Zanu PF MP Kenneth Musanhi’s Son in Hot Water for Attempted Murder of Estranged Wife

Tariro Musanhi, the son of Zanu PF MP and businessman Kenneth Musanhi, appeared in court and was charged with the attempted murder of his estranged wife. The Harare Magistrates Court heard that Tariro, 35, turned his Toyota D4D into a weapon and rammed into Margaret Samanyanga’s Honda Fit several times on the side and front while she sat inside. The incident took place on July 26. Musanhi also brandished a pistol, pointing it at Samanyanga while threatening to kill her.

Bail Granted

Musanhi was not asked to plead to charges of attempted murder and pointing a firearm when he appeared before Harare regional magistrate Feresi Chakanyuka. He was remanded to August 28 on US$500 bail, reported ZimLive. Tariro was ordered to report to the police every Monday and Friday as part of his bail conditions.

Enraged Musanhi Rammed His Vehicle Into Samanyanga’s Car

During the hearing, Ephraim Zinyandu, the prosecutor, stated that on July 26, Samanyanga parked her car near a Total service station at the corner of Mutare Road and Wilson Drive. Musanhi parked his Toyota D4D next to her Honda Fit and confronted her about their marital issues. Musanhi then became furious and repeatedly rammed his car into the Honda Fit’s side and front.

Threatened to Shoot Samanyanga

Zinyandu charged that Musanhi disembarked and produced an unidentified pistol, which he pointed at Samanyanga, threatening to shoot her. Samanyanga noticed the firearm and sped off from the scene. She reported the matter at ZRP Rhodesville, and Musanhi was arrested on July 28 at his workplace, AVM Africa, in Msasa.
