Former Kambuzuma MP 'Tinashe Maduza' Facing Sodomy, Kidnapping Charges

Harare | Former Kambuzuma MP Tinashe Maduza’s bail application, in a case involving sodomy, robbery and kidnapping, has been removed from the roll by the High Court.

Justice Esther Muremba said without written reasons for the initial denial of bail, she could not make a decision on changed circumstances.

Maduza is facing charges of sodomy, robbery and kidnapping.

His co-accused, Ashley Svondo is facing kidnapping charges and Makosa Mazhilikawo is facing robbery and aggravated indecent assault charges.

The trio’s initial bail application was dismissed by Justice Never Katiyo, who argued that investigations were still underway.

The court heard that on May 31 last year, the complainant (name withheld) went to Maduza’s workplace, demanding his outstanding salary.

Maduza allegedly told the complainant to wait, claiming that someone was going to bring money from his mine in Kwekwe.

After a while, Maduza allegedly took the complainant to Family 24 for a drink, while they waited for the person bringing the money.

They drank alcohol until around 1am and Maduza allegedly drugged the complainant and took him to a lodge in Belvedere.

During the night, Maduza allegedly sodomised the complainant several times, before leaving the lodge at around 5am, while the complainant was asleep.

The three drove to Kopje where Maduza allegedly produced a pistol and ordered the complainant to surrender his phone and identity card.

Mazhilikawo instructed the complainant to take off his clothes and allegedly sodomised him.
