Glen View cop murder case: Police give conflicting statements

HARARE - Police officers who arrested MDC activists on charges of killing a police officer in Harare’s Glen View suburb last year continue giving conflicting statements on the fateful day’s events.

Investigating officer Clever Ntini told High Court Judge Chinembiri Bhunu during trial that three of his officers, Victor Mafavhuke, Spencer Nyararai and one Chikura, who has since died, witnessed some of the MDC activists stoning the cop.

But all of the police officers denied witnessing any of the activists killing the cop when they appeared on the witness stand prior to Ntini’s testimony.

Testifying under cross-examination from defence lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa, Ntini said all the three police details were under cover and watched some of the accused committing murder. - Staff Writer
