Municipality police officer in court for throwing spike

Ehud Murasiramwa (50) who is a municipality police officer in Mutare appeared before magistrate Perseverance Makala, charged with malicious damage to property after he allegedly threw a metal spike in the path of a moving vehicle in the city centre resulting in damage worth $250 to the vehicle. He was remanded him to October 6 this year on free bail. 

The court heard that on September 15, Murasiramwa found Nyasha Kavhukatema parking his Honda Fit car at Meikles shop in Mutare and accused him of parking at an undesignated place. When Kavhukatema tried to drive away, Murasiramwa reportedly threw a spike underneath the vehicle and fled the scene.

Kavhukatema’s car was towed away to the Civic Centre by other municipal police officers who allegedly demanded an $80 000 fine for damages caused to the spike. Kavhukatema then reported the case at Mutare Central Police Station, leading to Murasiramwa’s arrest.
