ZRP inspector said on Wednesday, “Police in Kadoma is appealing for information which may assist in the investigation of a case of murder in which Blessing Kamwise aged 24, was found dead with two deep wounds on the neck on May 29, 2024 along Waterworks Road, near Blue Rangers, Kadoma.”

Marking his comment over tragic death of Kamwise, his friend Admire Zhangu said that he found the lifeless body of Kamwise and witnessed the deep wounds on his neck and two stab wounds on his back.

Zhangu added to his statement and said, “It’s really sad. He was just a young fellow cricketer who liked to play sports, especially cricket and what is worrying is that he still had his phone and earphones with him, raising suspicion that this could be a targeted murder, maybe over a woman.”

Scott Blessing Kamwise, was a Kadoma Cricket Club Player who was seen by many locals as full of potential in the elite sport.

Considerably, a police report was made at ZRP Kadoma Central and the body was conveyed to Kadoma General Hospital mortuary for a post-mortem. Inspector Kohwera has appealed that anyone with the information related to the case should contact any nearest police station.

As per the sources, it found that Kadoma is a gold mining town in Mashonaland West, which is synonymous with vengeance and mine murders. Some times ago, a 28-year-old Ian Mharadze was liked at a local night club in the town after he had gone to avenge the beating of a friend on the previous day.
