Death is everyone’s way they say and every soul deserves a good rest but definitely not in a sleeping bag like what a fellow brother did to his brother in Gravelord, Mhangura village.
On the 18th of January a young man from gravelord murdered his brother over disappearance of food in their pantry and buried him in a sleeping bag then dumped him in the bush.
The 23year old Ashley Chitofu and Cosmas Chitofu (35) got into a fight after Cosmas fumed about Ashley’s behavior of taking food giving it to his friends and lovers from the store room.
Inspector Margaret Chitove, the Mashonaland West District Police Officer testifies that the two brothers had an argument and ended up fighting though the fight did not end well as Ashley hit Cosmas’s chest with a brick that made him to start vomiting blood.
“Vaviri ava vakatanga kukavadzana apo Cosmas Chitofu aipomera munin’ina wake Ashley kuti aitora chikafu achinopa Shamwari dzako mumba mosara musina chekudya nokudaro vakatanga kurwisa nezvibhakera.
Ashley Chitofu anonzi aona zvibhakera zvapisa akazongonga chidumbu chechidhinha ndokurova nacho mukoma wake pachipfuva akabva apunzikira pasi ndokutanga kututsa ropa.”
The police officer has it that Ashley died on the spot. Since Cosmas realized he had committed a crime he wrapped the body in blankets, zipped it in a sleeping bag then dumped it in the bush.
“Vagari vemudunhu iri vakazoona kuti mutumbi wemunhu waidyiwa. Vakazoongorora ndokuziva mbatya dzemufi uyu uyewo nebhegi raaishandisa jena rekumasowe sezvo aipinda chechi yeJohane Masowe weChishanu.”
According to the police officer, Cosmas was later charged guilty of murdering his brother Ashley after some investigations and questions and got arrested.
