Prominent Kwekwe businessman Thubelihle Kheshow who stabbed 6 people to death during a murderous rage has spoken out following his arrest. Kheshow, who is the owner of Kheshow Investments in Redcliff, Kwekwe, blamed evil spirits after he killed 6 people and left 4 other people in hospital fighting for their lives.
According to the 26-year-old businessman, he was possessed by some evil spirits when he went on the murderous rampage.
However, according to the police, the businessman may have been suffering from mental illness when he committed the heinous murders.
National police spokesman Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi told online publication Zimlive, that Kheshow suffered a “mental illness while attending an all-night prayer at a local apostolic sect shrine.”
Assistant Commissioner Nyathi added that the police had recovered the weapons used in the attack.
“Police arrested the suspect and recovered a hoe, axe, kitchen knife and three spears. Investigations are in full swing.”
