Security guard commits suicide

By Tapiwa Machemedze

A Bindura Security Guard, Leopard Kamuzondo employed by Guard Alert, has been found dead in a suspected case of suicide.

When ZBC News arrived at the scene, Kamuzondo’s body was lying face down at the backyard of CBZ Bindura Branch, amid suspicions that he shot himself.

People expressed shock at the incident, with his supposed friend identified as Duncan Gabriel saying he was facing financial challenges.

“He used to sell airtime and Econet lines and these last days he was complaining that things were not going well for him,” said Gabriel.

“We knew this man and he shouldn’t have resorted to taking his own life. He used to confide in us that he was having some financial troubles and we would give each other advice,” said another friend of the late.

Police Spokesperson for Mashonaland Central Inspector Milton Mundembe said investigations are underway and an official statement will be issued in due course.
