The family of Tawanda “MaPecca” Moyo (43), a former member of Siyaya Arts group, who died after being shot by his wife’s lover is demanding justice.
Bulawayo businessman Mr Oricious Moyo (38) of Emganwini suburb shot Moyo when he confronted him while he was “relaxing” with his wife, Jacqueline Chesigelenaso Moyo, in a car.
A spokesperson for the Moyo family, Mr Roderick Moyo, told the Chronicle that : “ We hope those in authority judge the matter with fairness, without fear or favour. Even the poor deserve justice and we are demanding that the law takes its course.
Oricious referred questions to his lawyer, Mr Zibusiso Ncube of Ncube and Partners, who said: “When one has died, he has died, what do you expect me to say? Of course we express our condolences and we are giving the family time to mourn their relative. Really there’s nothing to say. I commented earlier on the shooting, and yes now he has died, what do you want me to say now?
“It is sad he has died and we are with his family at this hard time and we will remember them in our prayers.”
Oricious alleges that he shot MaPecca after he had tried to rob him. MaPecca is said to have suspected his wife of having an affair and decided to investigate.
