Former CID officer turned KILLER Jaison Muvhevhi in PICTURES

The police have successfully applied to detain, for a further 48 hours, Jaison Muvhevhi, the gun-toting former CID officer who went on the run after shooting dead a senior police officer, an apostolic sect Madzibaba and a barman in Wedza last Friday.

Muvhevhi was brought to court on Wednesday and appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi.

The shooting spree on Friday saw the gold dealing former cop killing three people and another police officer is fighting for his life in a hospital.

In requesting his further detention, Investigating officer, Pikisai Chipwazo, took to the witness stand in support of the application.

“I confirm that it is an accused person’s right to be brought before a court within 48 hours and that right can only be ordered by the court.

“Accused was arrested in Mozambique and was deported to Zimbabwe on Tuesday at around midday and rearrested at the border.

“I need time to interview the accused so that he can give his side of the story and to take him to Wedza where he is supposed to make some indications.

“I undertake to bring him to court as soon as I am done,” he said.

The lawyer defending Muvhevhi is however not happy about the application, stating before the court that the investigating officer should have recorded statements from the accused when he arrived on Tuesday night.

“We are worried that the State is trying to solicit for confessions from the accused and it is surprising that the State is saying that they can only craft the charge after the indications hence our question would be why arrest him in the first place.

“This scenario is precisely for the reason that there’s a Form 242 mechanism that allows them to place him on remand, especially after interviewing the accused person as well as interviewing possible State witnesses and viewing the scene.

“This process doesn’t warrant further detention of the accused in police custody. The investigating officer said he needs a day to compile Form 242.

“I would move that Form 242 be crafted in a day and he be brought for placement on remand and placed in the custody of the ZPCS and when they need him for any other interview or indications, that would be done by requesting him from the prisons officials,” the lawyer said.
