A Plumtree-based policeman is in trouble after allegedly tipping an armed robbery and attempted murder suspect to flee as law enforcement agents were closing in on him.
Kudzai Hativagone appeared before magistrate Joshua Nembaware last week facing charges of defeating the course of justice and pleaded not guilty.
He pleaded not guilty to defeating the course of justice charge.
Prosecutors said on August 8 this year, Criminal Investigations Department homicide officers were looking for Simelweyinkosi Dube in connection with armed robbery and attempted murder cases.
Hativagone, an alleged friend to Dube, allegedly alerted him that the police was looking for him and advised him to flee from Plumtree.
The police picked up Hatigone's shenanigans and arrested him.
The matter is still pending at the courts.
