A BUHERA man reportedly died after he was beaten up by his cousin for assaulting their 76-year old granny.

Police said the incident happened at Svosva village on January 29 at around 15 00hrs.

Inspector Enock Chishiri said Steven Svosva (30) came home heavily drunk and started assaulting his grandmother Takazivei Svosva for an unknown reason.

Sensing danger the granny ran away and sought refuge at one of her grandsons Philip Zivanai Murimi’s homestead.

An irate Murimi confronted Steven and assaulted him with booted feet until he became unconscious.

“Steven was rushed to Murambinda mission hospital where he was admitted and passed away the following day around 1600hrs,” said Chishiri.

The matter was reported to police leading to the arrest of Murimi who is still assisting with investigations.

“We urge members of the public to solve their disputes amicably without resorting to violence. Those who take law into their own hands will face the consequences,” said Insp. Chishiri.
