AN Epworth man was beaten to death for being suspected of stealing $27 from a patron at Cross Bar in the same neighbourhood.

The trio of Claphios Mano, Tendai Chademana and Tendai Kamudidi were not asked to plead to murder charges when they appeared before Harare Magistrate Tilda Mazhande.

Prosecuting Linda Gadzikwa strongly opposed bail prompting the magistrate to advise the three to apply for bail at the High Court.

It is the State's case that on April 17, at Cross Bar in Epworth the three accused persons were drinking beer and at about 2am, Kamudidi told Mano that his cash had been stolen from his pocket by the now deceased.

Chademana then shouted "Mbavha!!" pointing at the now deceased leading to him fleeing from the bar towards Chiremba Primary School.

The trio chased him and caught up with him then acting in common purpose, they undressed the now deceased, searching his clothes and they allegedly recovered the stolen cash from his pockets.

The trio was armed with sticks and a bicycle chain which they used to assault him all over the body and left him for dead.

The body of the deceased was found by James Sandaramu who was performing night watch duties at Chiremba Primary School.

The matter was remanded to May 3.
