Chipinge Businessman Who Assaulted A Soldier Granted $100 000 Bail

Chipinge businessman Edmore Mwoyongewenyu (43), who was arrested on Thursday last week for attempted murder has been granted bail.

Doda, as he is popularly known, allegedly teamed up with Moses Mazuku, Vincent Mapuranga and seven others who are still at large, to assault a soldier, Shepherd Makwenjere.

Doda accused Makwenjere of dating Naume Makuyana (20), who is one of his eight wives.

He was granted $50 000 bail for attempted murder and $50 000 for firing a firearm by Chipinge Magistrate Frenklin Mukwananzi.

Doda is accused of having produced his loaded pistol and fired twice in the air while assaulting Makwenjere.

His co-accused, Mapuranga and Mazuku were also granted $50 000 bail each.

As part of the bail conditions, the magistrate ordered Doda to continue residing at his given address and not to interfere with state witnesses until the matter is finalised.

He also ordered Doda to report to Chipinge Urban police station twice a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 6 am and 6 pm and to surrender his passport to the clerk of court.

The trio will be back in court on 20 June for routine remand.

Doda, Mapuranga and Mazuku are being represented by Langton Mhungu of Mhungu and Associates.
