The suspect is alleged to have snatched her bag of fare money but was arrested only a few hours after the incident by CID Homicide detectives in Harare.
The conductor, Joyce Kuzhumbwa started work on 1 July last year for Lofombo Buses operating under the Zupco franchise.
The court heard that after the incident, Marowa fled the scene and went back to his workplace only to confess to his supervisor the following day.
He is being charged for contravening the Firearms Act. Marowa is also facing allegations of stealing 25 litres of diesel from his employer.
He has been remanded in custody to the 30th of this month.
