Jaison Muvhevhi Tried To Kill Other People
Before his arrest, Muvhevhi attempted to murder Raphael Nyahwema at Mutare Boys High on January 13, 2022, according to a Police memo from the Manicaland province.
Muvhevhi then traveled to ward 11 Mutasa, south constituency of Mutare Boys High School, where he approached the residential quarters of the ancillary staff. There, he encountered a woman named Zvikomborero Mangworwa, age 23, who had just emerged from the bathroom.
Mangorwa signaled that she was alone, at which point Muvhevhi took out US$10 and told her to buy a chicken and make him some food. A drunken Raphael Nyahwema, the Mutare Boys High School caretaker, arrived unexpectedly and demanded Muvhevhi explain his appearance.
Nyahwema’s interruption infuriated Muvhevhi, who pulled out his holstered pistol and fired three shots at Nyahwema, who was within ten meters of him. When he saw the gun being pulled back, the target sprinted for his life and was missed by all three shots
