A TOP Kwekwe DJ allegedly hanged himself from a tree on Sunday following a misunderstanding with his mother.
Gilbert Clever Mutumbudze (28), popularly known as DJ Killer at Club Mojo where he practised his craft, is alleged to have threatened to commit suicide after his mother censured him for wayward behaviour.
Midlands police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko said: “I can confirm that we are investigating a suicide case that occurred on Sunday in Mbizo where Mutumbudze hanged himself after having a misunderstanding with his mother.”
Sources close to the case said the DJ had a misunderstanding with his mother who was trying to restrain him from consuming too much alcohol and sleeping out.
“The deceased was a drunkard who at times spent the whole week sleeping in a beerhall. On Sunday his mother tried to counsel him,” said the source.
“He then threatened to commit suicide and hours later he was found hanging from a tree branch by a passerby,” said the source.
