Zimbabwe: Gun Totting Teen Still On Remand

The case of two Harare teenagers who allegedly ambushed and opened fire at six cars on separate occasions in one night while wearing camouflage has been referred back to the remand court after their trial failed to begin on Monday.

Taylor Cameron (19) and his 17-year-old friend are facing 10 counts of attempted murder.

They allegedly armed themselves with two rifles and wore camouflage jackets before allegedly firing at motorists in Avondale.

The case was referred back to remand court after prosecutor Mr Allan Goche told the court that the State was not ready.

Mr Goche also indicated he had not received the docket from the police. Mr Chris Mhike of Atherstone and Cook, who is representing Cameron and his friend, argued that the matter was taking too long to be finalised.

"Your worship we are obviously disappointed with the delay as this is prolonging the anxiety of these two school children who have had to miss school repeatedly as a result of these delays," he said.
