THERE was drama at Chitungwiza Magistrates’ Court yesterday when Plaxedes Mashasha, who is being accused of staying with her husband’s corpse for days, arrived carrying a bag with her son’s nails.
Gogo Mashasha pleaded with police officers to be excused to relieve herself.
Suspecting she could hurt herself, a policewoman was ordered to follow Gogo Mashasha to the toilet.
She said she found her taking out nails, belonging to her son, Grant, from her handbag.
“She panicked when I entered the toilet and found her holding the nails.
“Hanzi inzara dzakachekwa pamwana wangu Grant dzandirikurongedza.
“I asked her if the nails were necessary and she surrendered them to me,” the officer told a senior cop.
Gogo Mashasha, an ardent Johanne Masowe yeNyenyedzi Nomwe follower, appeared unsettled by the number of people who gathered to follow her case.
