Sources close to the investigation revealed that the incident took place on 3 May around 11am.
“Mabvure visited the accused person at his place of residence and got into the spare bedroom, while they were talking, he asked for the now deceased’s cell phone and was given. Lunga opened the phone and discovered some nude pictures of Mabvure and messages with a suspected boyfriend and an alteration arose between the two.
