Soldier Guns Down Machete Gangster After Losing Bar Brawl

A Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) officer appeared before Chipinge magistrate Joshua Nembaware facing a murder charge after he allegedly shot and killed a machete gangster following a bar brawl on 8 March this year.

Foster Macheza (27), based at 3.3 Infantry Reserve Battalion in Chipinge reportedly picked an argument with Richard Mapokodo and his machete gang while drinking beer and watching football at a bar.

Having been beaten by logs and machetes by the gang members, Macheza, who had been deployed at Sweet Acre Farms, reportedly fled from the bar, went to his home and returned to the bar armed with his AK47 service rifle.
