He was also a holder of a Master of Laws in Corporate Law and Masters in Business Administration.

He joined the Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs as a Magistrate in 2005. He rose through the ranks in the Magistracy and became the Deputy Chief Magistrate in 2018.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Mrs Ansicaria Makomo and children. May the Lord comfort them during this difficult time.

PINDULA shud have given us a brief acount of how this chap operated. tinoda kuona kuti airwira kodzero nerusununguko rwevanhu here kana kuti aiva mutongi asina kururama uye achitsigira bato rinodzvinyirira rava mnangagwa. we have many people in this country who work to make sure that the suffering of the people is prolonged by supressing the people's voice in many ways. this group involves the likes of luke malaba, chigumba weku zec, chris and monica mutsvangwa, owen ncube, jacob mudenda, ziyambi ziyambi, ruben barwe...etc etc. such people do not deserve the people's sympathy. so tinoda kutanga taziva kuti judge uyu ange akamira sei, ndedzipi nyaya dzaakambotonga uye mitongo yake yange yakamira sei. aiva kudivi ripi? revanhu here kana kuti re zanu?

Pakaipa. Being a high judge and now he is facing the Highest of all judges who judges with righteousness. If he judged well he will also be judged well and if he didn't judge well, they will judge him accordingly.
