Detectives Ask Magistrate For More Time With Muvevi

Detectives Ask Magistrate For More Time With Muvevi

Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officers handling the matter in which former policeman and gold dealer Jaison Muvevi (43) is facing several charges including murder have requested for more time to conduct further investigations, reported The Herald.

The detectives on Wednesday asked the court for three more days with Muvevi to allow them time to further manage cases.

The Investigating Officer in the matter, detective Pikisai Chikwazo, said they want more time to travel to Hwedza (Wedza) for indications and to interview him.

Muvevi (39) appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi on Wednesday, 17 January.

He was complaining of experiencing difficulties in sleeping because of two pairs of handcuffs he had.

However, Muvevi’s lawyer Samson Dzingira opposed the application arguing that the police can always interview him while in the hands of prison officers.

Dzingira asked detectives to take Muvevi back to court tomorrow since the expected 48 hours in police custody have not lapsed.

Magistrate Mangosi was on Wednesday expected to make a ruling on the application for further detention.

Parson Dziva appeared for the State.

Muvevi allegedly shot and killed Crispen Mubvana Kanerusine (62), a self-styled prophet who was operating from a Johanne Masowe shrine at Negombwe Village in Wedza.

He shot the elderly man at point-blank range right in front of his congregants after he allegedly gave him a prophecy he did not like.

Muvevi’s second victim was Wedza officer in charge Inspector Maxwell Hove (43) who was unarmed and sitting in the front passenger side of a police truck.

He shot the police officer three times, killing him instantly, before targetting Detective Constable Tendai Mugova who was armed with a CZ pistol and had taken cover under the police truck.

Police said Mugova was shot three times – on the left hip, stomach and right shoulder, but survived the shooting.

Muvevi then disarmed the police officers, took their guns and jumped into his vehicle and sped off towards Goto.

Muvevi’s third victim was a 20-year-old bartender, Munashe Mujanhi, who he shot and killed for unknown reasons.

The following day, 14 January, Muvevi exchanged fire with detectives who were on his trail in Rusape but escaped unhurt.

He, however, abandoned his Toyota Allion vehicle and an FN rifle he had seized from police officers in Hwedza the previous day.

On Sunday, 15 January, Muvevi was spotted at Mutare Boys’ High School looking for food and was confronted by the caretaker’s son who was “drunk”.

He allegedly fired three shots at the man but he missed him. Muvevi then melted into a nearby forest.

While in Mutare, Muvevi used his EcoCash wallet to buy the worksuit he was wearing when he was apprehended.

He then attempted to hire a motorbike to take him to Chimoio town, which is 100 kilometers from Mutare’s Forbes Border Post.

According to the motorcyclist who was filmed narrating the encounter, Muvevi asked to be transported to Chimoio for US$200, but when the motorcyclist refused, he pulled out a revolver and threatened to shoot him.

Muvevi was finally arrested as he attempted to board a kombi headed toward Chimoio.
