The scarcity of cooking oil in the couthry has landed a Chiweshe man in hot soup after he reportedly axed another man who was holding a 2 litre bottle of cooking oil from Mbizi shop in Chiweshe after the commodity run out whilst he was still in the queue.

Enock Dhombo (40) was arrested after he allegedly attempted to murder Makesure Soda (41) of Zambara village under Chief Makope on Wednesday at Gunguwe business Centre in Chiweshe after he saw him holding the much needed cooking oil.

Mashonaland Central acting police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Petros Masikati confirmed the case.

"We are investigating a suspected murder case which occurred at Gunguwe Business Centre in Chiweshe , Dhombo is assisting police with investigations after he allegedly axed once in the head over a 2 litre cooking oil bottle dispute," Masikati said.

It is further alleged that Soda is battling for life at Howard Hospital in Chiweshe where he was referred from a local clinic.

Masikati urged people to respect human life and shun violence since failure to abide to the law results in them being arrested.

"As the police we continue to urge people to respect human life by avoiding violence as that will lead to unnecessary loss of life in most cases above all people must abide to Zimbabwean laws as failure to do so will eventually lead them to be incarcerated."
