Man found dead in police custody


A man, identified as Martin Dube from Bulawayo’s Entumbane suburb, was involved in a violent altercation with his in-laws that tragically culminated in loss of life, including his own.

The incident unfolded when Dube visited Emganwini suburb to pick up his children for a weekend visit, but tensions escalated over allegations of unpaid child maintenance. In a fit of rage, Dube reportedly grabbed a kitchen knife and attacked his father-in-law, stabbing him in the arm. Despite attempts by others to intervene, Dube continued his assault, also stabbing his mother-in-law in the breast and thigh.

Neighbors responded to the disturbance, prompting Dube to flee. However, he was pursued and captured by bystanders who then turned him over to the authorities at Nkulumane Police Station.

Facing charges of attempted murder, Dube tragically ended his own life while in police custody, prior to his scheduled court appearance. Law enforcement officials refrained from immediate commentary on the incident.

The series of events underscores a devastating escalation stemming from a domestic dispute, resulting in injuries and loss that have deeply affected the families involved.
