Initially charged with murder, Mabhena was convicted of a lesser offense after the court determined he acted in self-defense.

Despite pleading not guilty, Mabhena admitted to causing his brother's death.

The altercation between the brothers occurred on July 30, 2020, over a disagreement regarding the choice of condiments for their meal.

The argument escalated when Mabhena requested dried meat from his brother's room, which was not found.

Subsequently, the deceased suggested okra as an alternative, but Mabhena refused and requested maize instead.

Mabhena claimed his brother became aggressive, slapped him, and threatened him with an axe handle.

In response, Mabhena fatally stabbed his brother in the chest and later disposed of the body.

During the trial, Mabhena asserted he acted in self-defense but acknowledged causing his brother's death.

Highlanders won the game 2-1 courtesy of a Lynoth Chikuhwa brace. It was their second victory in pre-season after they won 1-0 against Greenfuel in Gweru the previous weekend.
