By Staff Reporter

The attempted murder trial of Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) MP for Sunningdale Maureen Kademaunga started in Harare on Wednesday with the legislator denying the allegations.

The first time lawmaker appeared in court together with Harare City Council Ward 10 Councillor, Clayd Mashozhera, Noel Munhuwei and Daudi Jessub.

They all pleaded innocent to attempted murder and malicious damage to property charges.

According to prosecutors, on August 22 last year, the complainants – Cyril Nyauchi, Artwell Marwa and Spencer Mudarikwa – were moving around Harare’s Sunningdale suburb distributing some food to Zanu PF election agents who were deployed at various polling stations.

They were driving a Toyota Spacio.

It is alleged that when they got to Metro Peach Main Entrance at the corner of Seke Road and Boshoff Road in Sunningdale 1, they were blocked by the four, and 10 other individuals.

Kademaunga and her co-accused, it is further alleged, were driving a white Toyota Noah, a pearl Toyota Mark X, a white commuter omnibus, a Honda Fit and two other cars whose registration numbers were not captured.

Jessub and others disembarked from their vehicles while Kademaunga, Mashozhera and Munhuwei remained in the cars.

They allegedly smashed the windows of the complainants’ car.

Nyauchi was attacked by the mob who allegedly used an axe, golf sticks, whips and button sticks until he lost consciousness.

Marwa and Mudarikwa were also attacked by the mob and suffered severe injuries.

The gang allegedly set the Toyota Spacio on fire and fled.

The trio was assisted by Good Samaritans who ferried them to the hospital.
