Hat killer gets 18 years

A Gokwe man has been imprisoned for 18 years for killing his friend after a fight over a hat. Edmore Gambagamba (38) killed Nation Nyatsunga in Gokwe North in July 2008

Gambagamba said he stabbed Nyatsunga in the neck in a fit of rage after having been provoked by the deceased, who refused to return a hat he had borrowed. He asked for leniency saying he had compensated the deceased’s family for their loss and footed burial costs.

Justice Kamocha said the country would plunge into lawlessness if courts treated murderers with kid gloves.
