Police are investigating a suspected murder case of a 10-year-old Rusape boy, Devine Sarapo, by his father Daniel (38).
The alleged incident occurred on September 22 in Kanyangira village under Chief Makoni in Rusape.
The father is alleged to have secretly buried the body in a forest with 10 other people.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the matter came to light when the grandmother of the victim visited her other son in Kuwadzana, Harare, who directed her to report the matter to police.
“The grandmother of the victim visited the suspect, Daniel Sarapo, to inform him that his son was no longer going to school as he was now epileptic. The suspect allegedly heated some water and tried to force the victim to bath. He assaulted the victim using a plank and the grandmother, who had gone out, came back later and found Devine Sarapo dead,” Nyathi said.
