A lecture with a university in Harare reportedly tried to end his life after downing a concoction of unknown poisonous substance mixed with alcohol. Information reaching iHarare has revealed that Dr Mbereko tried to commit suicide at Chinhoyi Council Head offices on Wednesday where he later collapsed
Although it was unclear why Dr Mbereko tried to end his life, eyewitnesses said that they had heard the doctor mumbling to himself about having problems with his wife. When local publication, H-Metro, arrived at the scene he was found lying helplessly on the ground.
According to eyewitnesses who refused to be named, the doctor was just milling around whilst he had with him a bottle of Two Keys whisky and a plastic bag with unknown poisonous substances.
‘He came from the direction of Edgar’s and he was mumbling to himself saying that nyaya dzevakadzi dzinonetsa. A little while I heard a small noise and realized that he had fallen down and we rushed to the scene to see what had happened.’ Another eye witness chimed in saying,’ He looked dejected and down to earth but and was talking to himself about having marital problems at home.’
A passerby who was coming from shopping expressed shock, saying that he had met the man before the incident and had not imagined that he was contemplating about taking his own life.
‘Haana kutaridzika semunhu ange achida kudambudzira hupenyu hwake munzira.
Pandamuona ndatoti inga havo vane Mari kumukirira mangwanani kutenga doro nyambe he had an ulterior motive of his own. It’s a shame and very saddening indeed,’ said the passerby who spoke on condition of anonymitty.

‘Ini zvokutaura nevatapi venhau handizvikwanise. Hazvizvoita zvakanaka kubasa nokuti imi munenge muchida publicity and boosting your sales,’ she said before hanging her cellphone.
