CAPS United captain Method Mwanjali is now a free man after he was granted a $100 bail on Monday pending a court case to be heard on May 4.
Mwanjali was arrested together with team mate Archieford Gutu for allegedly stabbing a Harare man, Tendai Nhunzvi, using a knife twice in the stomach in the early hours of Sunday last week living him battling for his life at Parirenyatwa hospital.
The 33-year-old utility player formerly on the books of Mamelodi Sundowns and Mupumalanga Black Aces had been remanded in custody while his accomplice Gutu was granted bail.
Gutu faces a lesser charge of malicious damage to property after he smashed the rear windscreen of Nhunzvi’s car using an unknown object on the night of the incident.
CAPS United board member and marketing Alois Bunjira confirmed on Monday Mwanjali had his bail application approved by the High Court.
The two are now set to appear in court on May 4.
Mwanjali, a former Warriors captain skippered Zimbabwe to the Cosafa Cup, on home soil, in 2009 when they overcame neighbours Zambia 3-1 at Rufaro, was given the arm band to lead the Green Machine before the start of the 2016 season after five years playing his club football in South Africa.
Gutu also returned home this year and had been earmarked to join his former club Dynamos but opted for Caps United at the last minute.Advertisement
