Court finds Pondo guilty of murder

The verdict was a warning to others that violent behavior will not be tolerated.
Justice Mungwari’s verdict
According to Herald, “The savagery and barbarism of the attack was unmitigated, and the accused gave the deceased no chance for survival,” said Justice Mungwari. “The accused was determined to kill the deceased and did not take heed of his companion’s pleas to desist from his aggression towards a defenseless geriatric.”
Medical evidence seals Pondo’s fate
According to medical evidence, Pondo caused Mandibvira’s death. Mandibvira suffered head trauma and brain damage, which was confirmed by witnesses. The evidence showed that Pondo‘s actions caused the injuries that led to Mandibvira’s death. This was a crucial piece of information in the trial and helped the court to make a decision.
