Lloyd Shunje | A man from Rusape’s Tsanzaguru high density suburb was last week arrested on attempted murder charges after he allegedly struck his daughter’s 50-year-old boyfriend, Patrick Njanjari, with a log on the head.

Njanjari was assaulted after he showed up at Never Munai’s house at around 01:00 hrs trying to see the accused’s daughter and is reported to be battling for his life at Tsanzaguru clinic.

Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa confirmed the incident and urged members of the public to desist from taking violent measures as a solution to problems.

“We arrested Munai for attempted murder in Rusape for allegedly beating Njanjari with a log for stalking his daughter last weekend. We appeal to members of the public to refrain from taking violent measures but rather go for counseling,” said Kakohwa.
