Four officers from Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison are on trial for breaking an inmate’s leg after he picked a $1 coin while cleaning the office.
According to the statement, Taona Nyoni, 32, Godweu Njeku, 47, Norman Chari, 38, and Marshal Nyandowe, 30, are suspected of assaulting Masiiwa Vhitorini, Harare magistrate Nyasha Vhitorini’s younger brother.
It is reported that Masiiwa was ordered to give the money to the officers. After he had given the money, they started beating him up and demanding more money.
The accused then helped their victim get to hospital to make sure he did not speak about the assault.
