Duo Sentenced To Death For Murdering Senior Army Officer

Admire Maorere (28) and Windas Munzweru (27) were sentenced by High Court judge Justice Garainesu Mawadze to death by hanging after being convicted of murder with actual intent.

The duo robbed and fatally stabbed a senior army officer who had offered them a lift from Gutu in May last year. They hid Captain Phio Jeketera’s body in his vehicle’s loading box before dumping the car near Craft Centre along the Masvingo-Beitbridge Highway. The two, together with their alleged accomplice, Nyasha Sango, who is still at large, stabbed Jeketera (51) several times all over the body with an Okapi knife until he died.

Jeketera was traveling from Harare to his rural home in Zaka when he gave a lift to Maorere and Munzweru who were going to Gutu. The duo had asked Captain Jeketera to stop the car a few kilometres from Gutu-Roy turn-off under the pretext that one of them wanted to visit his aunt’s homestead nearby.
