A CHIPINGE man last week took his own life after accusing his brother and friend of gossiping about him.
Tichaona Mandhlazi (28) struck his brother on the forehead with a log before he took a pesticide and later hanged himself.
"On January 23, Mandhlazi followed his young brother, Tapera (20) to a stream where he had gone to take a bath. Mandhlazi accused him and his friend, Lazarus Sithole (19) of gossiping about him. A misunderstanding arose which resulted in Mandhlazi picking up a log and striking Tapera on the forehead once. He rushed home and took a bottle of a pesticide and drank it.
