MPANDAWANA – A Zimbabwe National Army member who was part of large group of soldiers that went on a rampage beating up innocent people at Mpandawana Growth Point in 2014 resulting in many serious injuries has had his appeal against sentence thrown out by the High Court.
Ronald Mundipi who was 21 then was apprehended by civilians during the attack and handed over to the Police.
He was brought to court and was convicted and sentenced to 48 months in jail at Gutu Magistrates Court.  Mundipi however, appealed to the High Court against both conviction and sentence.
In a ruling received this week, the High Court upheld the lower court's ruling and threw out Mundipi's appeal.
Sources told The Mirror that a warrant of arrest has since been issued against Mundipi so that he starts serving his four-year prison term. Sources also said that Mundipi is still stationed at 4:2 Brigade at Mpandawana.
The rampage by the soldiers in 2014 caused both local and international outcry against the behaviour of members of ZNA. Some people at Mpandawana passed out and spend days in hospital after being attacked willy-nilly with iron bars and logs.
Traditional leaders led by Chief Gutu had to send a petition to the Defence Forces Commander, Constantino Chiwenga and President Mugabe to complain against the unwarranted attack.
It is believed that the attack started after a senior army officer was assaulted at a public drinking place. He is said to have then commandeered his juniors to beat up everyone in the growth point.
