A Triangle mentally challenged man who was rebuked by a woman he had approached requesting for s_ex reportedly went berserk striking several people with a log and killed one man.

Masvingo acting Police spokesperson, Lloyd Masundire confirmed the incident that happened on Saturday last week.

The deceased is Simon Chigoyi, 53, who was allegedly killed by Clever Mhindu, 43.

Masundire advised the public to send mentally unstable relatives for regular check-ups with psychiatrists.

Chigoyi had approached the late Mhindu’s daughter-in-law, Miriam Hlongane, 19, for s_x and was denied.

Reports indicate that people were gathered for traditional beer at Rebecca Madzamatira’s house. Mhindu was holding a wooden stick when he approached Hlongane who was washing dishes and reportedly asked for s_ex.

Hlongane reportedly turned down the proposal and out of frustration, Mhindu hit her on the back with the stick before she ran away.

It is alleged that Mhindu pursued her and returned after failing to catch up with her.

On his way back, he came across Chigoyi who was lighting a cigarette. He hit him with the stick below the left ear and Chigoyi fell unconscious.

Elias Marumbani Chauke disarmed the accused but the latter attacked Chauke with stones and he ran away.
It is further alleged that after failing to catch Chauke, Mhindu returned and finished off Chigoyi by striking him in the head with a hoe. He was disarmed by villagers.
