Police officers reported to the court for breaching their bail conditions

Six police officers, Munyaradzi Bvukumbwe (23), Vivian Kapaso (25), Herbert Tsiga (25), Eriswort Gazimbi (27), Khululekhani Dale (27) and Prize Mpofu (27), who are facing charges of assaulting a commuter omnibus operator at a police post in Eastlea, Harare, were yesterday reported to the court for breaching their bail conditions.

The six were issued with a warrant of arrest on Tuesday after they allegedly left court in the afternoon, when they revealed that their lawyer, Steven Chikotora, had not come to court for their case. However, the warrant was cancelled after Chikotora submitted that he was attending another matter at the High Court.


The witness, Gift Mukusha, told the court that the police officers visited his house asking him to withdraw the matter and he refused. He said he had audio evidence, where the cops  were promising to pay all his medical bills, saying they were in trouble at work. Chikotora asked Mukusha if he had evidence that the suspects visited his residence, to which he replied that his child and wife could testify. One of the suspects, Kapaso, allegedly ate Mukusha’s supper at his residence on the day in question. Chimboza was expected to rule on the matter later yesterday.
