Tragedy struck on Tuesday when a 52-year-old man was found hanging in a toilet in Glen Norah Extension. Stanley Chakanetsa, who had been staying alone in a cabin to safeguard building materials for his house, was discovered by his daughter after he had called her promising to reveal what had been troubling him.
According to a family member identified only as Muganduri, Stanley had been having some trouble with his wife, Patience Gapa, who was based at Inkomo Barracks where she worked as a tailor. Muganduri said that Stanley and Patience had been fighting for some time, and that they suspected the couple had been having a nasty fight over some undisclosed issues.
