Shingi Mukandi’s “Killer” Refuses To Answer Questions
Alfred Takudzwa Machipisa the man who was arrested and charged with killing businessman and socialite Shingi Mukandi in a hit and run accident last year refused to testify in his own defence.
Machipisa who is facing charges of culpable homicide and failure to stop after an accident refused to participate in his own defence saying that he was invoking his right to remain silent and refused to answer questions from Prosecutor Isheunesu Mhiti. Machipisa said,
“I am reserving my right to be silent as defined in section 70 of the Constitution,”
Mukandi died on the night of July 22, 2017, in what was initially suspected to be a hit and run accident as he approached his home in Mount Pleasant. He was 33. He was travelling on a motorcycle and died on the spot after being hit by Machipisa. The State has alleged that Machipisa fled the scene without giving any assistance or checking if Mukandi was injured. He allegedly hid the accident-damaged vehicle at his brother, Fanuel’s place at Zambezi Flats, Mabelreign, Harare.
Fanuel told the court that he was in Alfred’s car when the accident happened and testified that they drove off without rendering any aid to Mukandi. Mukandi’s father, Benjamin, also told the court that he suspected that his son was a victim of premeditated murder as the scene was not consistent with an accident.
Magistrate Edwin Marecha rolled the matter over to November 14 for judgment.
