A GWANDA man has been arrested for allegedly ganging up with two accomplices, who are still at large, and beat up a man to death in a dispute over a woman.

Alfred Moyo (21) from Guyu who has been remanded in custody to September 18 was not asked to plead when he appeared before Gwanda magistrate, Ms Lerato Nyathi.

Prosecuting, Ms Ethel Mahachi said on August 10 Moyo met Ntuthuko Nyoni at Guyu Business Centre and accused him of snatching his girlfriend.

Nyoni dismissed the allegations and threatened to stab Moyo with a knife if he continued making them. Moyo later left the business centre and went home. He later returned to the business centre at around 8PM and teamed up with his two friends who are still at large.

“They assaulted Nyoni several times with a knobkerrie and axe handle and further stabbed him with a spear on the head. Nyoni sustained serious injuries and died on the following day while admitted to Mpilo Hospital,” Said Ms Ethel Mahachi.
