    Warinda was alone at the house when he shot himself. Sources said he made a first gunshot and after a while he produced a second shot which prompted neighbors to rush to Warinda's homestead.

    Allegations are that 30 minutes before he shot himself, Warinda assaulted his wife with logs and a week earlier he shot dead a dog .
    The matter was reported to the Police and the post mortem was carried out on Tuesday in Harare. Warinda was buried on Wednesday (yesterday) in Marondamashanu.
