Tempers rise at burial of Grade 1 cousins Delan and Melissa Benza who were murdered by uncle


TEMPERS flared at the burial of the Benza cousins this afternoon with hundreds gathered demanding the truth surrounding the death of the two.

Tempers flared when Headman Sachirarwe asked the Benzas to tell the gathering what led them to name Solomon Manyama and Passmore Sambaza as the suspects who murdered Delan and Melissa Benza.

The gathering hackled the family spokesperson, Mr Johannes Benza, saying he was hiding the truth.

Tempers further flared with relatives demanding to know the post mortem results which the police said they were not in a position to share with the restive crowd.

Some threatened to disrupt the burial, saying if it took almost a year for Tapiwa Makore to be buried, why the hurry to bury the two cousins.

Earlier on the families took the bodies to the scene where they were murdered for rituals.
