Mugabe neighbour arrested in row over roaming dogs

20 June 2014, 15:52

Harare - A neighbour of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe has appeared in court on charges of allowing his dogs to roam on the 90-year old president's private residence, state media reported on Friday.

"President Mugabe's 55-year old neighbour appeared in court yesterday [Thursday] on allegations of setting his dogs to hunt buck at the president's private residence in Borrowdale," state-owned The Herald newspaper reported.

The paper said Michael Pazarangu was charged for "letting his unmuzzled ferocious dogs roam freely" which strayed into Mugabe's property and killed a buck.

Pazarangu pleaded not guilty and was given free bail by the magistrate's court. He is set for a 24 June trial, the paper said.

Mugabe owns a private house in the plush Borrowdale suburb on the outskirts of the capital Harare.

Early this year, it was the venue of his daughter's elaborate wedding attended by 4 000 guests.
