    TATENDA CHIZU

    MUSHANDIKE - Five men and one woman from Mushandike resettlement under Chief Charumbira have appeared in court facing public violence charges after they allegedly attacked members of the recently resuscitated Bere Chieftainship.
    The six are said to have driven to Buhera’s homestead where they assaulted everyone present. As they drove there they used a hailer and attacked the new chieftainship which they declared was going to fall.
    Some of the suspects are still at large, according to the State.
    The matter was heard by Provincial magistrate Langton Ndokera last week.
    The complainant is the State represented by Lydia Mboko.
    Fidelis Nyamukondiwa representing the State said that on August 30, 2018 Fedison Marufu (49) of Marufu village, Eliphas Mudenge (64) of Mudenge Village, Urayai Dzinoreva (48) of Machache Village, Junior Charumbira (49) of Junior Charumbira Village, Tachiona Maradza (45) of Mugwira Village and Mathew Muvondori (78) of Village 11 all under Chief Charumbira teamed up with other accused who are still at large and drove from Bhuka Business Centre to villages 11, 12 and 15.
    Maradza was shouting on a loud speaker denouncing the new Bere Chieftainship.
    On arrival at Village 12, Muvodori used a finger to indicate the Bere homestead.
    They allegedly proceeded to Barure homestead where they assaulted Joel Barure and Munyaradzi Barure with open hands while Maradza and others at large denounced Bere’s chieftainship saying pasi na Bere (Bere must fall).
     Judith Barure, a mother to the assaulted rushed to the scene and tried to refrain the aggressors but she was also assaulted.
    The six were later refrained from assaulting the Barures by Elias Jakata.
    Further allegations are that Marufu forcibly entered a kitchen and took away a map showing the boundary of Bere chieftainship. The complainants were medically examined by a Government medical practitioner.
    The matter was remanded to October 15, 2018 for trial.
