A Chinhoyi man is seeking justice over the Darwendale shootout that occurred in  November last year, where he survived two bullets on both legs.

Tafadzwa Mushamba (37) was caught by Zimparks rangers and police officers hunting in the company of Kurt Leeroy Rahman, Phillip Mwamuka and the owner of the farm Magatsi with all required papers on the 19th November 2020.

"Our papers were in order so we went hunting from 10 pm to 2 am and on our way back as we drew closer to Magatsi's homestead we were saddened by gunshots 4 of them at Rahman and two on my both legs," Mushamba said.

He added that the police officers who shot them from Darwendale were four and they came upon invitation from the neighbouring farms who thought they were invaded by poachers when they had them hunting.

Speaking to Mashamba said he wants justice and compensation of what he went through when they were carrying out legit hunting.

"The case was heard at Chinhoyi Magistrates courts and l was acquitted and l have tried through my lawyers to get judgement to no avail and all documents under case number 2911/2018 and p-p-g number B-A 366/2019 are nowhere to be found and this is frustrating my efforts to seek justice".

Efforts to get comments from police, Zimparks and Judicia service commission were fruitless as no one seemed to know the case.
