    Chivhu soldier in court for attempted murder


    CHIKOMBA – A soldier who stays at Plot 20 Maria's Home Chivhu has appeared in court facing attempted murder charges after he allegedly pointed a fire arm and fired at Richard Mataruse.
    Amos Chinotimba (59) appeared before Chivhu Regional Magistrate Fadzai Mtombeni.
    The State heard that on October 22, 2015 Mataruse was herding cattle with Venganai Madhiya in Chinotimba's plot. Chinotimba then approached and told them not to herd cattle in his plot.
    Chinotimba was in possession of 303 rifle used for crop and livestock protection and he then ordered Mataruse to come to where he was but he refused.
    This angered Chinotimba, who then pulled out his rifle from its porch, pointed it at Mataruse and fired a single shot that missed Mataruse.
    He told the court that he fired into the sky in an attempt to scare away Mataruse who was advancing towards him holding an axe.
