MANICALAND: A Chipinge businessman, Fred Mbengami, yesterday allegedly shot and killed himself inside a commuter omnibus parked at Mudzviti bus terminus in Mutare while his son, Noel, was escorting him to resolve an undisclosed domestic dispute in that town.

 His distraught son said: “We were coming from Harare, that is when he shot himself. It was a family issue, which I am not at liberty to disclose as I am yet to inform other family members of the tragedy.”
Although Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa could not be reached for comment, eyewitnesses said the incident happened at around 8am.

Travellers at the busy commuter omnibus rank scurried for cover after Mbengami allegedly stormed out of a public toilet with a cocked pistol and headed to the back seat of the kombi, where he fatally shot himself.
