MYSTERY shrouds the death of a 32-year-old Chikanga man who went missing shortly after sending his father a text message with directions of where his body would be found.
Oliver Gengezha’s body was found in an advanced state of decomposition 21 days after he had been reported missing by his wife, Marita Jackson.
The body was found in Murahwa Mountain by people looking for firewood who alerted the police.
Gengezha who was stationed in Chipinge is reported to have given his father who stays in Sakubva directions to where his body would be found through a text message before he went missing.
The text message read: “ BP Service Station, right side of the hill.”
Jackson said when Gengezha’s body was found, his phone had more than 50 missed calls from the search party that was looking for him.
“He was a very quiet man who did not have any friends. He did not leave any suicide note and even his bosses at work are equally in shock to what led him to take his own life. It was better if he had told one of his workmates or family members what was troubling him.
“He was laid to rest in Guruve. I was barred from viewing his remains since I am breastfeeding,” said Jackson who has four children with the late Gengezha.
Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luxson Chananda said he was yet to get finer details of the matter.
