In a tragic turn of events, a 34-year-old man from Raffingora, Takeson Nyanzama, has been remanded in custody on murder charges by the Chinhoyi Magistrates Court.

The incident occurred on May 19th, 2024, when Nyanzama, along with Prudence Nyamukondiwa, were drinking beer with the now-deceased, Still Tembo, at the Conrise Farm Shops in Raffingora. A misunderstanding allegedly arose between the trio, which escalated into violence.

According to the state’s case, Nyanzama and Nyamukondiwa assaulted Tembo with a log, striking him all over his body. Tembo was rescued by his brother and taken to Raffingora Rural Hospital. However, his injuries proved to be fatal, and he succumbed to them on May 25th, 2024, at Sally Mugabe Hospital in Harare.

Nyanzama has been remanded in custody until June 14th, 2024, as the investigation into the incident continues. The National Prosecuting Authority of Zimbabwe has emphasized the importance of resolving disputes amicably or seeking third-party mediation, urging the public to refrain from violence.

This tragic incident serves as a stark reminder of the need for amicable conflict resolution and the preservation of human life.
