    CHIREDZI – There was drama at a funeral in Zaka on December 24, 2016 when a prominent businessman in the area was assaulted for allegedly possessing goblins that caused the death of an employee who had just joined his company.
    Witnesses said Elisha Maravanyika who runs furniture shops in Masvingo town and at Jerera and Nyika Growth Points had to run into his vehicle for cover after relatives of Tariro Gumbire (19) attacked him after accusing him of causing the later's death.
    Maravanyika belongs to the rags to riches story after rising from a barber to the owner of a sprawling business empire.
    Maravanyika who confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with The Mirror said he was assaulted by people who are jealous of his success.
    "They are accusing me of causing the death of my employee. If you succeed in life people start to bring in a lot of theories.
    "I cannot cause the death or save someone from dying," said Maravanyika.
    Selestino Gumbire who is brother to the late Tariro also confirmed the incident and said his brother worked for only two weeks at Maravanyika`s place before he became mysteriously ill.
    He said Maravanyika only notified them of the illness after some days and the later died soon after admission at the hospital
    Maravanyika was a barber at Jerera Growth Point and now his furniture business empire has grown vastly. He now owns a number of properties in Jerera and Masvingo as well as various vehicles and trucks. He recently moved to stay in Masvingo where he also runs a furniture shop in town.local news
