A man from Sosonye Jingatira Village under Chief Murove in Mwenezi was found digging his mother’s grave recently.

Moses Gumbo (32) who had gone down 1,4m told his captors that his mother Miriam Magwegwe, was appearing to him in his sleep and telling him that she was buried alive. He said that his mother also instructed him to exhume her.
The mother died a few months back.

Gumbo was arraigned before Mwenezi Resident Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa on Friday last week facing a charge of violating graves.
The court ordered him to be examined by two doctors as it is suspected that the accused is mentally challenged.

Leyton Katsidzira was prosecuted.

IN OTHER NEWS:Owen Ncube Pulls Out Of ZANU PF Midlands Race

STATE security minister Owen Mudha Ncube has dropped out of the race for the Zanu PF Midlands provincial chairmanship as the deadly internecine fights for control of the party heats up following the indefinite postponement of provincial polls last month.

He is now backing former national youth league deputy secretary member Edson Chiherenge Chakanyuka.

Mudha had earlier indicated his intention to challenge the incumbent, Daniel Mackenzie Ncube.

Zanu-PF sources told NewZimbabwe.com Thursday that things were going haywire in the province amid heavyweight clashes between Local Government minister July Moyo and his long-term nemesis Joram Gumbo who both claim to be the godfathers of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s home province.


Mudha belongs to the July Moyo camp while Mackenzi-Ncube belongs to Gumbo’s faction, according to insiders.

“The tussles must be understood in their proper context. We are hearing that Cde Chiherenge is going to run for the provincial post to replace Mackenzie. However, it must be known that Mackenzie himself is not a pushover. Mackenzie is well respected within the provincial party structures. Even the president has high regard and trust of Cde Mackenzie,” a source said.
