Gweru – Mkoba residents were left in shock and fear after the discovery of a naked female body in drainage.
It has been gathered that the now deceased Precious Tshuma (23) of Mkoba 5 might have been murdered after she was involved in a dispute with a yet to be identified man who is suspected to be her murderer.
Police in Gweru are investigating the case as the deceased was found naked with a deep cut on her head in the bushy area in Mkoba on 31 October this year.
On the fateful day it is believed at around 1930hrs the now deceased Tshuma was drinking beer at Mkoba 6 shopping centre with Lillian Buzeta and Claudius Buzeta at around 0030 Tshuma then left the bar with an unidentified man proceeding home.
After one hour Buzeta also left the bar going home whilst on the way he met the suspect (Unknown) who had left the bar with Tshuma heading back to Mkoba 6 Shopping centre.
The suspect then informed Buzeta that he had killed Tshuma after he allegedly attacked her with a bottle.
The suspect went on to show the reveller the body of the deceased which he had dumped into a drainage.
He then ordered Buzeta to accompany him to the shopping centre where he later released him.
A report was later made to the police at Mkoba Police Station and the body was taken to Gweru Hospital mortuary for post mortem.
“Police are appealing to the public who might have information on the whereabouts of the suspect or links to this offence to make a report or make use of the suggestion boxes at any nearest police station,” said Midlands police acting spokesperson Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende.
