Claudius Masuka (22) of Mutovisi village under Chief Gutu drowned in a well at his friend’s residence near Mpandawana Growth Point as he went outside to relieve himself.
Assistant Police Spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhehwa confirmed the tragedy.
Masuka and McDonald Chidavaenzi (22) were coming from Emagumeni Night Club at Mpandawana at around 8pm when they decided to go and sleep at their friend’s place Gilson Chiwara (27) in Mpandawana village. Masuka then went out to relieve himself at the back of the house and he accidentally fell into a seven-meter deep well which was close to the house.
The two heard him falling but efforts to rescue him were fruitless.
They called for assistance from neighbours who then used a rope to rescue him. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Gutu Rural Hospital.
