A Chitungwiza man, Shepherd Mushurwa (38) has appeared in court for allegedly beating his 12 year old son to death for stealing $20 that he had left in the house, and he was not asked to plead. Shepherd was remanded in custody to September 18. The state led by Norman Koropi alleged that on August 31 around 8pm, Mushurwa discovered that his $20 was missing from the bedroom where he had placed it. He then called his first born Prince and asked him about the money and he said he had not seen it. He asked Prince to call his other brother, Prosper, who was attending a church service. Upon arrival at the house, Mushurwa asked Prosper about the money and he confessed to have taken and used the money. Mushurwa started beating him until he died. Its so sad that the man lost his son because of $20. Cases of any forms of child abuse are increasing day by day and some of them are not even reported.
