Man Who Stole Meat Is Beaten To Death...

A Glen Norah supermarket owner and his employees hammered a man who had stolen a portion of meat to death.

Tawanda Chivaya, 32, Clive Dizamuhupe, 33, Fidelis Mutandwa, 33, Chiona Nyakunuwa, 32, Cloete Soko, 21, Enough Rusere, 32, and Adolf Nyamayedenga, 28, were arraigned before Harare magistrate Victoria Mashambe facing charges of murder.

The  deceased Israel Mashinge got into Choice Supermarket, owned by Chivaya and where the rest of the accused are employees.

The deceased Mashinge approached the butchery section, lifted a sizable portion of beef before hiding it in his trousers unaware that he was under surveillance.

It is reported that on his way out, the victim was grabbed by one of the accused persons who searched him and recovered the meat portion.

After that, Mashinge was taken to a shop storeroom where they took turns assaulting him using booted feet, open hands and batons.

The accused persons then loaded him into a Toyota Hiace on realising Mashinge was in great pain and unconscious, and dumped him along a dusty road in Glen View 8 industrial site where he later died.

On May 5 at about 5am the deceased body was discovered by a passer-by and a report was made at ZRP Glen Norah.

Investigations were carried out, leading to the arrest of the accused persons.
