‘Violent’ ZCC Mutendi Church members locked up


GOKWE — Four members of the ZCC Mutendi Church were on Tuesday locked up in remand prison after they allegedly attacked a resident, who they have been in a long-standing house dispute with.


Govhati Mutendi (37), Frank Mutendi (29), Webster Mutendi (25) and Tanaka Mutendi (24) were not asked to plead to assault charges when they appeared before Gokwe magistrate Sheppard Mjanja.

The magistrate remanded them in custody to today after the State requested for time to assess and revise the charges.

The court heard that the Mutendis and the complainant, Melody Sayeya of number 2666 Mapfungautsi in Gokwe, have a long-standing house dispute.

On May 24 this year at 10am, the four went to Sayeya’s house and ordered her to vacate it before they went away.

They returned a few hours later and ordered her to pack all her goods and move out.

They again left, but upon their return, Sayeya had not vacated.

It is the State case that they became violent and Frank picked a wooden stool and threw it onto the French door.

The others also picked bricks and threw them onto window panes. One of the “missiles” hit Sayeya.

They allegedly further manhandled her and pushed her to the wall.

Sayeya later reported the matter to the police, leading to the arrest of the four.


  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.
