Murder, Robbery Suspect Dies Hours After Eating Food Brought By His Wife

A 44-year-old murder and robbery suspect died of suspected food poisoning while in police custody hours after his wife had reportedly brought him some food.

The suspect, Gift Sabata, was linked to the violent crimes which occurred in Bulawayo between December last year and November this year.

He was arrested in the early hours of 19 November 2022 while hiding at his girlfriend’s house in Cowdray Park. He died on the same day while in police custody. Read a police statement on the case:

On 19th November 2022 at around 1000 hours the suspect died whilst admitted at United Bulawayo Hospitals after experiencing some convulsions with froth coming out of the mouth. The suspect had consumed food and diabetes medication brought by his wife, Mavis Matupe (27).

Sabata was linked to two cases of murder and 13 cases of armed robbery in which the total value stolen is US$58 639 between December 2021 and November 2022 in Bulawayo.

It's likely that the investigating team might have poisoned him maybe after finding out that the accused had significant ill-gotten wealth stashed out somewhere. I know the police detectives can do that as a cover-up to convert that wealth to theirs.

Long back it had been a norm that suspects on detention should not be served with food from outside as accomplices to the crime in a bid to destroy the course of justice would take the opportunity to eliminate the accused suspect to avoid being implicated.
