Muvevi’s Mental Examination Report Still Pending4 months ago
Murder-accused former Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officer, Jaison Muvevi on Wednesday virtually appeared at the court for his routine remand before Harare provincial magistrate Dennis Mangosi.
He is facing four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.
The Herald reported that Muvevi recently through his lawyer Blessed Matandira claimed that he was mentally unstable and needed to be taken to a psychiatrist for a mental examination.
In his application, which was granted by Mangosi, Matandira said Muvevi was incoherent and exhibited some mental problems during their engagements.
The outcome of the mental examination is still pending.
