Gardener Fined $20 000 After His Boss’ Two Pitbulls Maul Neighbour’s Grandson (7)
A Chinhoyi gardener was fined $20 000 after he let his boss’ dogs, which mauled a neighbour’s seven-year-old grandson, out of the yard.
Following the attack, the boy suffered permanent disability.
Stanley Mwale, 42, of 10776 Mapako Phase 2 pleaded guilty when he appeared before Chinhoyi provincial magistrate Tapiwa Banda last Friday charged with releasing the two pit bull terrier dogs, which are banned canine breeds in the country.
Failure to deposit the $20 000 to the Clerk of Court will see Mwale spend 30 days in prison, New Zimbabwe reports.
Prosecuting, Tinoziva Chipupuri told the court that on 17 June this year, at around 11am, the boy, Samuel Phineas, ran towards the main gate at a house where Mwale works after a misunderstanding with his grandfather, Richard Zulu, over allegedly stealing some biscuits at a nearby market.
Mwale heard Samuel crying and opened the gate trying to establish what was happening.
The State proved that this was when the vicious dogs charged towards the boy before biting him on the forehead, upper lip and on both legs.
Mwale tried to restrain the dogs from further attacking Samuel, but was overpowered until his workmate Ackim Moenda ran to the scene and managed to fend off the marauding canines.
The minor sustained serious injuries and was rushed to Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital where he underwent facial reconstruction.
In other news, iHarare had reported that a soldier with the elite Presidential Guard Infantry Ballation reportedly fled with a bullet lodged in his rib cage after he was shot by Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officers during an armed robbery shootout.
This comes after he and his co-accused robbed Chitungwiza fuel service station of cash, a firearm, and other valuables.
The soldier, Arnold Matetepa (38), was arrested last week as he sought medical treatment at a health centre in Harare and was brought to court on Saturday facing armed robbery charges.
