Edward Nhemachena, 68, who resides in Chademunhu farm in Masvingo has appeared before Magistrate Collet Ncube, facing a culpable homicide charge.
The complainant is Elizabeth Zvokuwomba, 26, who resides at Druton farm, and is the mother of the deceased Praise Mavhiringidze, 6, on November 17, 2014. The boy was on his way to school when 7 DOGS attacked and killed him.
The dogs ate his scalp, back of his neck and both lower and upper limbs.
Two witnesses who were looking for their cattle saw the dogs feeding on the body of the child. Another witness told the court that the dogs ran away and they went to search for a homestead that had dogs and they found them at Nhemachena's place.
The case will continue on September 28, 2016, as the court will call the Zimbabwe Republic Police investigating officer and the medical doctor as witnesses.
