Ex-footballer kills vendor over Peanut Butter



Peanut Butter

Ex-footballer kills vendor over Peanut Butter. iHarare has established through the state media that Mpofu stormed the now deceased, Blessed Sibanda’s shop where he stole peanut butter. After catching the hoodlum red-handed in the act, Sibanda tried to stop him from escaping but she was overpowered.

In a very distressing development, a Bulawayo woman lost her life after she tried to foil a robbery at her shop. The suspect who is still on the run has been identified as Leniency Mpofu, a former professional footballer. Mpofu’s former club (name not provided) has since been relegated from the Premier Soccer League.

During his escape, Mpofu is alleged to have struck Sibanda hard on the chest with his elbow. Unfortunately, Sibanda collapsed to the floor and was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics were summoned. The incident occurred at Golden Brooke market place at the corner of 5th Avenue and Fife Street.

Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident and revealed that Sibanda had not yet been arrested.

‘We are investigating a case where a woman who operates a shop at the market place died after being hit by a thief who had stolen peanut butter from her shop. The suspect had stolen 12x375mls bottles of peanut from her shop. The victim tried to apprehend the suspect but he hit her with an elbow on the chest and she collapsed and was pronounced dead by an ambulance crew that attended the scene,’ said Insp Ncube.

Bulawayo Vendors and Traders’ Association (BVTA) executive director Mr Michael Ndiweni described Sibanda’s death as devastating.

‘She is our past vice president for the past two years. It’s very sad that she died in such a painful manner. We are devastated following her death. She was a key member of our association as she held the business development portfolio, and a lot of vendors were learning from her. She started as an ordinary vendor but worked to an extent of buying a house and a car. She inspired a lot of vendors to improve themselves.’
