A 44-year old Kwekwe man who was based at Mpandawana growth point in Gutu, last week hanged himself after discovering that his girlfriend had cleaned his bank account without his knowledge.

Norman Muza was found hanging from a tree by his sister, Rebbeca Chipatiso, with a suicide note in his pocket stating that he had taken his life because his long-time girlfriend he had trusted had cleaned $1 600 out of his bank account.

Masvingo Provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Nkululelo Nduna confirmed the incident and said on 22 May this year Muza discovered that his Kwekwe-based girlfriend had withdrawn all the cash from his account.

Miffed by his girlfriend’s behavior Muza called his sister, telling her that he was sick and there was nothing to live for anymore and as such he wanted to die.

Muza is said to have given his sister directions were she would find his dead body.

“Chipatiso went to the place where Muza had told her and found his body hanging from a tree with a note inside his pocket and she alerted the police,” said Nduna.

The police urged people to solve disputes by seeking counselling from the elderly people, police and professional counsellors.
