Caps United skipper Method Mwanjali who is charged with attempted murder was today granted $100 bail by Justice David Mangota at the High Court.

The State did not oppose bail. The footballer was arrested on Sunday on allegations of stabbing Tonderai Nhunzvi and was sent to remand prison on Tuesday while teammate Archford Gutu, who was with him when the alleged offence was committed, was freed on bail by the magistrates’ court.

Mwanjali’s first bid for freedom fell on the technicality that he was detained for more than 48 hours faltered and he was remanded in custody until May 4. 

It is alleged Mwanjali and Gutu had an altercation with Nhunzvi and three other men who were in the company of the complainant. Gutu is accused of smashing the rear windscreen of Nhunzvi’s vehicle, which triggered a physical confrontation.

It is then that Mwanjali is alleged to have produced a knife from their car which he used to stad Nhunzvi twice in the abdomen.
