Magistrate overturns Chief Nemakonde’s judgement

A Chinhoyi civil court magistrate has slashed Chief Nemakonde’s judgement in a case where he had ordered a villager to pay US$1 100 or two cattle and two goats for being found in possession of a cell number belonging to a soldier’s wife.

BY NUNURAI JENA

The magistrate reduced the fine to US$400.

William Chakabveyo of Lion’s Den was however, not satisfied by the magistrate’s ruling, but was happy that he successfully appealed against Chief Nemakonde, whom he believed was fleecing villagers.
“The case will serve as a reminder to Chief Nemakonde that he is not a god in Makonde,” said the ecstatic Chakabveyo.

While awaiting for the appeal case to be heard, Chief Nemakonde took the law into his own hands and forcibly took US$200 from Chakabveyo, a move that was deplored by the magistrate.

Last month, Chakabveyo was summoned to Chief Nemakonde’s communal court in Shackleton, some 10km from Chinhoyi, to answer charges that he was having an extra-marital affair with Lynos Obvias Nyakayavene’s wife, Sharoni Madungwe.

Nyakayavene is a soldier.

Although Madungwe denied being in a relationship with Chakabveyo, Nyakayavene insisted that Chakabveyo had at one time phoned his wife and must therefore pay three head of cattle.

The chief reduced the fine to two cattle and ordered Chakabveyo to pay two goats directly to him.

Chakabveyo was further ordered to pay US$20 for the case having been heard at the chief’s court and another US$20 for wasting “the courts’ time”.

Since he only had US$20 on him, he was asked to surrender his mobile phone.

    So William Chakabveyo was fined for being in possession of a cell phone number belonging to a soldier’s wife!! Is that a crime and under which law is it a crime? Even the magistrate blundered on this one unless we have not been told the whole story. Hapana mhosva kusvika mati abatwa muhupombwe.
