Chadcombe case, informant appears in court

By ZBC Reporter

Shine Tanaka Nyamhunga who allegedly provided armed robbers with information in the Chadcombe robbery case has appeared in court this Saturday charged with armed robbery.

Nyamhunga was remanded in custody by a Harare magistrate to the 28th of this month.

It is alleged that Nyamhunga and his alleged accomplices connived to steal from their employer.

The court heard that Nyamhunga told his accomplices that his employer kept cash in a safe at his home in Chadcombe.

However, their plan  failed to work after   the gang attacked the wrong house where three of the alleged robbers were killed in a shootout.

Meanwhile, Nyasha Chibwana and Trevor Makandigona appeared in court charged with murder after they allegedly assaulted the now deceased before robbing him of his valuables in Chitungwiza.

The court heard that the deceased’s body was left along the road where it was found by passersby the following morning.

Still at the courts, 42 year old Paul Goba is facing murder charges after he allegedly assaulted his son following a misunderstanding over change.

It is alleged that the now deceased succumbed to the injuries sustained from the assault.

Goba was remanded in custody and advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
