The accused, Victor Musanjeya and Takudzwa Chinyanga, were not asked to plead when they appeared before Mutare magistrate Perseverence Makala.

The court heard that on April 1 this year, the accused broke into Nyamanhindi’s vehicle parked at his business premises and stole a loaded 9mm Beretta pistol.

Police later used a CCTV video footage recorded at the scene to arrest the accused.

The pistol was allegedly recovered at Courtyald Theatre in Mutare.
