A 29-year-old man accused of gruesomely killing a taxi driver before robbing him of his service vehicle has appeared in court charged with robbery and murder.
Emmanuel Mapfumo of Stand No 4 Thornhill Extension, Gutu, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Beitbridge Magistrate Mr Trevor Nyatsanza who remanded him in custody to October 25.

It is alleged that Mapfumo tortured the now deceased Cliff Chioza and went on to stab him twice on the right side of the chest on October 3.

 The incident, which is the sixth case of robbery in the last two weeks, occurred near the Mfelandawonye area.
