At half-time, the Red Devils were down 4-0, which could have made the club supporters furious.

Moments after the game, a man named Sthembelani Tshuma reportedly got into an argument with Nkomo’s killer.

And in a swift, the culprit left the bottle store and headed home to take his machete before returning to strike Nkomo with the blade later that evening, according to Sunday News.

His brother escaped to a nearby shopping mall to try and find police officers to save Nkomo.

But when they returned, he was lying dead in a pool of blood. Tshuma, who is facing charges for the murder, is on the run and wanted by police for questioning.
