    GWERU - A 17 year old sex worker who stays in Mkoba, Gweru is in Police custody after she allegedly stabbed and killed a colleague with a knife for using her bathing sponge without her permission.
    Andile Masuku (17), a well known teen sex worker at Mkoba 16 shops was stabbed by Wendy Banda (17) last Monday.
    The two were renting a room each at the same house in Mkoba 16.
    Midlands Provincial Police Spokesperson Ethel Mukwende confirmed the death of Masuka whom she said died a day after being stabbed by Banda.
    "Police is investigating a case where a 17 year old teenager was stabbed and later on died at Gweru General Hospital. On October 2, 2017 Banda went to the bathroom intending to take a bath, she discovered that her bathing sponge was wet and she assumed that somebody had used it.
    "Banda enquired from other tenants at the house who could have used her sponge and she could not get a satisfactory answer. Banda targeted Masuka and the two had a misunderstanding and started fighting.
    "Another tenant intervened and the suspect went to her room where she came back with a knife which she used to stab the deceased.
    "The deceased was taken to Gweru General Hospital where she died. Police is taking this opportunity to plead with members of the public to desist from violent tendencies as they lead to unnecessary loss of lives," said Mukwende.
