Marabha was later overpowered and handcuffed before being ferried to hospital.

A witness, who recorded the scary incident, said:

“Anyone who was trying to get hold of him was threatened with the knife.

“He was very violent to such an extent that no one could get close to him. So, someone came from behind and held his hands before he was handcuffed.”

Another witness said he was later ferried to Western Centre Clinic where he was put on a drip.

“It looks like he was high on drugs but anga achiti pane chinhu chiri mudumbu make.

“Matumbu ese aya abuda panze but by the time he was taken to the hospital he was still alive.

“He was very popular since he was into mushikashika, he was a dealer.”
