In a rather horrific development, a beheaded body of a security guard was found burning on a pile of rubbish in Chiredzi.
Zvazvawa Salani (60) was beheaded and his body set alight with tyres at a plastic recycling yard opposite Chiredzi Magistrates Court.
The community in Chiredzi is still in a state of shock and is struggling to come to terms with the grisly murder of Salani who was a security guard at Maria Mabasa Plastic and Scrap Collection site.
Masvingo provincial police spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the grisly¬† murder which happened on March 26 saying;
‚ÄúThe deceased was employed by a company called Maria Mabasa Plastic and Scrap Collection as a security guard. He was found murdered,‚ÄĚ he said.
According to a police report, on the fateful day Salani reported for a night shift at his work station. He went to his workplace as usual at around 18:30 hours to look after bales of plastics and scraps- and apparently, that was the last time he was seen alive.
The following day, his co-worker, Brian Mandisvita (28) came to relieve him in the morning and never saw him.
Worried about his workmate‚Äôs whereabouts, Mandisvita reported to his boss who later made a police report and came to search for him.
As they were searching for him on the site, they saw a blood trail leading into the fire, where the torso was being burnt using tyres while the head was found in a shrub nearby.
Alarmed by what he had seen Mandisvitsa alerted his boss, who called the police.
According to¬†TellZim, the police have since opened an investigation into the murder as they are trying to establish what happened on that particular day.
