Passers-by discovered his lifeless body found face down, having been stabbed repeatedly in the back. Notably, Kamwise still had his cell phone and other belongings with him, adding a layer of mystery to the attack.

The Court heard that Kambiyata killed Kamwise, whom he suspected to be dating his girlfriend.

The National Prosecuting Authority revealed:

“It is the State’s case that on May 28, 2024, at around 10 PM, the accused person used his girlfriend’s cellphone to lure the now-deceased Blessing Scott Kamwise to their home on the promise that he would spend the night. Kambiyata harboured suspicions of an affair between Kamwise and his girlfriend.”

Thrilled by the prospect of spending the night with the said girl, Kamwise headed to the house, unbeknownst to him that this was a trap.

The moment the cricketer arrived at the house, Kambiyata attacked him and stabbed him in the neck and back. Kamwise died, resultantly.

The police did a thorough probe of the incident and found the knife that Kambiyata killed Kamwise with at his home.

The Kadoma Magistrate remanded Kambiyata in custody until June 24.
