Pius Jamba Mukandi gets 30 years in jail for gruesome murder of CCC activist Moreblessing Ali


Justice Served: Pius Mukandi sentenced to 30 years for gruesome murder of CCC activist

In a harrowing case that shocked the nation, Pius Mukandi, also known as Pius Jamba, was handed a 30-year prison sentence by High Court judge Justice Esther Muremba for the brutal murder of Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) activist, Moreblessing Ali.

The sentence was confirmed by the National Prosecuting Authority of Zimbabwe (NPAZ).

The court proceedings revealed the gruesome details surrounding Ali’s tragic demise, as her dismembered body was discovered in a disused well. Mukandi, who had denied the allegations, claimed that he was being used as a scapegoat to quell political tensions between Zanu PF and CCC supporters in the Nyatsime area.

Justice Muremba, however, emphasized the overwhelming evidence against Mukandi, stating that he was the only person known to have had an altercation with Ali prior to her disappearance. The judge highlighted that Mukandi’s warned and cautioned statement aligned with the evidence found at the crime scene, solidifying his culpability in Ali’s murder. Justice Muremba further clarified that the motive behind the heinous act was not politically driven.

Ali’s decomposing remains were discovered in sacks, having been callously dismembered before being discarded in the well. The discovery took place more than two weeks after her disappearance, casting a dark shadow over the community.

The sentencing of Mukandi brings some measure of closure to the grieving family and friends of Moreblessing Ali, who were left devastated by the brutal loss. The court’s decision reflects the seriousness with which such crimes are treated, sending a strong message that acts of violence will not be tolerated in Zimbabwean society.

As the case concludes, the nation reflects on the importance of justice and the need to protect the rights and safety of all citizens. The memory of Moreblessing Ali will serve as a somber reminder of the devastating consequences of violence and the importance of a fair and thorough legal process.

The sentencing of Pius Mukandi stands as a testament to the dedication and commitment of the judicial system in upholding the principles of justice, ensuring that those responsible for heinous crimes are held accountable.
