Chaos At Graveyard As Mourners Demanded Answers  From The Murdered Cousins Family Spokesperson

There was chaos at the burial of the Benza cousins this afternoon with mourners demanding answers from the deceaseds’ family concerning the death of the two children.

It all started when Headman Sachirarwe asked the Benzas to tell the gathering what led them to name Solomon Manyama and Passmore Sambaza as the suspects who murdered Delan and Melissa Benza.

The Manica Post reports that a gathering hackled the family spokesperson, Johannes Benza, accusing him of not telling the truth.

Relatives also demanded to know the post mortem results which the police said they were not in a position to share with the restive crowd.

The two seven-year-old cousins were killed last week on their way home from school.  Search parties started searching for them but to no avail.

Their bodies with deep neck cuts and throats slit were only discovered the next day in a disused pit latrine toilet about 2km from the school. The bodies were discovered by students from Mbaza High School who had joined the search.

iHarare had reported that the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has confirmed the arrest of two suspects in connection with the horrific murder of two Grade 1 pupils which occurred in Nyanga last week.

48-year-old Solomon Munyama and Passmore Sambaza (age not given) were arrested for the murder of Dilan and Melissa Benza of Sambaza Village, in Nyanga. The two children were both aged 7.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi revealed that the police had recovered a blood-stained hoe from the home of one of the suspects.
