Bulawayo – A Zimbabwean man was reportedly found in his rented home, with severe injuries and burns all over his body following a "savage" attack linked to a woman.

According to the state-owned Chronicle newspaper, Mthokozisi Sibanda, 32, who had been missing since Friday last week, later died in hospital before he could name his attackers.

Sibanda had been missing from his work of place on Friday and Monday, only to be found by his colleagues lying naked in his room. He had severe injuries and burns all over his body.

He was rushed to the hospital but he died on Tuesday. They claimed that Sibanda appeared "scared and mumbled that some people had attacked him over a girl".

He, however, died before he could disclose who his attackers were.

In 2015 a man in Harare's Sakubva township attacked his rival with a steel rod in a bid to win his girlfriend back.

A Zimbabwe Daily report said that Ngonidzashe Sando, who was 19-years-old at the time, attacked Tinashe Chikata 22, with the steel rod on his elbow before striking him twice on the head.

Sando was convicted on his own guilty plea to charges of assault, the report said.
