Police officers in Zimbabwe are investigating the murder of a 31-year-old football fan in Zimbabwe who was killed with a machete after an argument over Manchester United’s 4-0 loss to Brentford.
Vukile Nkomo, 31, was reportedly murdered after watching the football game in Fingo Bottle Store with his brother in the rural village of Mbembesi on Saturday night.
Manchester United was four goals down by half-time, setting a sour tone.
After the match was over, the brother and a man named Sthembelani Tshuma reportedly got into an argument over the game.
Nkomo’s killer left the bottle store in a fury, heading home directly to collect his machete on August 13.
He returned and struck Nkomo with the blade later that evening, according to Sunday News.
His brother escaped to a nearby shopping mall to try and find police officers to save Nkomo.
But when they returned, he was lying dead in a pool of blood.
Tshuma, who is facing charges for the murder, is on the run and wanted by police for questioning.
