    MVUMA- The case in which Chief Chirumhanzu born Gerald Mudzengi is accused of wrongly impounding cattle from farmers he accused of working during chisi (sacred day) has been referred to the High Court.
    Magistrate Tawengwa Chibanda who is based at Mvuma referred the case to the High Court after noting that Chief Chirumanzu's ruling to impound the cattle was endorsed by another magistrate.
    In his ruling Chibanda said he cannot review a case by another magistrate and has therefore referred the case to a higher court.
    The appeal by the farmers to have Chirumhanzu's ruling to impound the beasts and have the cattle returned was supposed to be heard at Mvuma two weeks ago.
    The complainants in the matter are Violet Bare, Ellen Tadiwa and Giftha Pasipamire who are accusing Chirumhazu  of arbitrarily and without lawful bases confiscating more than seven herds of cattle and unquantified goats from the complainants.
    Chirumanzu accused the farmers of conducting operations on a sacred day (Chisi) a Thursday which in customarily should not be worked.
    The complainants were represented by Legal Resource Foundation.
    Meanwhile a   Commission of Enquiry appointed by the relevant Ministry arrives today (20 July 2017) in Mvuma to investigate various allegations raised against Chief Chirumhanzu through a petition written to President Mugabe.
