A church pastor from Glen View in Harare is facing a murder charge after he allegedly swerved his Toyota Prado in a bid to shake off his girlfriend’s husband who was clinging on the roof of his car.
Sande Mobile (48) of 350 19th Crescent 1 Glen View travelled all the way to Bindura to see his married girlfriend Beauty Madzonzoni, unaware that he was walking into a trap with the girlfriend’s husband hiding and ready to pounce.
Mobile appeared before Bindura Magistrate Josleen Madaka after allegedly killing Addmore Makombe (36), the husband to his girlfriend.
Prosecutor Edward Katsvairo told the court that on July 8 Makombe hatched a plan with his wife Madzonzoni to trap her boyfriend Mobile.
Madzonzoni called Mobile to come and pick her in Bindura town and the unaware Mobile came driving his unregistered Toyota Prado while Makombe laid an ambush.
Upon Mobile’s arrival her girlfriend entered the car before the car moved Makombe jumped on the roof of the car.
Mobile sped off with Madzonzoni while Makombe clutched on top of the car’s roof.
He was signalled to stop at a roadblock and changed direction while swerving the car to shake off Makombe.
The accused pushed his girlfriend out of the moving car and swerved his car such that Makombe fell off and died on the spot.
Mobile was subsequently arrested and dragged to court ■
