In a bizarre incident, a 42-year-old Karoi man struck a drinking mate – who later died of head injuries in hospital – for trying to stop a fight between the suspect’s wife and girlfriend.
Police revealed the incident via their official Twitter handle Thursday.
Said the ZRP, “Police in Karoi are investigating a murder case in which John Makore (42) died whilst admitted at Karoi District Hospital on 20/12/21 after he was struck with a wooden log on the head by the suspect, Brian Muripo at Buffallo Downs Business Centre on 19/12/21 at midnight.
