The court heard that Tawanda approached Munashe Razawo, who was also isolated at Prince Edward School and stabbed him in the stomach several times following a misunderstanding. Ruzawo was rushed to the hospital.
The Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare said the other three allegedly broke into the housemaster’s house, stole valuables from student lockers in the hostels and also tried to steal from teachers’ cars.
