“The party was held on October 21 and it is not a good time considering that other family members are still mourning,” said a vendor who operates near Makores homestead.
A neighbour Nyamuzihwa, who said he lived close to the Makores in Mufakose said Thanks had been well behaved and he was still to come to terms if he committed a crime.
“I told Thanks that his relatives had been arrested in connection with the murder of Tapiwa and as I dropped my pack of tomatoes home, I returned to talk to him but he had disappeared.
“The next thing was that he was arrested a few days later,” said Nyamuzihwa.
