Report by Khulani Nkabinde

Musawenkosi Mpofu (18) appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Chrispen Mberewere on Monday charged with attempted murder, as defined under Section 89 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23.

Prosecutor Masimba Saruwaka told the court that on April 28, the accused approached the complainant, Godwill Mleya, at his homestead and asked him to lend him some music discs.

“The complainant refused to give the discs to the accused arguing that they belonged to somebody else,” he said.

“The accused got angry and stoned the complainant once on the left cheek, flooring him in the process.

“The accused then allegedly drew a knife and stabbed the complainant once in the chest, twice on the left shoulder and once on the left arm, injuring him badly.”

Saruwaka said a report was made to the police, leading to Mpofu’s arrest.

Mberewere remanded Mpofu in custody to June 26 for trial.


  1. Beware of a company Chycry Trading a company in Bulawayo which claim to import cars on your behalf. On condition that you pay 40% deposit and they tell you we deliver within 21 days and the balance will be payable in 24 months. They always advertise in the local newspapers. What they do is they take your deposit and after that they start playing hide and seek. There are more than 20 people who deposited their money last year 2012 but up to now they haven’t received their cars or money back. The directors phone number Mr. Mutoreri (0772 712 583, 0777 150 776 or 0772 712 855) is always off he also owns Club Vegas999.
    They are located at 2nd Floor Parham House, J. Tongogara Street, between 8th and 9th Ave.
    If you visit their offices there is a Mr Tshuma who is a very arrogant fellow. The most painful thing is that they will always tell you that the car will be delivered after a few weeks, but these “few weeks” never materialize. He is never apologetic and repentant.
