Marondera serial killer linked to Bindura murders

By Jerold Sasa

The suspected Marondera serial killer who is facing nine counts of murder has been linked to five other murder cases, which he allegedly committed in Bindura.

The five new cases were read alongside the other nine counts when the 30-year-old Zhantali appeared at the Marondera Magistrates Court for confirmation of extra curial statements.

Zhantali was arrested last Saturday in connection with a spate of murder cases in Marondera and surrounding areas, which were committed between January and March this year.

He will be back in court this Thursday for initial remand after the police applied for a warrant for further detention on Monday.
