A public transport operator who was found dead along Jeff Road near the Golden Peacock Villa Hotel was not murdered but died of heart failure.
Mutare Police this week cleared the air on the mysterious death of the Chikanga-based kombi operator, Artwell Tenderere (36).
“He died on June 5, 2018 at around 6.30am. He arrived at Golden Peacock Villa Hotel at around 5.30am, parked his car and left for jogging,” he said.
“Tenderere later collapsed and died while he was jogging. His brother, Tsika Tenderere of No.4140 Chikanga Phase 2 said Artwell had been struggling with hypertension and heart problems for a long time. After he collapsed, a passerby notified his employee Kelvin Kupangwa (38) of 48 Chitungo, Sakubva who reported the matter to the police,” he said.
Insp Kakohwa said the late Artwell’s body was taken to hospital for a post mortem.
