A married Zimbabwean police officer, identified as Constable Marapira, has hung himself after being dumped by his girl friend.

Constable Marapira's body was discovered hanging on a tree after he sent a message through Whatsapp to his girlfriend, Clarice Sagiya, directing her where to find his body.

The message read: “Vanhu vasanetseke kutsvaga body yangu. Mukasvika paMvuma vanotena ne Gweru road less than a kilometre pane mota pa side pe road chisango to the left (don’t bother yourselves looking for my body. When you get to Mvuma, turn towards Gweru. Less than a kilometre away, there is a car by the road side to the left,” the victim wrote.

Constable Marapira, reportedly stationed at the Masvingo Rural Police Station, allegedly sponsored the lady at the Morgenster Teacher’s College but after graduating, she told him she was in love with another man and that he wouldn’t be able to afford her upkeep.

The police officer responded by killing himself a few metres off the Mvuma-Gweru Road on Wednesday night.

An officer close to Marpira told Zimbabwe's The Chronicle that: “The misunderstanding followed Clarice’s decision to dump him (Marapira) on claims that she couldn’t be with a police officer anymore as he wouldn’t afford her upkeep.”

Miss Sagiya reportedly took her phone with the messages to a police station, and they headed to the location where the victim had hung himself.

In the meantime, Constable Marapira’s family suspects that the victim was killed.

However, the police say they had not yet confirmed the matter.

“we’re still dealing with hearsay and are investigating the true nature of what happened. At the moment I can’t comment,” the police said.
