Six men have appeared in court on charges of murder after they allegedly assaulted a suspected thief to death.
The court heard that the accused caught the deceased stealing from their colleague’s car in Epworth, Harare and assaulted him.
After realising that the now deceased was badly injured, Elfas and Ernest Mapwanya, Tafadzwa Mafoshoro, Shamiso Madhishi, Trevor Matambudziko and Philani Nkala, allegedly dumped him close to a clinic.
The court heard that the now deceased was taken home by a “Good Samaritan” where he was later found dead.
The six were remanded in custody, ZBC News reported.
In a different case, a 23-year-old man appeared before the courts on charges of theft of a firearm after stealing his uncle’s gun.
Lewis Hlahla was remanded in custody when he appeared in court this Monday.
It is alleged that the accused visited his 78-year-old uncle who stays alone and stole the gun from the gun cabinet.
He was arrested after his uncle realised the gun was missing after the accused had left the house.
