A-38-YEAR OLD man from Gwanda is bat­tling for his life in the in­ten­sive care unit at Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal in Bu­l­awayo af­ter he was found ly­ing un­con­scious on his bed with a deep cut on his head on Tues­day morn­ing.

Mr Ntokozo Moyo was trans­ferred from Gwanda Pro­vin­cial Hospi­tal due to his wors­en­ing con­di­tion.

Po­lice are treat­ing the mat­ter as at­tempted mur­der and are ap­peal­ing to mem­bers of the pub­lic who may have in­for­ma­tion on the mat­ter to ap­proach them.

Mata­bele­land spokesper­son Nde­bele said un­der­way.

“I can con­firm a man was found with a deep cut on his head. No weapon was found but we are sus­pect­ing an po­ten­tial mur­derer is out there. The man was trans­ferred to Mpilo Cen­tral South po­lice In­spec­tor Philisani in­ves­ti­ga­tions were Hospi­tal where he is still in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

“Po­lice are ap­peal­ing to any­one with in­for­ma­tion that may lead to the ar­rest of the dan­ger­ous cul­prit, to come for­ward with the in­for­ma­tion. We are ap­peal­ing to peo­ple to solve their dif­fer­ences am­i­ca­bly and not to re­sort to vi­o­lence” said Insp Nde­bele.

A source said Mr Moyo’s herds­man, Mr Peter Musaka (38), found his em­ployer ly­ing in a pool of blood on his bed in Insindi vil­lage at around 6AM.

“He knocked on Moyo’s bed­room and af­ter get­ting no re­sponse he pushed open the door which was not locked. He dis­cov­ered that he was un­con­scious with a deep cut in his head.

“Musaka rushed to Moyo’s sis­ter’s homestead which is a few me­tres away within the same vil­lage. The two rushed back home and fer­ried him to hospi­tal where he was trans­ferred to Mpilo Cen­tral hospi­tal for fur­ther man­age­ment,” said the source.— @ win­nie_­masara
