Farmer In Court For Shooting Headmaster's Car

Farmer In Court For Shooting Headmaster's Car

A Headlands farmer, Craig Coleman, who was involved in a shooting incident with Vengere High School headmaster, Andrew Mvere, appeared before a Rusape magistrate recently facing malicious damage to property and assault charges.

Coleman of Mezzi Estate allegedly fired shots at Mvere’s vehicle, accusing him and two other people of poaching game on his farm.

Mvere was declared not guilty by the courts and in turn, he reported Coleman to the police for damaging his car after shooting it.

Coleman pleaded not guilty to both charges when he appeared before Rusape magistrate Rutendo Machingura.

Machingura was expected to give a ruling yesterday (Thursday) following an application of discharge at the close of the State case by Coleman’s lawyer, Leonard Chigadza of Chigadza and Associates.

Prosecutor, Tawanda Karikoga, told the court that during the night of 8 September 2020, Mvere was driving a Toyota Hilux pick-up through Mezzi Estate with Million Samahumba and Samuel Chimbo seated in the loading box.

Coleman reportedly came from behind with his vehicle at high speed and shot Mvere’s vehicle with a gun.

Mvere stopped and discovered that his vehicle has been damaged on the back with bullet holes.

Karikoga further alleged that Coleman hit Mvere using the butt of his gun and inflicted injuries on his body. He said:

On the day in question, Coleman ordered Mr Mvere to disembark from his vehicle and he complied.

The accused person hit Mr Mvere once on the head with the butt of his gun. Mr Mvere sustained some injuries as a result of the assault.

He was medically examined at Rusape General Hospital.

Mugabe started tribalism 3 months ago

Tribalism has always been Zanu pf's secret weapon,it has been their useful weapon in their divide and conquer strategy ,they used tribalism in the 1980 until the early 1990s ,during that time the main opposition was Zapu which had a strong ndebele support base but was received and supported all over the country including mashonaland Joshua Nkomo was loved by both ndebeles and shonas and came to be known as father zimbabwe he also had a shona nickname ,Realising that his rule was at risk Mugabe fabricated lies about nkomo keeping weapons and said nkomo was planning a rebellion ,He used that propaganda and sent a north korea trained army to unleash terror in matebelaland claiming 20 000 lives ,Even Putin's invasion of Ukraine is no match for what mugabe did and shonas believed his propaganda and supported him gukurahundi he virtually ended the opposition in zimbabwe and solidified his rule until 1999 when the mdc was born

fast forward to 2022 Zanu pf still realises the power of tribalism that is why they send individuals to pindula to peddle tribalism and distract us from discussing the real issues affecting us.we now spend all our time insulting each other and promoting tribalism instead of dicussing fuel prices,politically violence ,corruption
.lets stop entertaining these state sponsered individuals...Tribalism is zanu pf
if you are tribalist you are a Zanu pf supporter
