He said the two were shouting outside threatening to kill Mpofu for allegedly having love affairs with their wives before they broke the door to the bedroom hut.

Mpofu tried to run away but one of the two suspects grabbed him. Said Asst Insp Mahohoma:

The suspects started assaulting him with logs and a spear. Mpofu’s wife phoned the village head who rushed to the scene and found the two still assaulting Mpofu who was lying in a pool of blood.
