Four years in jail for MDC official killers

Murderers of the late MDC official, Cephas Mugura, who was killed in Mudzi in 2012 were yesterday sentenced to four years in prison.

High Court Judge, Justice Musakwa on Wednesday handed down the sentence to David Chimukoko and Graciano Kazingizi.

One year was suspended on condition of good behaviour.

Two of the accused persons died while in remand prison in 2012.

In passing the sentence, Justice Musakwa said the case cannot be classified as murder or culpable homicide but qualifies as a case of public violence.

Magura died from injuries sustained during an assault by Chimukoko and Kazingizi at Chimukoko Business Centre during an MDC organised rally.
