Soldier Axes 3 Men Over A Woman….Chops Off Fingers
Bright Khumbula, a National Army soldier allegedly axed three Harare men leaving one of them without fingers in a heated dispute over a woman.
The alleged committed the offence on December 5 last year at Kuwadzana 1 where one of the complainants, Obert Tagarira was moulding bricks.
Khumbula and his acomplices manhandled Tagarira and drove to riddle Ridge area where they met the other complainants Tinashe Nyabadza and Godfrey Chingobva demanding to see Tafadzwa who is involved in an affair with their woman.
His fellow acomplices were armed with electric shockers, machetes and metal bars which they then used to assault the complaints all over their bodies sustaining serious cuts and chopping off Nyabadzas fingers in the process.
He is appearing before Harare magistrate Hosea Mujaya for attempted murder charges.
The alleged denies the charges arguing that on the day of the incident he was at work however on his other statement he revealed that he did not partake in the fight but only intervened to stop the chaos.
It is reported that Khumbulas statement contradicts his defense and was trying to cook up evidence to support his defense which made the trial to be postponed.
