Munyaradzi Junior Mawadze (21), who is the son of Masvingo resident judge, Justice Garainesu Mawadze, has been arrested for the murder of the Harare mobilephone dealer, Sipo Mncube.

He was on Wednesday arrested together with Elvin Dongo Saungweme (22) and Dylon Balani (22). The trio stabbed the dealer and dumped the corpse in Ruwa.

Mawadze, a first-year law student at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) fled to Masvingo where he was tracked and arrested. Police brought him to Harare for further investigations where he reportedly admitted to murdering the dealer.

Yesterday police recovered the body that was in a decomposing state and took it to Parirenyatwa Hospital for post-mortem.

The three were yesterday still in custody and are expected to appear in court today.
Last month a break-in was reported at the judge’s Waterfalls residence where the same judge’s son claimed he was attacked by robbers who stripped the judge’s official car of its wheels and other components.
