Police officers being investigated for beating murder suspect & forcing him to admit to the crime

Plumtree magistrate, Mr Joshua Mawere has ordered an investigation  into claims that police officers based at Khame Base in Bulilima District assaulted Bongani Ndiweni (22) and forced him to admit to stabbing his neighbour twice.

Ndiweni said that he attempted to escape from the police because they were forcing him to admit to a crime that he did not commit. He said he sustained injuries on the head, shoulder and legs as a result of the assault. Ndiweni was not asked to plead when he appeared before Mr Mawere facing attempted murder and escape from lawful custody charges. He was remanded in custody to July 6.

The court heard that Ndiweni stabbed his neighbour, Mr Brian Moyo, sometime in March after a disagreement. He then fled to Bulawayo where he was arrested on June 20.
