Boy (15) Murders Zanu (PF) Terror Master In Revenge For Dad
The event, which left the whole area in shock took place at a church service where Nhamo Machacha had gone to further victimise worshippers in Village 2 near Neshuro Growth Point.
Machacha was an aide to a Zanu (PF) Mwenezi East Member of Parliament Kudakwashe Bhasikiti.
Machacha had brought the church to a stand-still demanding the service to be aborted for reasons best known to himself when the 15 year old boy came from behind and pulled out his knife and stabbed Machacha twice in the stomach.
He was rushed to Neshuro General Hospital but he died before he was attended to due to excessive bleeding.
Masvingo Acting police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Prosper Mugauri, confirmed the incident saying the boy was now assisting the police with investigations.
“We have since arrested the school boy and he is assisting us with investigations. He murdered him at a ZCC (Zion Christian Church)
church meeting,” said Mugauri.
Witnesses said the boy (name supplied) said the state had taken long in taking justice to those who killed his father during the height of
political violence in 2008.
“That boy’s father Lameck Muripo was killed by Zanu (PF) thugs in 2008. Their home was burnt and they were left homeless but the children were still young. However, up to now the culprits including the now deceased were walking free and this boy said he wanted to revenge,” said one of the witnesses.
Bhasikiti pledged to meet all funeral expenses but declared a war against Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) in the area.
“There is nothing to hide here… MDC is a party of violence, they need violence and they have provoked us today. How can I keep silent when they slapped us in the face like this?
“They have started it and they must not cry tomorrow,” warned Bhasikiti.
