Honest Moyo (22) of Mawane area in Guyu but residing at Capital Block farm in Colleen Bawn, was remanded in custody to July 7 and advised to apply to the High Court for bail when he appeared before Gwanda magistrate, Ms Nomagugu Ncube, on Saturday. Moyo was not formally charged with murder.
He was allegedly found with a human head and male private parts which he allegedly harvested from a mentally ill, homeless man popularly known as Mduna in Colleen Bawn, for suspected ritual purposes after being promised $25 000. Moyo apologised for his actions. The court heard that Moyo allegedly killed Mduna before cutting off his heard and testicles. He proceeded to bury the body in a shallow grave at the dumpsite.
Moyo packed the head and the testicles in his bag and took them to his rural home in Mawane. The matter was discovered after he was visited by his cousin, Mr Thandolwenkosi Ndlovu, who saw the head in a kitchen hut before alerting other villagers who apprehended Moyo and handed him over to the police. In a video, Moyo said that he found Mduna already dead and harvested what he wanted.
