An innocent bystander tragically lost his life after being struck in the head by a stray brick thrown during a fight between two brothers in Guruve on May 22, according to police.
Tongai Magocha, 53, died the following day from head injuries sustained when the brick hit him. Edward Chiyanike, 33, has been arrested and charged with murder.
Police say Chiyanike and his 40-year-old brother Encos were fighting when bystander Nyasha Mapfumo, 25, tried to separate them. An annoyed Chiyanike then reportedly picked up a brick and threw it at Mapfumo, who managed to dodge it. However, the brick continued flying and struck Magocha, who had been watching the fight from a distance.
Police have warned the public that violence can have devastating consequences for those not even involved in disputes.
