TEMPLEMAN TO STAND TRIAL
25 May 2018
The trial date for Star FM’s top DJ Godfather Templeman has been set to May 28 for the kidnapping charges he is facing.
The prominent music promoter whose real name is Simbarashe Maphosa pleaded not guilty before Harare magistrate Tilda Mazhande.
It is the State case that in March this year, Maphosa kidnapped a 16-year-old girl and took her to Beitbridge for a whole weekend without her or her parents’ consent.
The State is also alleging that Maphosa exposed the juvenile to drugs and alcohol during their stay in Beitbridge.
Linda Gadzikwa represented the State.
