A Zimbabwean man is dead after being stabbed with a knife during a fight over a prostitute, bringing the world’s most notorious ‘profession’ under the spotlight.

Police identified the dead man as Vincent Muhoni of Zvishavane.

Witnesses said Muhoni was drinking in a night club when one of his friends came under attack from thugs who accused him of taking ‘their woman’. A brutal fight ensued, causing patrons to flee the club. The fight was taken to a street outside where the thugs started throwing stones randomly, the witnesses said.

Muhoni was stabbed several times in the neck as he tried to rescue his friend who had become trapped. He died on the spot. Police have been criticized for failing to take the man to a nearby hospital, instead choosing to leave him lying on a street in Mandava township for nine hours, in full view of the public after claiming that there was no official transport.

Police arrested one man on Monday.

The area is notorious for fights over women between members of rival ‘korokoza’ gangs of illegal gold hunters. Locals blamed the police for not enforcing laws banning prostitution, which is seen as the root cause for most of the deadly fights among the ‘gwejas’, who have invaded the area as a severe El Nino-induced drought blights the region.
