THE Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has expressed concern over rising murder cases, some of which stem from trivial disputes that could be easily resolved without resorting to violence.

This follows the murder of a 23-year-old Bulawayo man who was struck twice on the forehead and chest with a pick by a yet-to-be-identified suspect.

"In another case, a Tengwe man (39) was fatally assaulted after he was caught with the suspect's wife at Elephant Rest Business Centre booking rooms," reads a police statement.

"In a related case which occurred in Maphisa on June 27 at around 2am, two complainants were attacked by six unknown male suspects while coming from a beer binge at Mbeba Business Centre.

"One of the complainants managed to escape while the other was later found dead with a swollen face."
