In two separate shocking incidents, a 15-year-old girl stabbed and killed a 21-year-old rival over a boyfriend while a 17-year-old boy twice attempted suicide after allegedly murdering a friend.

Police reported Monday that they arrested the 15-year-old minor for the murder.

“On 20/03/22, Police in Plumtree arrested a female juvenile (15) for a murder case where she fatally stabbed another woman (21) with a knife at Magodi Village, Plumtree after a misunderstanding over a boyfriend,” police said via their official Twitter handle.

The ZRP also reported an almost similar case in which a 17-year-old male juvenile was arrested “in Binga on 18/03/22, in connection with a case of murder where he grudgingly stabbed his friend with a knife (17)”.


“The suspect later attempted to commit suicide by stabbing himself on the throat with a knife and consumed a pesticide.”

Meanwhile, police in Gwanda Sunday arrested one Prosper Sibanda (26) in connection with a case of murder which occurred in Sitezi Village on 18/03/22.

The suspect, together with eight other accomplices who are still at large, fatally attacked the victim (22) at his girlfriend’s house after an undisclosed misunderstanding.
