A soldier and his colleague were on Tuesday arraigned before Harare Magistrates’ Court on allegations stealing water tapes and electrical cables from former President Robert Mugabe’s Blue Roof residence.
The duo, Ngonidzashe Kapasura (26) stationed at the Presidential Guard unit, State House and his accomplice Raymond Chahwanda (23) were both remanded in custody to today for trial when they appeared before magistrate Victoria Mashamba charged with unlawful entry.
TIt is the State’s case that on January 6 this year, Peter was carrying out perimeter wall checks when he met Kapasura and Chahwanda, who had unlawfully entered the property.
Peter then searched the pair and recovered two water tapes, 15 metres of electric cables and a wall switch stolen from one of the rooms.
The State alleges the stolen property valued at $150 was later handed over to the police and will be submitted in court as exhibits.
