A Zvishavane man, Daniel Simango appeared before Zvishavane Provincial Magistrate, Shepherd Mjanja in connection with rape and murder.
The magistrate did not ask Simango to plead to the charge. Rather, he remanded him in custody to April 24.
It is alleged that Simango raped and strangled Stella Moyo, his drinking partner, on April 7 at midnight. It is also believed that the duo was going home when Moyo was attacked at a bridge between Mandava and Highlands suburbs. Simango is argued to have thrown Moyo’s body into a sewage dam after tying her hands at the back with her sweater.
Moyo’s body was discovered and retrieved from the sewage on the same day in the afternoon. The police then conducted an investigation that led to the arrest of Simango.
