MADZIRO butch­ery man­ager Sim­barashe Chakan­d­i­nakira, who was fac­ing charges of neg­li­gently caus­ing bod­ily harm, is now a free man fol­low­ing his ac­quit­tal by a Mutare court.

Chakan­d­i­nakira was ac­quit­ted by Mutare pro­vin­cial mag­is­trate Mr Tendai Mahwe last week. He was be­ing charged with neg­li­gently caus­ing se­ri­ous bod­ily harm. The charges arose af­ter Knowl­edge Kaseke, whose hand had been ac­ci­den­tally am­pu­tated by a ma­chine at Madziro Abat­toir, had filed the crim­i­nal charges against him. Chakan­d­i­nakira, who was be­ing rep­re­sented by Mutare lawyer, Mr Hugo Tanaya of Tanaya Law firm, de­nied the charges.

Mr Mr Brian Goto pros­e­cuted. Mr Goto had told the court that on June 20, 2016 Kaseke was re­pair­ing a min­cer ma­chine at Madziro Abat­toir on the out­skirts of Mutare.

He fur­ther al­leged that Chakan­d­i­nakira switched on the elec­tric min­cer ma­chine while Kaseke was still re­pair­ing it, lead­ing to the ac­ci­den­tal am­pu­ta­tion of his hand on the shoul­der by the ma­chine.
