Three suspects have been arrested in Mvurwi for allegedly assaulting a man to death over a prostitute.

The trio Oliver Nyabeza (33), Osca Manyika (21) and Jane Jijima(61) is currently assisting police with investigations over Nigel (Nyonyinyo) Barara's (21) case.

Barara was reportedly assaulted on 18 September 2017 after he was caught at ward1 Suoguru Township Mvurwi, looking for his permanent sex worker who was said to have been hired by Nyabeza.

Currently Barara is battling for life at Parirenyatwa and the trio is being charged with attempted murder, the case is set to be heard at Bindura magistrate court (tomorrow) on Wednesday.

Sources at Parirenyatwa said Barara gained his consciousness today but is yet to speak hence his statement is yet to be recorded.

"The man gained his consciousness today but he is not yet able to speak, no statement has been recorded from him so far," said the source.

Surprisingly, Barara was carried to hospital by well-wishers who could not disclose much about the assault there by making the whole case puzzling.
