8 Uzumba People Arrested For Beating “Thief” To Death


Eight people from Uzumba Maramba Pfungwe have been arrested for beating a suspected burglar to death.

They were remanded in custody to May 22.

It is the State’s case that on May 5, 2023, at Nyakusamwa Village, at around 1pm, the accused apprehended the now-deceased Learnmore Kambamura before assaulting him on allegations that he was stealing their property.

Kambamura was later ferried to one Kudakwashe Chibhagidhi’s homestead, where he revealed the accused persons assaulted him with booted feet and clenched fists.

Chibhagidhi reported the matter to ZRP Mutawatawa, leading to the arrest of the accused.

Kambamura, however, later died upon admission at Mutawatawa Hospital.
