Boo-boys ring leader gives self up

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Nyaradzo Bakari

EX­PELLED Zanu-PF Bu­l­awayo Cen­tral district chair­man Magura Charumbira (34) sus­pected to be the ring leader of a clique of rowdy party sup­port­ers that booed the First Lady Dr Grace Mu­gabe dur­ing the Bu­l­awayo Pres­i­den­tial In­ter­face Rally early this month has handed him­self over to the po­lice.

He sur­ren­dered a week af­ter po­lice an­nounced that they had launched a man­hunt for him for heck­ling the First lady.

He and his gang mem­bers al­legedly sang and made ges­tures throw­ing hands in the air af­ter the First Lady said Higher and Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion, Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Pro­fes­sor Jonathan Moyo was be­ing per­se­cuted for noth­ing.

Charumbira who has since been ex­pelled from the party for his con­duct at the rally was ac­com­pa­nied to Bu­l­awayo Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion by his lawyer Mr Christopher Dube-Banda Nzarayapenga and Part­ners.

A Chron­i­cle news crew ob­served him as he ar­rived at the po­lice sta­tion at around 11.30 AM. Mr Dube-Banda said his client was in po­lice cus­tody. He said Charumbira was likely to ap­pear in court to­day.

“I can con­firm that my client handed him­self to the po­lice. He is in po­lice cus­tody for now and will most prob­a­bly ap­pear in court to­mor­row morn­ing,” he said.

Last Fri­day, four mem­bers of Charumbira’s al­leged gang ap­peared in court charged with un­der­min­ing the author­ity of the Pres­i­dent and were each granted $50 bail.

Mabutho Lucky Moyo (32) of Loben­gula, May­i­bongwe Evans Zvi­gadza (28) of Bar­bour­fields, Wal­ter Sibanda (24) of Tsha­bal­ala and Dephine Dz­vange (33) of Nketa 7 sub­urb are set to ap­pear at Bu­l­awayo Re­gional court on Novem­ber 23 for trial.—@ NyarieBakie of Dube-Banda
