Tragic Discovery: Missing 12-year-old boy found dead in cooler box


Investigations are continuing following the death of a Murehwa boy (12) whose remains were discovered in a cooler box.

Arnold Gorembeu reportedly went missing on February 3, 2024, while playing with his friends at Musami Business Centre.

On the day he went missing, Arnold’s father Mr Golden Gorembeu had gone for a business trip in Bindura. The father returned from Bindura and was informed by his mother-in-law Ms Esther Mutetwa (62) who is a vendor at Musami Business Centre, that Arnold was missing.

Reports are that the father assumed that his son was still playing somewhere with his friends, and he immediately left to attend a memorial service in the nearby Chivhinge Village.

It is further reported that the father returned from the memorial service the next day at around 8am and discovered that his son had not slept at home.

He then informed other villagers and a search team was formed, which combed the area in search of the boy to no avail.

This prompted the father to make a missing person report at Musami Post at around 6pm on the same day.

After making the report, the search for the boy continued and it was not until around 8pm that the now deceased’s young brother Genius (7) discovered Arnold’s body in one of the vending cooler boxes.

A report was then made to the police and officers attended the scene.

The body of the boy was later ferried to the mortuary for postmortem.
