IN an incident that has left Zvimba villagers shocked, an enraged villager bludgeoned his younger brother to death with a spear following a quarrel.

The suspected killer, Adonia Makondo (35) was arrested for murder after fatally stabbing his brother, Tatenda Makondo (25) on Monday; once on the chest with a spear following a misunderstanding over an undisclosed issue at Farm 181, Zowa.

This Wednesday, Adonia was arraigned before Chinhoyi magistrate Batsirai Madzingira facing a murder charge as defined in Section 47 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act chapter 9:23.

He was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

The state is opposing bail arguing the accused person is facing a serious charge and that he stays at the same homestead as state witnesses.

The matter was remanded to July 8, 2022 for routine remand.
