Imbiber jailed for attempted murder

A 20-YEAR-OLD Bindura man is cursing the day he drank too much alcohol and ended up attacking an innocent pedestrian.

 

Takudzwa Mutoro (20) was sentenced to seven years in jail by Bindura magistrate Amos Mbobo for attempting to kill Lloyd Madzivarawa with a vehicle shock absorber.

 

 

The magistrate suspended three years on condition of good behavior.

 

Prosecutor Ngoni Kaseke told the court that on December 8, Lloyd disembarked from a kombi around 16:00hours when Mutoro pounced on him with his accomplices who are still at large.

 

They started assaulting him with open hands and Mutoro pulled a vehicle shock absorber which he used to assault the complainant, several times all over the body.

 

The assailants stopped assaulting him when he became unconscious.

 

Mutoro was later arrested by the mob who surrendered him to the police.

 

The convict told the court that he committed the offence under the influence of alcohol.
