13-year-old boy kills his 4-year-old brother for walking slowly


A 13-year-old boy from Chivi, Masvingo appeared in court recently for fatally assaulting his 4-year-old brother whom he accused of walking slowly.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority of Zimbabwe (NPA), on May 5, 2024, the informant left the four-year-old boy in the care of the teenager who is his brother. Said the NPA:

The accused and his 4-year-old brother went fishing in the river. On their way back home, the now-deceased could not keep up with the accused.

This enraged the accused person who lost patience and assaulted him several times by kicking and slapping him all over the body. When he fell, the accused person throttled him and told him to get up and walk home.

He realised that the now deceased was losing consciousness and quickly carried him on his back and rushed home where he tried to feed him with porridge but he could not eat as he was now unconscious.

He laid him on the floor and fled. The death was reported by the informant who found the now deceased’s body when she returned home.

The minor was remanded in the custody of the Department of Social Welfare to the 28th of June 2024.
