Farmer struck by lightning whilst ploughing

Farmer struck by lightning whilst ploughing. The now deceased, identified as Philemon Marozva (48), died instantly following a lightning bolt last week Wednesday. A communal farmer from Chitomborwizi in Makonde district was struck and killed by lightning while tilling his groundnut field.

Marozva was buried at Marozva village on Monday at a sombre ceremony that attracted a sizeable number of mourners. Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com, Annah Munetsi who is a close relative of the deceased said the tragedy occurred around 5 pm as light showers fell in the area. She said:

My uncle was attending to his groundnut field when light showers started drizzling in the area. He then instructed his children who were also working the fields to rush home as a heavy downpour was imminent. Suddenly, there was thunder and a bolt that hit Marozva who was using a metal hoe, resulting in him dying instantly.

His eldest son, Noah and other neighbours rushed to the scene and tried to resuscitate the now deceased, but to no avail. Marozva’s clothes, including a cap he was wearing, were reportedly shredded by the lightning.

The now deceased, a member of the Johanne Masowe apostolic church, is survived by two wives and 12 children, with the youngest being five-months-old.
