Harare duo in soup for killing man over hooker

By Mary Taruvinga


TWO men from Harare’s Kuwadzana suburb are in soup for allegedly killing a local man in cold blood during a fight over a hooker.

Trymore White (25) and Roy Kufahakurotyi (30) were on Friday dragged to court facing murder charges.

They appeared before Harare magistrate, Victoria Mashamba who advised them to seek bail at the High Court.

Allegations against the two arose April 10 this year at K2 Nite Club in the suburb when they were in the company of two ladies of the night identified as Hildah Fourth (18) and Nyaradzai Resoro, aged 28.

Court heard the deceased, whose name has not been disclosed, approached Resoro soliciting for sex.

This allegedly angered the two murder suspects who then confronted the now deceased.

According to prosecutors, Kufahakurotyi was holding a pool stick which he allegedly used to strike the deceased twice on the head with the latter falling down as a result of the attack.

A security guard who witnessed the incident then jumped at Kufahakurotyi trying to disarm him.

While the two were wrestling, court heard White then drew a knife from his pocket and stabbed the deceased three times from the back.

Court heard he also stabbed him on his thigh and hand.

The two then fled from the scene before the case was reported.

It is State’s case that the now deceased died on his way to hospital.

Investigations followed and the suspects were arrested the following day in the city centre while looking for transport to escape to Mazowe.
