A top Bulawayo City Council official in the Engineering department, assistant director of Engineering Services, Mbuthi Gugu Mkhwananzi, died on Saturday at Mater Dei Hospital after he was allegedly assaulted by a rival suitor after the two clashed at a girlfriend's house in the city.

Mkhwananzi succumbed to injuries he allegedly sustained after the brutal attack on Tuesday morning, Sunday News reported.
