Andrew Dumba of Mkoba 9 in Gweru allegedly teamed with five other CIO operatives and beat up Dennis Manyongori, of 5 Brigade Headquarters, before robbing him of $300. Gweru provincial magistrate Phathekhile Msipa postponed Manyongori’s trial to tomorrow.

Manyongori tried to relieve himself near the CIO offices at the railway junction, when he was spotted by six men who grabbed and assaulted him.

Allegations by the State are that on November 15 last year at around 6am, the complainant tried to relieve himself and was spotted by Dumba and his five colleagues.

The complainant was allegedly assaulted by the accused and his colleagues several times all over the body with a plank and a broom stick.

Further allegations are that Manyongori was ordered to surrender all the money he had and he gave Dumba $300. He was ordered to leave the offices using a backdoor.

Manyongori later reported the matter to the police, leading to the arrest of the accused person.
