According to Makho Mumba, the deceased’s cousin, Munengi had earlier visited him on the fateful day and told him that he was in deep trouble. He allegedly said that his life had come to an end and he wanted to kill himself.

The Matabeleland North police spokesperson, Inspector Glory Banda, confirmed the incident and urged the public to report such cases to the police and avoid settling them as a family as that would end up affecting justice for children.
