Taguma Chakanyuka (36) a member of the Air Force of Zimbabwe (AFZ) appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzayi Mugwagwa facing charges of murdering fellow airman Constantine Tapiwa Mudanda of Manyame Airbase. Chakanyuka allegedly assaulted Mudanda after the two had a misunderstanding when they were drinking together after Mudanda boasted that Chakanyuka was looking after his child. Mudanda died after succumbing to head injuries sustained during the assault.
Magistrate Mugwagwa did not ask Chakanyuka to enter a plea and instead directed him to apply for bail at the High Court. He was remanded to the 24th of September for trial.
