PICS: Harare Man killed by friend over Mbanje twist

A brawl over a Mbanje twist claimed the life of a suspected drug addict in Mufakose.

The deceased who was only identified as Joshua was confirmed dead upon admittance at Mufakose Poly Clinic after his friend identified as Raphael fatally assaulted him for daring to ask for a twist of Mbanje that he had been smoking.

Reached for a comment, Police sad they were still to receive a report of the incident but eyewitnesses said that the brawl started when Joshua who was on his way home from a local shebeen where he had purchased an illict brew, Kachasu, asked for a twist of Mbanje from his buddy Raphael.

“Mdhara Raphidza(Raphael) vatorerwa mbanje yavo naJoshua, ndobva vamusundidzira, paadonha pasi, vamurova bhutsu hwani ndobva angoti zii, vanhu vatomboedza kuvadzora kuti munouraya munhu sezvo ari murwereanozivikanwa asi vatoti ngozi yacho inouya kumba kwedu.

Onlookers tried to resuscitate Joshua by rubbing salt on his feet but the efforts were in vain.

One elderly man present at the scene blamed the youths for abusing drugs.

“These two guys were friends, they lived in the same street and it is unfortunate that the other one passed on during the fight. Young people should desist from abusing drugs, these two people were well known for drug abuse and others should learn from this incident that drugs can end lives prematurely,” he said.

Joshua’s relatives could not be reached for a comment at the time of publishing. iHarare
