THE attempted murder trial, involving Sunningdale legislator Maureen Kademaunga, resumed in the capital yesterday with the second witness accusing her as the one who gave the order to have him and his colleagues assaulted.

Kademaunga appeared together with Ward 10 Councillor, Clayd Mashozhera, Noel Munhuwei and Daudi Jessub.

Prosecutor Heather Muokoto led evidence from Spencer Mudarikwa who said he knew Kademaunga and her accomplices very well, prior the commission of the offence.

He told the court that on the fateful day, he was distributing food to election agents in the Sunningdale  community after voting had been delayed.

He said that as they approached Metro Peach, Kademaunga and her accomplices were following them and when they stopped to see what was happening, one of the cars blocked them in front, while its occupants disembarked.

Kademaunga allegedly then shouted that Mudarikwa and his friends had to be assaulted for supporting ZANU PF.

Mudarikwa told the court that they went on to heavily assault him using an axe and an iron bar, and he is till undergoing treatment.

It is the State’s case that during the assault, Kademaunga disembarked and cheered on the assailants.

The gang allegedly set the Toyota Spacious, belonging to the complainants on fire and fled.

The trio was assisted by Good Samaritans who ferried them to the hospital.

The quartet has pleaded not guilty to the offences of attempted murder and malicious damage to property.
