The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has said some bones and parts of a skull were recovered recently in a toilet at the homestead of Tapiwa Makore Senior.
Makore (Snr) and his herdsman Tafadzwa Shamba are the main accused in the murder case of seven-year-old Tapiwa Makore junior who was killed in Murehwa in September before his body was dismembered.
ZRP National Spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, said acting on a tip-off, police in Murehwa sought the services of Murehwa Rural District Council, which provided a grader and a front end loader that destroyed the toilet.

The bones picked from the toilet as well as a bloodstained tail of an unidentified animal found in the accused’s bedroom were taken for forensic examination.
In a related development, police are investigating the cause of a fire which burnt down Tapiwa Makore Senior’s kitchen this Saturday.
A villager who noticed the fire alerted fellow villagers but their combined efforts failed to douse the blaze.
