A scuffle between two touts operating at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals’ ‘small gate’ along Leopold Takawira road ended in tragedy after one of them succumbed to clenched fists on the face.
The now deceased Mafu Sipho (58) who was commonly known as Sibale was struck by Blessing Stephen after a row over ZWL$350 which the victim had snatched from Stephen.
