In a tragic turn of events, the lifeless body of Isaac Nyamazana (24), a caretaker residing along Carrick Creagh Road in Borrowdale, was discovered hanging from a tree Tuesday morning. Isaac, who was due to face theft charges in court, had been entangled in a web of alleged criminal activities.
According to Alice Marufu, Isaac’s live-in partner, he had been involved in illicit activities, including the sale of his employer’s possessions and the unauthorized rental of his employer’s cottage. Alice revealed that Isaac had leased the cottage to a tenant in May and had also sold various items, such as solar panels, doors, and electrical goods that belonged to his employer.
The truth about Isaac’s actions was brought to light when a dispute arose between him and the tenant over an unexpected rent increase. The tenant promptly reported the matter to the property managers, who were bewildered to discover that Isaac had been accommodating a tenant in the house without authorization. Isaac was slated to appear in court to answer for his actions on the day his life came to a tragic end.
Alice recounted that Isaac left home around 5 pm the previous day, seemingly unaware of the fate that awaited him. Devastatingly, news broke that Isaac had taken his own life, leaving behind a trail of unanswered questions.
In a chilling twist, it was discovered that Isaac had purchased a Nissan Xtrail, which he had parked at his employer’s residence on Wheeldon Road. The vehicle was found loaded with some of the stolen goods he had obtained.
Neighbours revealed that Isaac had recently expelled his wife from their shared home, opting to live with Alice after acquiring his car. The sudden change in circumstances raised eyebrows among those who knew him.
Law enforcement swiftly intervened, removing Isaac’s lifeless body from the scene and transporting it to Parirenyatwa Hospital mortuary for further examination.
The community now grapples with the shock of Isaac’s untimely demise, as his alleged criminal activities and subsequent tragic end cast a dark shadow over the neighbourhood.
