A man in Mutare was found with a mysterious cobra in an empty beer can at Chidzere bar in Mutare. The One meter Cobra was rapped around Blessing Marota's neck with its head buried in the beer can.
Asked why he was moving with a snake around his neck Blessing could not give a specific answer "Patapedza game manje takutomwa doro because ndaendawo ndine 3 maZed muhomwe, tapedza tave kutorowa maZed ndipo pandaonawo nyoka iyi yakutobuda mumahuswa irikutotadza kufamba iri pakati pemharadzano ndobva ndatomboisunga netambo kwakutanga kuikweya zvikanzi nemadhara epa sports club mupfana ita yekubata nyoka nemumutsipa nekuti ukaikweya (kudhonza) inozobudisa musoro ikaku ataka (attack) ino kwakutobata ndikati hapana zvandinokwanisa kuita-Zvivindi zveZed." Says Blessing
It is suspected that Blessing was drinking beer with his friends and every time when the beer was finished it is alleged that he would knock the empty beer can containing the snake and in return the snake would vomit some cash. It is alleged that when Blessing was taken to Mutare Central position one local businessman attempted to run away with Blessing and the snake but was intercepted by the crowd and many questions are being asked why the local businessman attempted to run away with the mysterious snake.
After failing to remove the snake's head from the beer can, Blessing is reported to have killed the snake but surprisingly one local businessman in Mutare collapsed and died the very time the snake was killed.
