Convict drank rat poison after being dumped by gi

Police have confirmed that a convicted murderer commited suicide by drinking poison after his girlfriend dumped him.

Blessing Chimbirai as he was known, had already served 6 months of his 25 year sentence. He was convicted for killing a police officer, before he got released again under Presidential Amnesty, on medical grounds. He had stabbed a policeman after he refused arrest back in Octpober 2014.

Chimbirai allegedly drank rat poison as his girlfriend and another lady watched. He was quickly rushed to Nyika Clinic before being transferred to Silveira Mission Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

"I can confirm receiving a report of sudden death by poisoning involving a man from Bikita. Chimbirai was ditched by his girlfriend and this probably did not go down well with him hence he committed suicide," said Acting Masvingo Police Spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dehwa.
