Mysterious lightning strikes carpenter while working on house roof


A 27-YEAR-OLD carpenter from Kwekwe met an untimely end after being struck by a bolt of lightning whilst doing some construction work.

Knowledge Ncube working on the roof of a client’s house when he was struck by a bolt of lightning.

His relative, Mr Prince Vhiriri, confirmed the incident.

“We are still to come to terms with the whole incident which took Ncube’s life,” said Mr Vhiriri.

“We received a call from one of his workmates to the effect that Knowledge had been killed in a lightning incident,” said Mr Vhiriri.

He, however, said the family suspected foul play as there was no rain on the day.

“There were no rains on the day. Some clouds only gathered in the sky but there wasn’t even a drizzle. The next thing we learn that a person was killed as a result of lightning, it’s shocking,” Mr Vhiriri said.
