HARARE – Tariro Musanhi, 35, allegedly used his Toyota D4D as a weapon and crashed into Margret Samanyanga’s Honda Fit numerous times on the side and front while she was inside, according to the Harare Magistrates Court on Friday.
Musanhi, of Wilson Drive in Greendale, also flashed a pistol and threatened to murder Samanyanga, 29, during the July 26 incident.
Musanhi was not asked to enter a plea to accusations of attempted murder and pointing a handgun when he appeared before Harare regional magistrate Feresi Chakanyuka, who placed him on US$500 bail until August 28.
As part of his bail conditions, he was ordered to report to police every Monday and Friday.
Prosecuting, Ephraim Zinyandu told the court that at around 7PM on July 26, Samanyanga parked her vehicle near a Total service station at the corner of Mutare Road and Wilson Drive.
Musanhi, the court heard, parked next to Samanyanga’s Honda Fit in his Toyota D4D before confronting her over their marital problems.
An enraged Musanhi then drove his vehicle and rammed into the Honda Fit several times into the side and front.
“He disembarked and produced an unidentified pistol which he pointed at Samanyanga threatening to shoot her. Samanyanga noticing the firearm sped off from the scene and reported the matter at ZRP Rhodesville,” Zinyandu charged.
Musanhi was arrested at his workplace – AVM Africa – in Msasa on July 28.
