Mwanjali freed on bail

HARARE - The High Court yesterday granted bail to CAPS United captain Method Mwanjali, who is being charged with attempted murder after spending almost a week in remand prison.

Mwanjali’s first bid for freedom hit a brick wall last week at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts before he was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

After getting no joy from the lower court, there was relief for the United captain after Justice David Mangota granted him $100 bail and the State did not oppose. 

It is alleged that on April 17 at around 4am Mwanjali was at 1+1 Happy Club at Long Cheng Plaza in the company of teammate Archford Gutu.

When they were getting out of the complex Gutu’s Nissan Elgrand van almost collided with Tonderai Nhunzvi’s Toyota Altezza.

Gutu fumed at Nhunzvi and accused him of driving badly.

Nhunzvi then closed his car windows but an infuriated Gutu reached for an unknown object and smashed the windscreen before returning to his car.

Nhunzvi’s friends Lionel Muchena, Edgar Muchibwa and Marian Chikomo intercepted Gutu from getting into the motor vehicle where Mwanjali was waiting.

This attracted onlookers to the scene prompting Mwanjali to also leave the car to inquire what had transpired.

Mwanjali and Nhunzvi began arguing before the Makepekepe skipper returned to Gutu’s car where he retrieved a knife which he allegedly used to stab the complainant.
