A Domboshava man has appeared in court facing two counts of murder after he allegedly stabbed two men to death with a broken bottle.
The man, Terrence Janguma (29) of Mungate Village, reportedly stabbed the pair after one of the pair had allegedly fondled his wife’s breast while dancing at a bottle store at Zimbiru Business Centre in the same area.
The deceased pair was identified as Allan Mugova and his friend Tafadzwa Muponda.
The accused was taken to the Harare Magistrates Court last week and was not asked to plead to the charges when he appeared before magistrate Mrs Yeukai Dzuda.
He was remanded in custody to July 18 and advised to approach the High Court for bail application.
The State’s case
Prosecutor Mr Anesu Chirenje alleged that on June 27 at around 2.30 am, Janguma was drinking beer at Garanehama Bottle Store in the company of his wife, Memory Zacharia, and sister-in-law Sibongile Zacharia.
It is said that the late Mugova, who was in the company of his friend Muponda, approached Memory who was dancing and fondled her breast.
This infuriated Janguma, who confronted Mugova, ordering him to stop fondling his wife.
A dispute occurred between Janguma and Mugova and the accused allegedly broke an empty beer bottle, and stabbed Mugova once in the chest before turning on Muponda, whom he stabbed in the stomach.
Mugova and Muponda are said to have fled in different directions but died a few metres from the bottle store as a result of the injuries.
Janguma, his wife and sister-in-law, are said to have disappeared from the scene after the attack.
