Zim murder suspect arrested in Ireland


Ireland (New Ziana) – A Gweru car dealer who allegedly shot and killed three people in the city in 2021, and disappeared, has been arrested in Ireland on an unrelated matter.

Peter Dube allegedly shot and killed his second wife Nyasha Nharingo, her suspected lover Shelton Chinhango, and friend to the wife, Gamuchirai Mudungwe in a suspected case of infidelity.

After allegedly committing the crime, he escaped to South Africa, and then travelled on to Ireland under a false identity.

He had been on the run for the past two years.

Dube was on Wednesday arrested by Irish police, and appeared in court facing ‘unrelated, more minor, charges in the Republic.’

He was remanded in custody.

Local police had issued a red alert on Dube via Interpol and are now in contact with Irish authorities over his possible extradition back home to face the suspected murder charges.
