Man Fatally Assaulted In Dispute Over Beer-sharing

A man from Masvingo was brought before a magistrate this week following a fatal altercation at a bar over beer-sharing.

Tanaka Maringire (26), from Chief Chikwanda area in Masvingo, appeared before the Masvingo Magistrates’ Court on murder charges under Section 47 of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act Chapter 9:23.

On May 11, 2024, Maringire was at a bar in Rumwanda Business Centre, Masvingo, accompanied by Jefrees Mukonzi and friends Tichaona Makuvise and Philmon Mugovera.

The now-deceased bought his beer and shared it with the accused person. When the beer was about to be finished he refused to continue sharing which irritated Maringire who proceeded to play pool (snooker).

Tichaona Makuvise touched the snooker table, which infuriated the accused person who poked him with a cue stick.

The now-deceased attempted to de-escalate the situation, which angered Maringire further who then grabbed a board from a broken chair and struck the deceased three times on the forehead.

The injured man staggered out of the bar, complaining of head and arm pain, and then collapsed. Friends helped him up and attempted to take him home.

Unfortunately, he collapsed again a short distance away. Despite efforts to revive him with water, he remained unconscious.

His mother was called, and she rushed him to Chipinda Clinic. He was later transferred to Masvingo Provincial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Maringire has been remanded in custody until May 29, 2024.
