A Kwekwe man believed to be a gold panner, was gruesomely butchered by an unknown assailant after the two parties failed to reach common ground over who would sleep with a lady of the night first.

The man whose name could not be ascertained was allegedly hacked with a machete thrice and died on his way to Kwekwe General Hospital.

The assailant is on the run.

Midlands police spokepserson could not confirm the incident saying he was in Harare and was yet to be briefed on the case.

However, sources close to the happenings have it that the two were drinking at Shumba Hotel.

The two, sources say, they decided to liven up their drinking by seeking the services of a thigh vendor for pleasure.

a�?The two had an argument as to who was going to have sex with her first, that is when the misunderstandingA� began,a�? said a source.

The killer, whose name could also not be ascertained, then forked out $10 for a short time with the harlot raising the stakes after outbidding the now deceased who had paid $5 for the womana��s services.

A brawl ensued as the duo argued over who was to enjoy the forbidden fruit first and as the blows grew intense the now late man took to his heels towards Much Better Bar and Restaurant with his killer in hot pusuit.

He was then hacked twice by a machete on the neck and fell unconscious.

The killer then disappeared into thin air and police have since launched a manhunt.

The disturbing issue comes amid growing fears that gold panners have since turned the city into a war zone with machetes and knives taking centre stage.
