GOKWE: A 41-year-old man from Gokwe has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a tout to death in a brawl that ensued after the tout tried to force him to board a bus.

 It is alleged that on August 17, 2017 at around 9PM at Gokwe Bus Terminus, Methulisi Ndingidi was waiting for a Bulawayo bound ZUPCO bus which normally departs Gokwe around 3AM but touts tried to force him to board C.A.G bus.

He vehemently refused.

The tout, Nqobile Phiri, who was in the company of Melusi Ndlovu and other touts who are still at large, then started assaulting Ndingindi for refusing to board a C.A.G bus they were touting for.

Ndingindi (41) of Naison Village, Chief Njelele got angry and stabbed Phiri once on the chest, resulting in the other touts scampering for cover.

Ndingindi was not asked to plead when he appeared before Gokwe Magistrate Ms Evelyn Mashavakure, yesterday, facing a murder charge. STATE MEDIA
