National liberation war heroes Cdes Josiah and Ruth Chinamano’s son was yesterday found dead in a trench near his home in Old Highfield, Harare.
Mr Chinhamo Chinamano (60) is believed have fallen into the trench on his way home from a local beer hall during the late hours of the day.
According to his wife, Mrs Concilia Chinamano, he left home around 3pm but did not say where he was going.
“I started panicking around midnight and went out looking for him, but since it was dark, the search did not help much,” she narrated. “Around 5am I went to Mbizi Police Station but I was told it was too early to make a missing person report.
On my way back home by a family friend, that is when I was told that he had been found in a trench. I rushed to where he was and his head was in water.”
His body was taken to Harare Central Hospital for post-mortem.
Senior Assistant Commisioner Charity Charamba said, “I can confirmed the he was found dead in a drain this morning. He was last seen yesterday around 20:00 hours. Police investigations are still underway.”
