The late businessman and Harare socialite Shingi Mukandi’s killer has been arrested after he flew in from South Africa.

Alfred Machipisa was arrested at the Robert Mugabe International Airport and is in quarantine under police custody.

Machipisa, who was found guilty of causing the death of the socialite in a hit and run accident along Harare Drive, was released on bail pending appeal at the High Court and then became a fugitive of justice.

A warrant of arrest was issued against him on October 21 last year by provincial head magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwuriro after the High Court upheld the ruling of the lower court that he was guilty.

He was sentenced to 48 months in prison and twelve months were suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar offense to culpable homicide in the next five years making it 36 months effective.
