Two suspected robbers appeared in court last week for fatally stoning a man before stealing his valuables and $120 in cash. Tatenda Gwanda (22) and Saymore Dzimaita (22) were charged with murder when they appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Elijah Makomo.
Mr Makomo remanded the two in custody to January 29 for their trial. The prosecutor Mrs Idah Maromo alleged that on November 8 2014 along Hurst Road, Waterfalls in Harare, Gwanda and Dzamaita waylaid Mr Caleb Muzunze as he was coming from work.
The court heard that the two suddenly started throwing stones at Mr Muzunze, hitting him on the head, until he fell to the ground.
When Mr Muzunze fell down, it is alleged that Gwanda and Dzamaita searched him and stole a black grey satchel containing groceries, a Nokia Asha cellphone and a wallet containing $120.
Mr Muzunze was rushed to hospital by people who found him in agony but he died on November 12 2014. The two were arrested on November 17.
