Driver Appears in Court, Remanded in Custody as Investigation Proceeds
In an unrelated story, a driver accused of kidnapping 25 pupils from David Livingstone Primary School in Harare made his appearance in court over the weekend.
Driver Charged with Kidnapping
Samuel Honde (60) stood before Harare magistrate Mrs Letwin Rwodzi, facing charges of kidnapping. He has been remanded in custody until February 2, and the court has ordered a mental examination for Honde.
The Alleged Kidnapping Incident
On January 18, at approximately 1 pm, Honde picked up 25 learners from the school in a white Nissan Caravan minibus. Instead of taking them home to Kuwadzana Extension and nearby areas as agreed, he drove east along the Harare-Mutare Road without the consent of the children or their parents.
Reaching the 103km mark in Macheke, the vehicle ran out of fuel, forcing Honde to park it. A concerned passer-by noticed the presence of distressed children and suspected foul play. The individual promptly informed the local police in Macheke.
