A 29-year-old man's life is hanging by the thread after he sustained cuts on his private parts and head when he was attacked by three men who accused him of impregnating their sister.
It is reported that Zamani Ndebele of Nkayeni village was on his way to Zibunkululu Secondary School to attend schools competitions when he met the three men who blocked his way.
Actorboy Mpofu (19), Mlungisi Khanye (22) and another boy aged 17 started accusing Ndebele of impregnating their sister and before he could explain himself, they started meting instant justice on him. They assaulted the helpless Ndebele with fists until he fell down.
Actorboy is said to have produced a knife which he used to stab the man on the head and right thigh before slicing his 'sausage and two eggs'.
Matabeleland North police spokesperson Inspector Billie Dube confirmed the incident.
"We are investigating a case where three men stabbed their fellow villager accusing him of impregnating their relative," he said.
Insp Dube revealed that Ndebele was saved by his cousin, Future Sibanda, who found the three men still in the middle of cutting off their victim's private parts.
"Sibanda wrestled the three men and two of them managed to escape leaving Mlungisi Khanye behind. He then overpowered him and effected citizen's arrested him before handing him over to Tsholotsho police," said Insp Dube.
Police attended the scene and the other two accused are still at large.
"We have launched a manhunt for Actorboy Mpofu and the juvenile. Preliminary investigations are underway," he added.
Ndebele is admitted at Tsholotsho hospital where he is recovering. A source revealed that Ndebele's 'sperm sprinkler' is also recovering well after it was almost totally hacked by the three merciless men.
