A Bulawayo motorist was fatally assaulted by two men driving a Toyota Quantum, who accused him of causing an accident that resulted in them hitting a cow along the Zvishavane-Mbalabala Road.

The incident happened on April 17, but the now-deceased motorist – identified as Mr Never Sibanda – died on Monday from the injuries sustained in the attack.

Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said investigations are still ongoing.

“Police in Bulawayo are investigating a murder case in which Never Sibanda (33) died on May 30, 2022 after he was assaulted with booted feet and fists all over the body by Anesu Chimanikire (33) and his accomplice, who is still at large, on April 17, 2022 along Zvishavane-Mbalabala road,” he said.

“The suspect and his accomplice accused the victim of causing a road traffic accident in which the suspect, who was driving a Toyota Quantum vehicle, hit a heifer along the road.

“The complainant, who was driving a Mazda Bongo vehicle, had stopped along the road and turned on hazard lights to allow the cattle to cross, but the suspect did not stop and hit the crossing beasts.”
