Police and Minister Kazembe ordered to pay $4.3 Million for the death of Kelvin Tinashe Choto. Choto, a young football player, was shot dead by a police officer near Makoni Shopping Centre in Chitungwiza in January 2019 during anti-government protests.

High Court judge Justice Edith Mushore has ordered Zimbabwe Republic Police Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga, Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe and Constable Rachid Siri to pay ZWL$4.3 million to the Choto family for the unlawful shooting of Kelvin Tinashe Choto in January 2019.

On Wednesday, 25 November 2020, Justice Mushore ruled that the Choto family is entitled to damages amounting to ZWL$4,3 million emanating from the shooting of the footballer. The Choto family was represented by Fiona Iliff of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR).

In a post on their social media pages, the ZLHR said out of the ZWL$4.3 million, ZWL$2 million is compensation for loss of support for Kelvin’s minor child Anenyasha Janelle Choto while ZWL$2 million is for loss of support for the widow Varaidzo Chiyanike.

The other ZWL$168 000 is for nervous shock and trauma for Chiyanike while ZWL$168 000 is for nervous shock and trauma for Julius Choto, who is Kelvin’s father.
