A SUSPECTED thief from Fort Rixon Village was axed to death by four men who accused him of stealing a mobile phone.

It is alleged that the incident happened at a beerhall.

Allegations are that the quartet got into an argument, with the now deceased, when they confronted him concerning a missing cellphone.

The four allegedly pulled out an axe, which they used to strike the suspected thief on the head, killing him instantly.

They allegedly dumped his body in a bush. 

Police confirmed the murder on its X page.

They are also investigating circumstances surrounding a murder case in which Munyaradzi Masango (46) was found dead, with two stab wounds on the chest, at a house in Entumbane, Bulawayo, on Thursday.

Investigations into the murder of John Machasi, whose body was found along a road in Ruwa, are underway with the police calling for anyone with information of what could have happened to Machasi to assist them.
