Kuda Mahachi Acquitted Of Attempted Murder Charges

Kuda Mahachi Acquitted Of Attempted Murder Charges

Former Supersport United winger Kudakwashe Mahachi was this Friday acquitted of two separate counts of attempted murder by Bulawayo regional magistrate Mark Dzira, reported The Sunday News.

Mahachi was facing two counts of attempting to kill his four-year-old son Diego.

Allegations against Mahachi were that on a date unknown to the prosecutor but between 25 February and 14 April 2022, Mahachi assaulted his son with an iron bar on the head and mouth and also poured hot water all over his body.

The footballer was also accused of assaulting his son with a charger cable all over the body.

In his ruling, Magistrate Dzira said the complainant gave contradictory statements during cross-examination.

He also said other witnesses who testified also gave inconsistent testimonies and it was difficult to ascertain who was lying and who was telling the truth.

Dzira said medical experts could not ascertain the cause of the injuries hence the dismissal of the case and acquittal of Mahachi.

The criminal law demands that the evidence has to irrefutable and moreover a minor is not cross examined but their are victim friendly courts whereby child psychologyists are involved

The state has to prove its case beyond any reasonable DOUBT. However, failure to prove beyond a reasonable doubt does not mean the accused person did not commit the offence. It simply means he got the benefit of the doubt.

A medical officer can document the nature of the injuries on the medical affidavits. But he may not conclusively ascertain the exact cause of the injuries because he was not there when the injuries were inflicted. This trial took too long and children have short memories unlike adults. The courts are also hostile & adversarial to the extent that laymen are often confused by the methods of questioning. Not to mention kickbacks & corruption.

Kuda Mahachi hired lawyers from Tanaka Law Chambers. The lawyer's might have been good at confusing the witnesses, resulting in conflicting evidence. Investigating officers also write bad English to the extant that lawyers can challenge the meaning or meaninglessness of the Warned & Cautioned Statement.

However, in the court of public opinion Kuda is guilty. He will have to live forever in the prison of his own conscience, fully knowing that he cannot escape from himself & what he did to that innocent little boy...

You have to prove your case beyond any reasonable doubt,, a guilty psn can be acquitted if the state cannot put a solid case before the courts... backed with evidence which cannot be rebutted

Those lashing out at the Magistrate do you have a shred of evidence to prove his guilt?

@Minnie how does finding out the child is not his prove that he scalded the child with hot water?

Mdara Odza 2 months ago

How does sending his child with Malayitsha prove he committed the crime? Inconsistent substantial evidence will not return a guilty verdict.
