Police have been given till Friday to complete their investigation into the Wedza murders. A court granted an application for further detention of suspect Jaison Muvevi this morning.

Prior to Muvhevhiโ€™s arrest a memo by police in Manicaland province, revealed that Muvhevhi had on January 13, 2022 tried to kill one Raphael Nyahwema at Mutare Boys High.

โ€œAdditional information further collected pertaining to the fugitive Jaison Muvhevhi who shot and murdered three people in Wedza district which include ZRP Officer in Charge Wedza station, Mashonaland East province on 13 January 2023, has it that, around 1000hrs he bought a navy blue work suit with a line reflector at shop 3a Wasu Mall, Mutare CBD.

โ€œLater on, the same day, around 1500hrs Muvhevhi proceeded to Mutare Boys High School ward 11 Mutasa South constituency, where he approached the residential quarters of Mutare Boys High ancillary staff and came across one female, Zvikomborero Mangorwa, aged 23 who was just coming out from taking a bath.

โ€œAt this juncture Muvhevhi inquired from Mangorwa about the number and gender categories of the people who stay at the staff quarters,โ€ read the memo.

After Mangorwa indicated that she was alone, Muvhevhi then took US$10 from his pocket and instructed Mangorwa to buy a chicken and prepare food for him.

โ€œBefore Mangorwa could respond to the fugitiveโ€™s request, a locally known drug addict who stays at the staff quarters, Raphael Nyahwema, who is also a son to the Mutare Boys High School caretaker, suddenly arrived in a drunken stupor and demanded Muvhevhi to account for his presence at the school staff quarters.

โ€œThe interruption made by Nyahwema irritated Muvhevhi who withdrew his holstered pistol, type yet to be ascertained by the ballistic experts, fired three shots at Nyahwema who was within a ten meters radius. All the three shots missed the target who sprinted for dear life, the moment he saw the gun being withdrawn,โ€ read the memo.
