ZAKA - A Zimbabwe Republic Police sergeant, Amos Mandiwadzira recently ran amok and assaulted fellow police officers after being caught having sex with a junior police officer's wife.
Mandiwanzira (42) was brought before Masvingo magistrate Peter Madhibha for allegedly assaulting Constable Liberty Kashiri who had accompanied Constable Brian Chikono to his house where they found Madhibha in bed with Chikono's wife.
Chikono is married to Madeline Makonese who had a secret affair with Mandiwanzira. The affair became known in the neighborhood and one of the neighbours tipped Chikono at a local bar where he was watching soccer.
Accompanied by 12 other police officers, Chikono went home and stormed into the room where Mandiwanzira was in bed with his wife.
"When we got to the house, we peeped through some cracks on the door and saw the two lying naked on the bed and my baby was sleeping on the floor. We forced the door open and there was a scuffle as Mandiwanza attempted to run away
"He even assaulted Constable Liberty Kashiri with a fist and Makonese smashed the bulb in the house so that Mandiwanza could escape but we managed to apprehend him," said Chikono.
Mandiwanzira was apprehended and later on appeared before the court but the case was postponed to a later date for continuation of trial with Makaita Chikamhi representing the State.local
