Army boss kidnaps man at gunpoint, makes him sit on thorns

Colonel Dalton Muleya (56) of Dulibadzimo Township who is in charge of army training appeared before Gwanda Regional magistrate Mark Dzira who was sitting at the Beitbridge court on Thursday, accused of  kidnapping and threatening Bonang Mukwena with a firearm. Muleya pleaded not guilty of contravening the Fire Arms Act but was however convicted on all counts and the matter was remanded to November 15 for sentencing after he requested to engage the services of another lawyer.

The court heard that on July 2, 2016 Muleya unlawfully pointed a 2,2 millimetre rifle at Bonang Mukwena, in the process contravening the Fire Arms Act [Chapter 10:09]. Muleya grabbed Mukwena by the collar and accused him of reporting him to the police sometime in January 2015 and letting his employer’s cattle stray into his plot.

Mukwena was able to free himself, but Muleya cocked his pistol and pointed it at him forcing him to stop. He ordered his workers to apprehend Mukwena whom he took to his new plantation situated at Bennifer Estates compound. While at the new plantation he forced the complainant to sit on creeping thorns which pierced his buttocks and legs.
