Fight Over Rent Ends In Tragedy As Tenant Stabs Landlord To Death
A fight over rent ended in tragedy after a Kwekwe landlord was stabbed to death by his 24-year-old tenant.
Victor Moyo was arrested after he killed his landlord Prayer Banda (22) of Mbizo 18 in Kwekwe following a clash over rent.
Midlands police spokesperson Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko confirmed the tragic incident which happened at around 2 am on Monday to the State media saying;
“We are investigating a case of murder of a 22-year-old man who died after being stabbed once with a knife by a tenant.”
According to the police report, the now-deceased arrived home in the early hours of the morning. He forced open a tenant’s bedroom door ordering him to vacate the room.
A misunderstanding ensued and the now-deceased produced a knife in an attempt to stab the tenant.
The now deceased was overpowered and disarmed. Tables turned as Moyo used the same knife to stab the now deceased who bled profusely.
Banda tried to seek assistance from his neighbours but collapsed and died before he could get any help.
The matter was reported to the police leading to Moyo’s arrest. Banda’s body was ferried to Kwekwe General Hospital Mortuary where it awaits a post-mortem.
Inspector Mahoko urged members of the public to solve disputes amicably without resorting to violence.
In an almost similar development, iHarare reported that a landlady from Glen View removed doors and roofing sheets from her house to force defaulting tenants to pay rentals.
The incident left four children sleeping in the open as the landlady demanded that the children’s mothers pay up.
Two sisters only identified as Tsitsi and Mai Chelsea confirmed their failure to pay rentals for the past nine months arguing that Covid-19 negatively affected their sources of income.
Their effort to seek protection from Glen View police hit a brick wall when law enforcement agencies referred them to the rent board for determination of their case.
