Businesswoman Olinda Chapel has given ZW$270 000 for DNA tests to Livingstone Sunhwa’s mother Selina Tadya.
The Sunhwa family had been asked to finance the tests which will determine if the remains are their son’s.
Chapel sent US$350 to Selina and posted the confirmation on her Facebook page.
“Please let them know I have sent money for the DNA tests,” said Chapel.
This comes after remains of a body including items of clothing were found scattered in a bushy area, about a kilometer from the Mutasa school. They are believed to have belonged to Livingstone.
Livingstone is said to have been arrested at St. Matthias Tsonzo high school after being accused of breaking into the institution’s tuck shop. He was never seen alive since 06 December 2021.
