In a tragic incident, a popular city bouncer’s affair took a turn for the worst after he was allegedly fatally stabbed by his lover, after an altercation over US$6 000.
According to the local tabloid, H-Metro, the dreadlocked bouncer Knowledge Fata, popularly known as Knox, who worked as a security person in the CBD, had deserted his wife and three children and moved in with his mistress Venia Yolanda Chokore in Glen Norah, prior to the incident.
Sources that spoke to the publication said that the tragic incident occurred on Saturday evening when the two got into a scuffle over US$6 000. Chokore is reported to have been demanding the money from the deceased after she had intercepted messages from his mobile phone.
During the heated brawl, Chokore is reported to have taken a knife and stabbed Fata on the chest leading to his untimely death.
”She stabbed him with a knife so deep that she could not remove it from his chest as the handle came off, leaving the steel in his chest. Fata had to seek help next door.
“Fata called for help until he broke down the door with his weight.
”The neighbours then came out after they heard the noise and assisted Chokore in carrying Fata into her car to take him to the hospital but he died before they could get help,” said the source.
The neighbour whom the duo sought help from, confirmed the incident.
”I have come to fix the broken glass and I am not aware of what they were fighting over.
”I was away in Masvingo when it happened but the incident is quite sad,” said Chiketa.
Another neighbour who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that the landlady where Fata and Chokore stayed witnessed many of the fights.
”The woman was not friendly, even if you greeted her she would not greet back. At one point in time, the woman pulled the machete on him,” she said.
Close friends to Fata told the publication that the two were always fighting over various issues.
”Her ex-husband also had a stab wound following an assault with Chokore, so you see, this woman has a bad history and that what has landed her in this mess,” they said.
Another source claimed that Chokore with her lawyer said that Fata beat her up until she fainted and upon regaining consciousness, she found her lover dead with a knife on his chest.
