MASVINGO – Chief Murinye born Ephias Munodawafa has lost a case in which his transport company Zikrag accused a former manager of stealing an HP printer and a Ursus laptop.
The theft case against Precious Mtetwa who was Zikrag transport and logistics manager was dismissed by Masvingo Magistrate Grace Tupiri yesterday.
Magistrate Tupiri granted Mtetwa an application for discharge because the State failed to provide the court with sufficient evidence to constitute a case.
The case was first heard in Chiredzi on June 16, 2021 and Mtetwa was represented by Martin Mureri of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR).
Mureri told The Mirror that he applied for a discharge last week because the State had dragged the matter for almost a year without any hard evidence bring presented.
