MASVINGO – A man from Marashanye Village under Chief Charumbira in Masvingo, opened ghastly wounds on the backs of several of his neighbour’s herd of cattle after he found them grazing on his crop.

Jameson Sinamayi appeared before Masvingo Magistrate Ritaiswe Silaigwana last week.

The allegations are that on June 8, 2022, at around 11 am Shepherd Marisa Mutanha left his beasts grazing near Tizai Village. The beasts then got into Sinamayi ‘s field where they severely destroyed the crops. Sinamayi got angry and struck the beasts on their backs with an axe.

Mutanha was later informed by Adam Zimhofu that he saw Sinamayi driving the cattle out of his field with an axe. 

Mutanha made a Police report leading to the arrest of Sinamayi. Mutanha and Sinamayi are related.

Prosecutor Blessing Madongorere postponed the matter to a later date for sentence. https://masvingomirror.com
