NO INTERPRETER : CHINESE MAN'S TRIAL STALLS


The trial of a Chinese national who  shot two workers failed to kick off yesterday because there was no Chinese interpreter.

Zhang Xuelin (50) appeared briefly before provincial magistrate Mr Edwin Marecha facing two counts of attempted murder.

Xuelin, a manager at Reden Mine in Shamrock Park in Gweru was not asked to plead as there was no Chinese interpreter which the state said will only be available at the next court date.

Xuelin who shot one of his employees, Mr Kenneth Tachiona three times on both thighs while another employee Mr Wendy Chikwaira had his chin grazed by a bullet, was remanded in custody to July 7.
