Tickerhead: Momberume appears in court, charged with murder
Hatirarami Momberume is facing charges of murder and having a sexual relationship with a minor after allegedly impregnating 14 year old Anna Machaya who died while giving birth at a church shrine in Marange.
The accused appeared before Mutare magistrate Lucy Mungwari who remanded him in custody to the 9th of next month. The State led by prosecutor Tirivanhu Mutyasira alleges that Momberume caused the death of the minor by failing to take her to a specialist as there was real risk of complications considering her age.
Momberume is also facing charges of having a sexual relationship with a minor after he impregnated the girl. The matter came to light after it went viral on social media, leading to investigations by the police.
