    CHIKOMBA - A superstitious defendant who chewed some herbs while he stood in the witness box to answer to a peace order brought against him was ordered out of court by Magistrate Henry Sande.
       Magistrate Sande became suspicious when Shingirai Nyamadzawo of Farm 415, Wiltshire's statements became barely audible and told him that he was munching some muti. He then ordered Nyamadzawo to go and spit out the herb as his tricks did not work in his court. Nyamadzawo did not refute the observation.
         Magistrate Sande went on to grant the peace order against Nyamadzawo.
    Nyamadzwo was defending himself against an  application made by his nephew, Tanga Nyamadzawo  who said the  defendant was harassing him and accused him of inheriting his (the defendant) father's name  when he did not belong to the Nyamadzawo clan.
       "Go out and spit that which you are chewing. It does not work here," Magistrate Sande said, and amid laughter from the court.
