A HARARE policeman who was nabbed and dragged to court for stabbing his step daughter was yesterday issued with a warrant of arrest after it was established that he is on the run.
Harare provincial magistrate Learnmore Mapiye granted the State’s application to have Mose Nigel Jalasi on a warrant after he failed to report at the police as stipulated in his bail conditions.
Jalasi, who was denied bail on his initial appearance, was granted bail at the High Court and was ordered to report once every Friday at ZRP Marimba.
In applying for the warrant of arrest, the State led evidence from the investigating officer Anele Mkandla who told that court that Jalasi never reported from the time he was granted bail and produced an affidavit from the Officer in Charge ZRP Marimba as well as the ‘Persons Reporting to Police’ document which Jalasi was supposed to sign whenever he reported.
Jalasi is accused of raping and later murdering his teenage step daughter.
Jalasi is also facing indecent assault charges where it is alleged that he, together with an alleged accomplice, drugged and sodomised a young man.
