Chikore today appeared in court intending to apply for refusal of further remand but this was thrown out after the prosecution furnished him with a trial date.

He will be jointly charged with his alleged accomplice, Simbarashe Mutimbe.

Harare provincial magistrate Mr Elisha Singano granted a request by the State to marry the dockets of the two for the purposes of trial.
