Kombi owner urinates through a tube for three weeks following assault by 6 police officers
Six police officers appeared before Bulawayo Magistrate Ms Charity Maphosa for allegedly brutally assaulting a commuter omnibus owner, Malvin Ncube (26), while he was handcuffed after accusing him of touting at Egodini bus terminus in Bulawayo.
Prichard Moyo (27), Fortune Phiri (28), Jonathan Musonga (37), Stafford Ncube (26), Collen Sibanda (25) and Melody Ncube (29), who are all stationed at Bulawayo Central Police and are attached to the Crime Protection Unit (CPU), were not asked to plead to an assault charge when they appeared in court on Saturday and were remanded them out of custody to January 25.
Prosecuting, Mr Jeremiah Mutsindikwa said the police officers arrested Ncube at Egodini terminus at around 10AM sometime in May last year. They allegedly handcuffed him and led him to Bulawayo Central Police Station where they put an iron rod between his elbows and below his knees and started assaulting him several times with a sjambok. He was attacked on the buttocks and private parts with a sjambok while his mouth was stuffed with his t-shirt. He had to urinate through a tube for three weeks following the assault.
