Police in Beitbridge are investigating circumstances surrounding the death of an unidentified man whose body was found in a roadside trench in the town.
Beitbridge Police district Chief Superintendent Tichaona Nyongo said they were still gathering facts on the matter.
Preliminary information showed that the deceased did not have shoes and there were no signs of a struggle on the scene.
It is suspected the man may have been murdered elsewhere and his body dumped in the trench along the Beitbridge-Harare Road.
In an unrelated case, the police have warned members of the public against taking the law into their hands after a mob fatally assaulted a young man for allegedly breaking into a house at a place called Hallgate Business Centre. Police said:
The public is warned against taking the law into their hands. This follows a murder case which occurred on 17/08/22 in Maramba where a male juvenile (15) was assaulted by nine suspects on allegations of breaking into a house at a Hallgate Business Centre.
The suspects took the unconscious victim to a local private clinic where he died upon admission.
The Police have since arrested Weston Karidza (19) and Alvin Sigauke (19) in connection with the case.
