Coustin Moyo from Bulawayo who was released from prison under the Presidential amnesty last year was remanded in custody to today after he allegedly broke into the Khami Prison Complex thrice, assaulted a prison guard and robbed four people.
He pleaded guilty to all charges when he appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Stephen Ndlovu.
It is alleged that on separate days, Moyo broke into Mr Limgcineni Sibanda’s home at the prison complex and stole a plasma television set and money; robbed Ms Mphosina Sibanda of her money, cellphone and ladies sandals; forced Ms Zvisinei Ndlovu to surrender her handbag, a cell phone and a satchel and attacked Mr Ngqondo Moyo with a brick on the head at Khami Prison Complex. The assault was reported by Ngqondo’s wife who witnessed it.
Some of the stolen properties were however recovered on the day of Moyo’s arrest.
