Air Force Of Zimbabwe Pilot Accused Of Killing Girlfriend Released

Airforce of Zimbabwe pilot Tashinga Musonza (29) who allegedly killed his lawyer girlfriend Lucy Duve (32) last Sunday, has been released from custody after a magistrate ruled he was over detained.

Gweru magistrate Thomas Gurajena ordered Musonza’s release because police had detained him for more than 48 hours. Gurajena said the State will proceed by way of summons because police had detained Musonza for 53 hours which is a violation of the Constitution. Said Gurajena:

The accused was detained in the police holding cells for 53 hours that is from 26 November around 4AM and was only released on 28 November at around 9AM. That is clearly a violation of the Constitution as stated in section 50, subsection 2. Subsection 3 of that same section states that when a person has been detained for more than 48 hours, he/she must be released with immediate effect.
