Seven suspects attacked the Pidmond farm in Matepatepa on Tuesday to steal copper wires, according to prosecutor Carson Kundiona, who spoke before the court.

When the ZESA transformer was being disassembled, a watchful guard, Isaac Kurasamoyo, heard a disturbance and notified other residents, who were able to apprehend the six while David Kamutiti managed to flee.
