TWO Harare men were hauled before the courts yesterday for allegedly murdering a man who asked for sex from their female friend during a beer drink.
Trymore White and Roy Kufahakurotyi appeared before magistrate Victoria Mashamba facing charges of fatally stabbing Thabiso Chatata at a night club in Kuwadzana. Mashamba remanded them in custody and has advised them to apply for bail at the High Court.
Allegations are that on April 10, 2019 at about 0300 hours, both accused persons were in the company of two ladies named Hilda Fourth and Nyaradzo Resoro. Chatata reportedly approached Resoro soliciting for sexual favours.
The accused persons confronted him armed with a pool stick and assaulted the deceased twice before the doorman Tinashe Chabvuta intervened, the court heard. It is the State’s case that Chatata wrestled with Kufahakurotyi over the stick and during the commotion; White drew out a knife and charged towards the deceased.
White allegedly stabbed Chatata three times at the back, thigh and left arm and he fell down before the accused persons fled.
