Man Kills Friend Over Beer

718

A ROW over the sharing of beer between two Marondera friends ended in a fatal fight, a Marondera court heard last week.

Willy Cloud, 51, of Rusike Phase 3, appeared before Magistrate Clever Tsikwa for initial remand on culpable homicide charges after he fought with his friend Crispen Mozinge also of Rusike.

According to state prosecutor, Rumbidzai Katsande, Cloud and Mozinge were watching a soccer match in a bar earlier last month when an argument between the two started over the sharing of beer.

The argument led to a fight with Cloud assaulting Mozinge with clenched fists.

However, the now deceased Mozinge managed to escape from the attack and went home where he died from injuries sustained three days later.

According to a post-mortem report produced in court, Mozinge’s death was due to injuries sustained during the attack.

Magistrate Tsikwa remanded Cloud in custody to later this month for trial.
