According to My Zimbabwe, an online news platform in that country, a man identified as Abshalom Chitsiku, was burnt to death over a missing $2, after an angry man, Rodrick Pfungwa Murorwa, set a wooden cabin on fire resulting during a fight over the money.

According to the report, Pfungwa kicked a burning paraffin-fuelled stove in his wooden cabin while his eight friends were seated on the bed following a misunderstanding of the missing $2 note.

The stove exploded and torched the cabin, resulting in the occupants being trapped in the raging flames. Six people, including Murorwa, escaped with minor burns and two others were seriously burnt.

But Chitsiku was not that lucky as he died while receiving treatment at a hospital after sustaining serious injuries all over his body, while another unidentified victim is battling for his life at the provincial referral centre.

The suspect has since been arraigned before Mutare senior magistrate facing murder and attempted murder charges.
