    Man stabs Bikita sex worker to death

    TATENDA CHIZU

    BIKITA - A man from Nyika Growth Point has appeared at the local magistrates court charged with murder after he allegedly stabbed a sex worker twice with a knife causing her death.
    The incident happened last Friday at Hightown Night Club.
    According to the State outline Moreblessing Madakuchekwa of  Musavengana Village under Chief Mukanganwi , Charity Matake, a fellow sex worker and the accused Peter Gwari were drinking beer  together at Hightown Night Club.
    At some stage Charity Matake who stayed in the same room with Madakuchekwa decided to retire to bed and she left the two at the bar. When she got home she found Madakuchekwa’s three-months old baby unattended and shortly afterwards the accused arrived and asked Matake to accompany him to his house.
    Matake refused insisting that she wanted to mind the baby that was crying. There was a misunderstanding with Gwari trying to force  Matake to accompany him. Gwari started assaulting Matake with a necklace chain and the deceased arrived at that time.
    Angry at Gwari, the deceased locked the door from outside and cried out to neighbours for help. Gwari allegedly broke the window, jumped out and was sprayed with pepper spray by the deceased. Gwari assaulted the deceased then allegedly pulled out a  knife and stabbed Madakuchekwa twice before running away.
    The deceased dropped to the ground and died.
    Magistrate Calisto Mutema heard the matter on Saturday and remanded the accused in custody to February 15, 2019.
    The matter was reported to the Police by Matake and Madakuchekwa’s body was taken to Silveira Hospital for post mortem. Gwari was arrested by members of the public on his way to Mutare.
