A suspected prostitute was found dead in a lodge in Mutoko after she was allegedly killed by a client who had hired her for a night over the weekend. The woman was found dead with head injuries and bruises on the forehead

The motive behind the killing is still not known and police are appealing for information that might assist in investigating the case.

National police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi said the incident occurred between last Saturday night and Sunday morning.

“A certain man went to Kasipiti Sports Club in Mutoko and booked a room which he paid for US$5,” he said.

He said the unknown man was later seen with the woman going into the room.

It is still not clear what transpired between the two.

The following day at around 11am a cleaner went to the room with the intention of cleaning and found the door open.

“The cleaner then saw the woman’s body and a report was made to the police,” Chief Supt Nyathi said.

He appealed to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the suspect to contact any nearest police station.

In September last year, a 28-year-old Harare man appeared in court for strangling to death a prostitute he had hired for the night under unclear circumstances. Freddy Jasam of number 20 Chiguyakuya Road in Mufakose appeared before magistrate Ms Anita Tshuma facing murder charges.
