A TRIAL date has been set for High Court judge Justice Garainesu Mawadze's son, Munyaradzi, who is being accused of murdering a cellphone dealer in 2020.

Munyaradzi, who is jointly charged with Elvin Dongo Saungweme and Dellon David Balani, appeared before Harare magistrate Yeukai Dzuda yesterday.

The trio, which face a charge of murdering Sipho Milton Ncube in March 2020, will face trial from September 26.

The alleged murder happened on March 12, 2020.

The three allegedly approached the now-deceased and lured him into their car, claiming they wanted to buy three cellphones. Ncube agreed and told them each phone cost US$1 800.

"The now-deceased agreed to accompany the trio to Waterfalls and the accused diverted route and drove along Chiremba Road passing Epworth going towards Ruwa," the court papers read.

Along the road, they reached a secluded place, where they robbed Ncube of his cellphones and an unknown amount of cash.

They also allegedly stabbed him with a knife before slitting open his throat, killing him instantly.

The three are said to have dumped Ncube's body in Ruwa.
