IN A SUSPECTED case of murder a 40-year-old man from Bulawayo’s Old Lobengula suburb was found hanging from the roof trusses of his room with a piece of cloth shoved into his mouth.
The incident happened last week on Sunday. B-Metro visited the late’s Farai Gandidzawana (40) home but there was no one.
A resident who requested anonymity told this publication that the deceased was living alone at his rented place and was employed by Bulawayo City Council (BCC) as a casual worker.
However, he spent two days without reporting for duty. According to a source his workmate George Sibindi (48) got worried and went to Gandidzawana’s lodgings.
The resident said when he got there he knocked at the door but there was no response.
After breaking the door to the deceased’s room he found him hanging from roof trusses with his hands tied with a piece of wire.
“An old dish towel was shoved into his mouth while his legs were tied to a base of a bed with an electric cord,” said a source.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele confirmed the incident but would not give much information for fear of jeopardising police investigations.
