A 35 year-old Chikombedzi man from Pfugari village under Chief Mupapa in Chiredzi stabbed his friend after an argument during a beer drinking binge.
Masvingo provincial police spokesperson Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident and urged people to avoid settling disputes under the influence of alcohol.
“There was an attempted murder case that happened in Chikombedzi on June 03, 2022 after two friends fought during a drinking binge.
“People should not try to resolve disputes under the influence of alcohol and also fighting is not always a way to resolve disputes,” said Dhewa.
Circumstances are that Davison Moyo (31) of Mapusha village under Chief Mupapa area and his friend Enock Chivasa (35) of Pfumari village under the same Chief went to drink beer at Sithole Felen’s house in the same village (Pfumari).
Chivasa took Moyo’s beer without his consent and the latter did not take it lightly leading to a misunderstanding culminating into a fight between the two.
During the fight Moyo was stabbed once with a kitchen knife on the chest, back, and right arm by Chivasa.
The case was reported at Chikombedzi police station leading to arrest of the perpetrator.
Moyo was taken to Chikombedzi hospital where his condition is reportedly stable.
