dialogue and desist from resorting to violence.

The deceased’s body was found by village head Gudo from Chitoro village under chief Neshuro and he reported to the police, who took it to Neshuro District Hospital.
