A suspected former police officer in Makokoba township in Bulawayo ran amok and axed his friend on the head over an elderly small house.

The grisly incident happened last Tuesday outside Vulindlela Flats.

The suspect identified only as Mpofu was coming from a beer binge at Madlodlo bar with a Nyathi.

According to eyewitnesses, as the pair reached Vulindlela Flats a scuffle ensured over the woman known as maSiziba and a regular at the popular Madlodlo bar.

Mpofu accused Nyathi of messing around with his small house.

"During the scuffle Mpofu drew out a small axe from his pocket and struck Nyathi on the head.

"He quickly hid the axe and fled the scene leaving Nyathi in deep pain and blood gushing out," said Buhle Nyoni.

Other eyewitnesses said Mpofu was heard saying Nyathi is too stubborn and should stay clear of his lover.
