Moyo appeared before magistrate Letwin Rwodzi facing charges of assaulting Ngonidzashe Gwatswaire and Leslie Madovi at Lot 4a, Plot 15 in Sherwood Block, Kwekwe, following a dispute over ownership of the piece of land. The piece of land was allocated to his late father under the land reform programme.
