A woman believed to be a prostitute was found dead in a lodge in Mutoko and police suspect she was killed by a client who had hired her for the night. The incident happened on Saturday when the now deceased was picked up by an unknown man at a night club. The woman was found dead with head injuries and the motive behind the killing is still not known.

National police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi said the incident occurred between 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.

The man was seen with the woman going into the room. The following day at around 11am a cleaner went to the room and found the door open.

The cleaner then saw the woman’s body and a report was made to the police. Chief sup Nyathi appealed to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the suspect to contact any nearest police station.

In a similar incident last September, a 28-year-old Harare man appeared in court for strangling to death a prostitute he had hired for the night under unclear circumstances.
