POLICE yesterday arrested another suspect for allegedly killing a seven-year-old boy Tapiwa Makore from Murewa.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the uncle to the deceased is alleged to have worked with one Tafadzwa Shamba in killing the seven-year-old-boy.

Shamba has since been arrested.

“Police have arrested the deceased’s uncle in connection with the murder incident. He was arrested yesterday. Allegations are that the uncle assisted Tafadzwa Shamba in this case and he is the one who took the head to a witch doctor.

“Police are now looking for the witch doctor,” he said.

Tapiwa went missing on September 17 after he was allegedly kidnapped while looking after his parents’ garden.

His body was found the following morning, with some parts, including the head missing.

    They should arrest the N”ngas as well and let them rot in jail because they are the trouble causers, they tell lies. People should work hard in order to put food on the table, why Africans who believe it that sh..t. In European countries where they are rich but never killed anyone. The Government should put a stop by arresting them.

    Very important to go to the root of this satanic practice. The “witch doctor”, the one paying this worse than satan witch and everyone else involved really need to understand, even while in hell, that it’s extremely foolish to terminate a life for stupid, barbaric beliefs of this nature. The law must take its course to the very end.
