22 June 2018 :
Three armed robbers who targeted white commercial farmers in Mashonaland Central province, killing four of them, were sentenced to four death sentences each by High Court judge Justice Tawanda Chitapi.
Kiribon Jirimadenga, Richard John and Doesmatter Vhore were sent to the gallows after the court found them guilty of murder with actual intent.
Justice Chitapi said the manner in which the trio killed the commercial farmers indicated a well-orchestrated plan and determination on the part of the convicts, and as such, no other sentence would be proper besides death penalties.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has, however, indicated nobody will be hanged under his watch.
