By A Correspondent-High Court judge Justice Hlekani Mwayera has sentenced a Chipinge security guard to 26 years for killing a client in a foiled robbery attempt.

Tinashe Mtisi (26) appeared before Justice Mwayera facing a murder charge.

He will now spend 26 years behind bars.

Mtisi was employed as a security guard at Caravan Park Lodge in Chipinge.

On December 29, 2019, at around 7:30 pm, the deceased, Kudakwashe Msindo, and his girlfriend Natalie Ann Freeman, who were on holiday in Zimbabwe from London, checked in at Caravan Lodge for a night.

Around 11 pm, Mtisi broke into their room through a window intending to steal but was intercepted by Msindo, who fought him.

But Mtisi strangled Msindo and escaped into the dark, leaving behind a piece of clothing that sold him out.

Msindo was pronounced dead upon admission to Chipinge District Hospital.
