Tapiwa Makore's Killer To Be Sentenced Today
The man convicted of killing seven-year-old Tapiwa Makore in September 2020, will be sentenced today (Wednesday) by the High Court.
Last month High Court judge Munamato Mutevedzi found Tafadzwa Shamba guilty of the murder of Tapiwa.
The boy’s uncle and namesake Tapiwa Makore, was found guilty of being an accomplice after he provided his house for the commissioning of the crime.
The court found insufficient evidence to convict Tapiwa Makore Senior of the murder itself.
Shamba confessed to the murder and this statement was confirmed by a magistrate and accepted by the High Court.
