ZRP Officers Sentenced To 15 Months In Prison For Vicious Assault Which Resulted In The Loss Of An Eye

Harare Magistrate Farai Gwitima convicted five Zimbabwe Republic Police officers of assault and sentenced them to an effective 15 months in prison each. The Magistrate sentenced the officers to 18 months in prison each before suspending 3 months on condition of good behaviour.

The officers; Livingston Zvimba, Tendai Musungambira, Sunday Nyaude, Khululekani Dale and Evans Mashonganyika had mounted a spirited defence claiming that they could not be held accountable since the incident had occurred late at night, in poor visibility.

The court heard that the officers assaulted Yvonne Magora with open hands and batons for standing at a road intersection, where they were controlling traffic. This forced her husband, Washington Gezana to intervene to rescue her. The officers then turned on Gezana and assaulted him with batons, open hands and an unknown object, which injured his right eye.

  1. This is the action of a civilised country, in America when a black man is beaten by police they will never be brought to justice!

  2. They should have been charged with attempted murder because as Police Officers they knew that it was wrong of them to do that and had to use minimum force as prescribed by law. Prof. Mudhuku, what’s your take on this

  3. Washington Gezana if you are reading this open a civil suit against these thugs and sue for the loss of your eye.This is heartbreaking.

  4. This act of barbarism and I thought these wer supposed to be the law enforcers busy doing eye surgery with baton sticks
