Top cop beaten up for bed­ding ju­nior’s wife

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Whins­ley Masara

JU­NIOR of­fi­cers at Gutu Po­lice Sta­tion al­legedly as­saulted and hand­cuffed their su­pe­rior af­ter one them caught him pants down with his wife.

The se­nior cop al­legedly tried to punch his way out of the house and broke one of the con­sta­bles’ nose.

But his an­gry ju­niors bashed and sub­dued him dur­ing the in­ci­dent which hap­pened at around 10PM at Gutu Po­lice Sta­tion on Mon­day.

A po­lice source said Sergeant Amos Mandi­wanza sent a Con­sta­ble Chikono on an er­rand so that he could re­main hav­ing sex with Mrs Chikono.

Un­be­known to him, Cst Chikono had re­ceived a tip off from col­leagues that his wife was hav­ing an af­fair with Sgt Mandi­wanza.

“Chikono plot­ted an am­bush with his two friends. He pre­tended to go on the er­rand. The trio watched Sgt Mandi­wanza sneak­ing into Cst Chikono’s house,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer who de­clined to be named.

“Mo­ments later, they walked in on the love­birds who were naked in bed, hav­ing sex. Sgt Mandi­wanza be­came ag­gres­sive and at­tacked Cst Kashiri (24) who was one of Cst Chikono’s friends,” said the of­fi­cer.

The source said Sgt Mandi­wanza punched Cst Kashiri twice on the nose, re­sult­ing in him bleed­ing.

“He charged at Cst Kashiri and punched him twice on the nose. Blood gushed out but Cst Kashiri held onto the nude sergeant’s legs. Cst Chikono and the other friend clob­bered Sgt Mandi­wanza un­til he screamed for mercy. They then hand­cuffed him,” said the of­fi­cer.

The source said as the trio dragged a naked Sgt Mandi­wanzira to the Charge Of­fice, he begged them to let him dress up.

The con­sta­bles, said the source, al­lowed him to wear a pair of jeans and by then, a crowd of po­lice of­fi­cers had gath­ered to wit­ness the spec­ta­cle.

“The crowd en­cour­aged Cst Chikono to fur­ther as­sault Sgt Mandi­wanza but an in­spec­tor came and or­dered them to go to the Charge Of­fice. Cst Kashiri made an as­sault re­port. The RRB num­ber is 2762057,” said the source.

An­other wit­ness who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity said: “We no­ticed some­thing was amiss when we of­ten saw Sgt Mandi­wanza leav­ing Cst Chikono’s house when­ever Cst Chikono was away on duty. Some peo­ple claimed they had seen Sgt Mandi­wanza kiss­ing and fondling Cst Chikono’s wife at the gate at night.

“I’m not sure who tipped off Cst Chikono but the trio ambushed Sgt Mandi­wanza while he was hav­ing a nice time in that man’s bed. A fight broke out and he hit Cst Kashiri who then made a re­port.”

Masvingo po­lice spokesper­son In­spec­tor Char­ity Mazula said she had not heard of the in­ci­dent but re­quested time to get de­tails on the mat­ter.
