IN a chilling incident, a man was attacked by yet to be identified assailants who cut open his head and removed the brain, gouged his eyes, slashed off his right ear and stabbed him all over the body before dumping his naked body near a house in Mzilikazi in Bulawayo.
The naked and heavily mutilated body of the man was discovered near Mashumba shops opposite Happy Valley Tavern yesterday morning.
A portion of the man’s brain was found in a bushy area close to a stream and vegetable garden approximately 65 metres away from where the body was lying. It is also suspected that the assailants washed the body in a sewer stream near the scene before dumping the body near a house in the area. Police also identified three bloodied stones which are believed to have been used to crush the man’s head.
ZRP National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said police were investigating a case of murder.
“The body seems to have been dragged and dumped away from the murder scene. The deceased is yet to be identified and the motive is not yet known.
There are no suspects at the moment,” said Asst Comm Nyathi. – Soccer 24
