    Fungai Jachi Court Reporter
    High Court judge Justice Chinembiri Bhunu has granted Fortunate Nsoro, the Chitungwiza woman who allegedly killed her husband last month, $50 bail pending trial.As part of her bail conditions, Nsoro was ordered to reside at her given address and report to Mabvuku Police Station every Friday and warned not to interfere with State witnesses.

    Justice Bhunu addressed the State’s worries, saying Nsoro was not a flight risk as she was of fixed aboard and it was unlikely that she would interfere with the State witnesses.

    “Applicant has no other criminal charges pending against her; neither does she have a criminal record,” he said. “She has not interfered with the police investigations neither has she threatened nor fiddled with witnesses. She also has a valid defence to the charges she is facing.”

    The State represented by Mr Tapiwa Kasena had opposed bail, saying Nsoro was facing a serious charge and was not a proper candidate for bail.

    Nsoro’s lawyer, Ms Edroth Chizengera of Legal Aid Directorate, argued that the seriousness of an offence was not sufficient ground for denying her bail.

    “My client is of fixed aboard and she has given the court an alternative address,” she said. “Investigations are almost complete, thus there is no danger of interfering with State witnesses or tampering with evidence

    “If admitted to bail, Nsoro will not abscond because she has a valid defence against the charges being levelled against her, thus it is in her best interest to prove her innocence.”

    Nsoro is alleged to have stabbed her husband, Petros Mutasa, after she saw “offensive” messages on his phone from his alleged girlfriend.
    In a fit of rage, Nsoro stabbed Mutasa using three kitchen knives on the arm, chest and neck, killing him instantly.

    Nsoro’s daughter, who was at the crime scene, reported the matter to the police and the three knives were recovered beside Mutasa’s body.

    Meanwhile, Prosper Dembedza reports that a man is at loggerheads with his wife whom he caught making love with her boyfriend inside their church’s toilet during a service.

    Phillip Makotose told the Harare Civil Court yesterday that Edwick Mujuru and her boyfriend turned the church toilet into a love nest while other worshippers were engrossed in the gospel.

    Makotose had been dragged to court by Mujuru who was seeking a protection order against him.

    “On that fateful day, I followed her to church because she had left our minor children with nothing to eat and when I got there I proceeded to the toilet first to relieve myself and that is where I caught her making love with her fellow church mate,” he said.

    Makotose told the court that he suspected that Mujuru was having an extra- marital affair because she had been denying him conjugal rights for over a year.

    Mujuru had submitted that Makotose always physically and verbally abuses her over petty issues.

    Mujuru pleaded with magistrate Mr Nyatsanza to bar Makotose from visiting her home as he was breaching her peace.

    Mr Nyatsanza granted the order in Mujuru’s favour. Herald
