Another CCC member believed to be among those who participated in the violence that rocked Nyatsime area under the guise of revenging the death of Moreblessing Ali, has appeared at the Harare Magistrates Court on a charge of public violence.

Ephrage Gwavava, of Unit M, Chitungwiza, was not asked to plead to the charges when he appeared in court on Wednesday.

He is alleged to have been in the group of Precious Jeche, Misheck Guzha, Odias Makoma, Chauya Shopa, Zex Makoni, Roan Tsoka, Zephania Chinembiri, Shepherd Bulakasi, Tatenda Pindahama, Enock Tsoka, Emmanuel Muradzikwa, Robert Madzokere and Clever Sibanda, who have been all arrested in connection with the violence that occurred on June 14 this year and have already appeared in court on public violence charges. 

The suspects are alleged to be behind the burning of the house of the late Zanu PF chairperson for Nyatsime Cde George Murambatsvina. 

They also allegedly stoned houses and broke window panes before going to Chibhanguza Shopping Centre, where they torched a gazebo, damaged windows of 13 shops, four beer halls and looted groceries and electrical gadgets. 

It is alleged that they also assaulted people and damaged motor vehicles. 

Property worth $5 800 000 was destroyed in the process, according to the State. 

The violence was triggered by social media and other false claims that Ms Ali had been kidnapped in a political action, rather than grabbed and murdered on the night of her disappearance by a former boyfriend who has since been arrested and has reportedly confessed.
