Man up for attempted murder
A Harare man appeared in court on Monday for attempted murder after stabbing someone several times with a knife at Jongwe Corner in Hatfield, Harare. Michael Chigari appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Gideon Ruvetsa, facing charges of attempted murder. He was remanded in custody to December 11 and was advised to apply for bail at the High court.
Prosecutor Ms Linda Gadzikwa alleged that last week at Jongwe Corner, Chigari stabbed Tawanda Masuka with a knife four times on the right side of his stomach. It is alleged that he also stabbed him twice on the right arm and once on his left breast.
The court heard that Masuka suffered serious injuries and is admitted at Parirenyatwa Hospital. Chigari was arrested at the scene by police officers who were present. In another murder case before the same magistrate, a Chinhoyi University of Technology student, Enock Chichetu (25), last week appeared in court for allegedly raping and murdering his girlfriend. He was charged with murder. Chichetu was remanded in custody to December 7 and was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
