Musician, Biggie Tembo (Jr), appeared at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts yesterday facing allegations of stealing a fellow artiste’s hired music speakers.
The State alleges that on August 7 last year, Ray “Leeroy Kamusena” Lunga hired some speakers from Rugare Council Bar, where Tembo was employed. Lunga then left two of the speakers in Tembo’s custody because they could not fit in his car.
He allegedly hired Tembo as his sound engineer during live music shows, but failed to pay him the agreed fees. Tembo then allegedly confiscated the speakers and sold them two months later to recover his money. Lunga reported the matter to the police, and it later emerged that the speakers had been sold to one Charles Dzoro who sold them to another unknown person.
