Victim’s father breaks down

The father of a murdered MDC activist was reduced to tears at the Gweru High Court while awaiting the trial of the accused.

Dambudzo Chokuda, the father of the murdered Gokwe MDC activist, Moses, was waiting for the trial to begin in which Farai Machaya, the son of Zanu (PF) Midlands Governor and chairperson, has been accused.

Moses Chokuda, was murdered on March 22, 2009 allegedly by Farai Machaya (30) and five other Zanu (PF) supporters: Abel Maphosa (45) brothers Edmore Gana (27) and Bothwell Gana (25), Obert Gavi (23) and Tirivashoma Mawadze (25).

“It pains me that the murderers of my son are yet to face justice when it’s clear they committed the crime. My son suffered greatly,” Chokuda said.

Machaya and his five accomplices are accused of abducting Moses Chokuda and brutally murdering him for supporting the MDC. The victim’s body is still at the Gokwe District Hospital mortuary as his family have refused to bury him before justice is done.

The case, which made it to court after the family of the deceased pleaded with Attorney General Johannes Tomana, is expected to be heard over the next two weeks.
