THE Zimbabwe Republic Police has launched an investigation into the murder of a 57-year-old man from Zhombe who was found dead with missing body parts and a skinned scalp.

In a suspected case of a ritual murder, Fanuel Mwale aged 57 who was a teacher at Rio Tinto High School in Zhombe was found dead close to the local business centre on the 19th of this month.

According to the police, Mwale was last seen on the 18th of this month after work.

His lifeless body was found the following day with missing eyes, nose and ears.

His head was also skinned with an unknown sharp object.

Police have since launched an investigation into the bizarre incident which is suspected to be a ritual killing.

Meanwhile, five people died while 35 others were injured in two separate fatal road traffic accidents last week.

In an accident that occurred on Thursday two people were killed while 12 others were injured when a Toyota Dyna vehicle veered off the road before overturning and landing on its roof along Harare-Nyamapanda Road.

The bodies of the victims were taken to Murewa Hospital mortuary for postmortem while the injured were admitted at the same hospital.

Three other people were killed on Friday while 23 others were injured when a Nissan Caravan commuter omnibus which had 18 passengers on board was involved in a head-on collision with a Toyota Wish with eight passengers on board along the Harare –Bulawayo Road near Kwekwe.

The bodies of the victims were taken to Kwekwe General Hospital mortuary for postmortem while the injured were admitted at the same hospital.
