A High Court judge deferred to Friday Thanks Makore’s bail ruling.

Thanks is the alleged brains behind the ritual murder of seven year-old Murewa boy, Tapuwa Makore.

The judgment was initially set for Monday.

Justice Tawanda Chitapi, said his decision will only be ready on the December 18 owing to the influx of matters at the appeals court.

Makore, 56, was seeking bail pending his trial at the magistrate’s court.

According to Makore’s lawyer, the State has no case against his client who should be exonerated from the three other suspects Makore Snr, Tafadzwa Shamba and Maud Hunidzarira.

However, the State alleges that Makore was responsible for plotting the ritual murder before conniving with his little brother Makore Snr and Tafadzwa Shamba and Maud Hunidzarira.

Further allegations are that, Makore offered US$1 500 for the job before allegedly receiving the head and arms of the deceased.

The family of the late Tapiwa Makore who recently demanded DNA results from his collected samples attended the Monday hearing.
