Five students at Nyameni High School in Marondera who went berserk and destroyed school property on two occasions, were on Monday arraigned before Marondera magistrate Jabulani Mzinyati facing charges of malicious damage to property.

The five, who are Form 4 students at the school, pleaded not guilty to the charges and will return to court on Friday for continuation of trial.

According to court papers, on October 5 last year, the students ganged up and destroyed water equipment.

On the second count, on October 10, the accused were dismissed for study leave, but refused to vacate the school premises.

They then allegedly ganged up and destroy a precast wall using stones.

The total value of the damaged property in the two incidents was pegged at $344.

Lovemore Musariyarwa represented the State.
