IN a suspected love triangle which nearly turned fatal, a Bulawayo man was allegedly hacked with a machete twice on the head, and once on the back and knee by a man who was reportedly accusing him of snatching his girlfriend.

According to information gathered by B-Metro on 8 November this year and at around 1am and at Maryland Farm in Umguza, Mkhululi Mpofu who stays in Sauerstown suburb got into a fierce argument with Arther Chikoyi (23) who stays at the farm in question after his girlfriend reportedly jumped into his car.

Although the identity of the woman at the centre of the wrangle was not disclosed, it is reported that Chikoyi who apparently feared that he had been outfoxed took away Mpofu’s car keys and went to his house.

Mpofu, in a bid to recover his car keys, followed Chikoyi to his house. When he arrived, Chikoyi came out armed with a machete which he used to strike him and left him for dead.

He gruesomely struck him twice in the head and once in the back and knee.

After the brutal attack, Mpofu who reportedly bled profusely fell unconscious. He regained his consciousness after some time and reported the matter to Sauerstown police leading to Chikoyi’s arrest.

For the offence Chikoyi appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Shepherd Mjanja facing a charge of attempted murder.

He was, however, not asked to plead and was remanded in custody to November 24.
