The offence claimed to have been committed when an argument broke out during that Newcastle 4 PSG 1 game.

Newsday report – 10 October 2023:

‘A 24-year-old Harare man who allegedly killed his brother-in-law following an argument over a soccer match between Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Newcastle on Saturday appeared before magistrate Ruth Moyo facing murder charges.

Tadiwanashe Makumbe was ordered to apply for bail at the High Court due to the gravity of the offence. According to court papers, on October 4, at around 11:30pm, Makumbe was watching a UEFA football match between PSG and Newcastle United with his sister’s husband Julius Nenzou.

It is alleged that a misunderstanding ensued during the match, resulting in the accused hitting Nenzou several times on the head with an unknown object.

The State alleged that Makumbe’s sister tried to rescue her husband after she heard him screaming from the lounge, but the accused attempted to turn on her instead.

Nenzou fell down unconscious and was pronounced dead upon admission to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.’
