Pardon Ndoro (29) was not asked to plead when he appeared before magistrate Victoria Mashamba who remanded him to June 25 on $100 bail.

It is the State’s case that on June 2, Hechang Jie a contractor seconded to the Harare City Council was digging a trench at the intersection of Nelson Mandela Avenue and Julius Nyerere Way with his employees.

Ndoro allegedly stopped by and accused Jie of taking away a job reserved for locals.

It is alleged an altercation ensued between Ndoro and Jie’s workmate Dereck Mukuya.

Ndoro briefly left the scene and allegedly came back in the company of other men and charged towards the complainants. In the ensuing melee, the accused allegedly damaged the windscreens for Pamela Bvuta, Debina Mangwiro and Luckboy Vhudzi’s parked vehicles.

Mukuya allegedly sustained back injuries, while Jie lost two generators, a water pump and $500 cash.

The complainants reported the matter to the police, leading to Ndoro’s arrest.

Linda Gadzikwa appeared for the State.

  1. Comment…this idiot was supposed to be remanded in custody, he is a danger to the society. When the same thing happens to fellow Zimbabweans in the Diaspora we started to cry foul. The problem is some of our people do not understand these twinning projects.

    This xenophobic good-for-nothing MDC hoodlum must be punished severely.

  3. As much as i dont condone violence in handlling such matters, jobs reserved for locals must be given to locals, does it mean we dont have local contractors who can dig up trenches here in Harare? there is over 90% unemployment and yet foreigners are capitalising on menial jobs and contracts here. Please gvt let it be clear what foreigners can work on and what we locals can have access too otherwise we will soon have chinese doing misika too if there is no laws to protect local people’s jobs and projects.Xeno is bad but it all comes from foreigners invading other people’s countries and taking over their employment spaces till locals are not happy and react badly. There should always be boundaries that protect locals and at the same time foreigners should also be protected by being restricted to specific areas of investments, work or employment.
