Three Zimbabwe men accused of murdering their wheelchair-bound South African employer and burning his body will be extradited to face justice in South Africa, a state newspaper says.

Pfigamani Perfect Muleya, Jeffrey Mpofu and Owen Gumbo were arrested after they escaped back to Zimbabwe, said the state-run Chronicle.

The trio allegedly hit 41-year-old Randburg resident Graeme Shellerd on the head with a blunt object on June 4, 2016. Shellerd, a paraplegic, is said to have died on the spot. The trio then allegedly assaulted his girlfriend Leigh Champman and left her for dead.

Body set alight

"The trio allegedly dragged Mr Shellerd's body into a garage and set it alight," said the Chronicle. It said the trio then ransacked the couple's house "before stealing 900,000 rand which they shared equally".

Chapman managed to escape and make a report to police.

Zimbabwe Home Affairs Minister Obert Mpofu agreed to a request by South Africa’s Home Affairs Department for the men to be extradited to face charges of murder, attempted murder, robbery and arson, the Chronicle said.

In May, Zimbabwe's High Court ordered that two men from the cane-growing town of Chiredzi should be extradited to South Africa to face charges of murdering and robbing their Limpopo Province employer, also in June 2016.

Online news site New Zimbabwe reported that the two, Simbarashe Charuma and Prince Chindawande had been employed in South Africa as security guards.
