90-Year-Old Man Dies Of Shock As Store Runs Out Of His Favourite Beer

Members of Hungwe Village in Ndolwane area were left in shock after 90-year-old Ntumbu Ndlovu collapsed and died at a shopping center in Plumtree when he found out that a shop had run out of his favorite beer.

Sources said Ndlovu had left home at around 5pm, and gone to his niece’s homestead who stays in the same village to collect his groceries which he had left there.

A family member, Ethel Tshuma said the deceased was a habitual drinker and loved Ingwebu opaque beer and had no health problems except for the fact that he was advanced in age.

    “Ndlovu got to Cingo Business Center on his way to Sithandekile Tshuma’s homestead, his niece. He passed by the shops to buy beer but discovered that the shop keeper did not have it in stock. He left the shop in a rush but collapsed and died about 50 meters from the entrance,” said Tshuma.

    “He was advanced in age but he was still physically fit and could do a number of household manly duties without much difficulty. He loved to walk to the shops, buy a beer and walk back home and drink it under a shade she said.

The shopkeeper did not notice the old man laying face down until a local villager passed by.
