Headlands businessman John Madondo, has been acquitted of charges related to an alleged attempted murder for rituals scandal.

The case which took a dramatic twist during the trial of Tatenda Mudziwedare (20) from Village 5B, Sherenje.

Mudziwedare, who initially pleaded guilty to attempting to murder a seven-year-old Grade One learner, allegedly on instructions from Madondo, stood trial before Rusape regional magistrate Mr. Francis Mapfumo.

The charges stemmed from accusations that Mudziwedare had been hired by Madondo to procure a human head for ritual purposes, a claim that rocked the small town of Headlands.

The legal proceedings were conducted under the purview of Section 187 as read with Section 47 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act, which specifically addresses attempts to cause harm or death to another individual.

Mudziwedare’s admission of guilt placed a significant spotlight on Madondo, raising questions about his involvement in the alleged crime.

Mudziwedare reportedly confessed to carrying out the act under instructions from Madondo, who allegedly sought a human head for ritual purposes.
