Mujuru inquest ends…


The three-week-long inquest into the mysterious death of Zimbabwes most decorated army commander, Retired General Solomon Mujuru, is expected to end today with the evidence of two forensic pathologists likely to shed light on the cause of his death, NewsDay can reveal.

Impeccable sources said local forensic pathologist, Gabriel Alvero, was yesterday cleared by his Cuban government to testify in the high-profile inquest held at the Harare Magistrates Court.

Another South Africa-based forensic pathologist, Reggie Perumal, who was invited by Gen Mujurus widow, Vice-President Joice Mujuru, to assist in clarifying issues through family lawyer Thakor Kewada, is expected to be the last witness to testify in the hearing.

The inquest has witnessed a record 34 witnesses giving evidence to clarify issues on the possible cause of death of the General at his Alamein Farm in Beatrice on August 16 last year.

Perumal will be the fourth South African expert to testify after other forensic analysts.

Zimbabwes own forensic experts gave their evidence which regional magistrate Walter Chikwanha, will analyse and give a determination on the way forward as the case closes.
