Missing St Mathias Tsonzo schoolboy Livingstone Sunhwa saga: Human bones and school shoes found


A High School student who reportedly went missing in December is now feared dead after human remains were discovered in a shallow grave.

Livingstone Sunhwa was a student at the St Mathias Tsonzo High School in Watsomba, Manicaland.

The 19-year-old has not been seen or heard from since December 6, 2021, when he reportedly vanished.

Livingstone went missing a day after being arrested and allegedly tortured by the police following a break-in at the school tuckshop.

On Friday, social media personality Madam Boss reported that a search team had discovered human remains in a shallow grave near the boarding school.

Madam Boss had been very vocal in raising awareness about Livingstone and pushing for justice for the missing teen.

In a live video posted on her Facebook page, a heartbroken Madam Boss reported that following a thorough search, the team had discovered human bones and school shoes close to the school.

The human bones, suspected to be part of Livingstone Sunhwa’s remains, include a skull, legs and ribs.

In another post on social media, Madam Boss wrote,

Pacherwa musango takawana mbabvu nemusoro. Livingstone Veduweee.

She later posted another video in which she said that they had discovered Livingstone’s remains. She alleged that the teen’s relatives had confirmed his clothes.

The police are yet to comment on the latest developments in the case.

However, they previously denied charges of assaulting the St Mathias Tsonzo High School student. They also claimed that Livingstone had been released into the custody of the school authorities following his arrest.

Manicaland police spokesperson Inspector Nobert Muzondo previously said,

“There was a break-in at St Mathias Tsonzo High School tuckshop and we made some investigations that (resulted in) Sunhwa being arrested, but we decided to release him in(to the) custody of his headmaster so that he can write his examination, but he disappeared,” Muzondo said

“We are treating the matter in two different ways, one as a wanted person by police and another as a missing person. What his parents are saying are lies, we never assaulted him. Sunhwa is facing unlawful entry and theft charges.”
