Murder suspect Tafadzwa Shamba demonstrates how he killed seven-year-old Tapiwa Makore during an inspection in loco at Makore Village under Chief Mangwende in Murehwa.

A horrific crime that sh0cked the nation is finally coming to a close as the High Court prepares to sentence the man responsible for the brutal murder of seven-year-old Tapiwa Makore three years ago.

Tafadzwa Shamba was found guilty of murder last month, with Tapiwa’s uncle, Tapiwa Makore Senior, also facing sentencing for his role as an accomplice. The young boy’s body was found dismembered, sparking widespread outrage.

Shamba confessed to the murder, revealing that he and Makore Senior had intended to sell the boy’s body parts to a witchdoctor for a mere $1,500. The court relied on Shamba’s confession and other evidence to convict him, while Makore Senior was found guilty of contributing to the murder by providing his house as the site for the crime.

The court was satisfied that both men were involved in the heinous act, leaving their “bold and luminous footprints” at the scene. The sentencing is set to occur today, bringing some semblance of closure to the tragedy that rocked the nation.
