Man Who Murdered And R_ped Roman Catholic Nun Freed

The man who murdered a Roman Catholic Sister before r_ping her dead body was on Wednesday freed by High Court Judge, Erica Ndewere.

The man who is from Mutoko and identified as Potani cannot be punished because he committed the offence when he was mentally sick, the judge ruled. Patience Mavinganidze, the doctor who examined Potani had said:

My examination revealed that Enock Potani started showing symptoms of mental disorder in 2013. He would burn houses and property, shout at people and bath continuously.

Medical certificates done at the time show that he had paranoid delusions (excessive suspiciousness), auditory and visual hallucinations, hearing and seeing things not there.

At the time of the alleged offence, he was mentally disordered which prevented him from appreciating the wrongfulness of his actions. I examined him, he is now of sound mind.

Potani murdered Sister Plaxedes Kamundiya who was an official at St Georges High School in Mutoko. She had gone to The Glorious Cross of Life shrine in Mutemwa Mountain for a prayer retreat.

Kamundiya’s body was found a few days after she had gone missing. Potani confessed to killing her.
