The High Court has granted bail to jazz singer Dudu Manhenga pending an appeal against her sentence over culpable homicide.

Report by Online Reporter

The 33-year-old musician was sentenced to 18 months two weeks ago on her own plea of guilty for knocking down and killing motorcyclist Graham Martin Millward three years ago.

The court heard that Manhenga only had a learner’s licence when she crashed into Millward’s motorcycle along Sherwood Drive in Harare’s Mabelreign suburb in 2010.

Manhenga is said to have failed to give way to Millward as she turned right into the driveway of a residential property in her Toyota Spacio vehicle. Millward suffered serious injuries which led to his death upon admission at West End Hospital.

  1. Prison is for the poor, as long as you have a bit of money to engage a lawyer the learned judges will grant you bail for a kickback notwithstanding the court aquo adhering to the sentencing guidelines what prospects of success are there in an appeal where the accused flagrantly broke the law driving without a licence and causing death. This reveals the extent of corruption in Zimbabwean courts, it’s sets a bad precedent for non- licenced drivers, cry my beloved motherland.
