A RUSAPE centenarian is facing murder charge for fatally shooting villagers whom he accused of ploughing on a path leading to his family grave yard.

Chitanga Mukoka aged 101 confronted Sylvester Mutanga (33) over the matter.

According to Newsday tempers flared and young Mutanga continued with his ploughing.

That angers Mukoka who was armed with a 303 assault rifle and shot Mutanga on both legs from about seven metres.

"It is unfortunate that no one saw the deceased when he was shot and the accused had to walk a distance of around 4 km to the police station. If he had received first aid he could have survived," the paper said.

Mukoka is currently in remand prison.
