The four Gokwe sisters who were beheaded and burnt in a petrol bombed hut by unknown assailants were buried yesterday in a touching ceremony.

The Dlomo girls, who have been identified as Peculiar (4), Princess (13), Preference (15) and Progress (19) were laid to rest in Chirima Village yesterday morning.

 The unknown assailants, according to the family members, went away with the heads of their four victims. The family had to bury headless bodies.

Efforts to contact the immediate family were fruitless as they were not reachable on their mobile phones.

The siblings were killed last Friday at Chirima Village under Chief Mukoka area in Gokwe South.

The eldest, Privilege in her 20s and married, escaped.

The deceased were laid to rest side by side at a family cemetery.

The family has a prime suspect who recently had a dispute with the family and were assisting police with investigations. state media
