Sikhumbuzo, who is son to Retired Brigadier General Ambrose Mutinhiri was granted US$300 bail on consent.

The state represented by Miss Junior Mugebe alleges that Sikhumbuzo Mutinhiri stole one heifer belonging to a Marondera farmer, Vengesayi Mutumwapavi of Karimba farm.

According to state papers, on the 28th of August this year, Tinashe Dera of Karimba farm discovered that there was a large herd of cattle missing.
