GWERU – A 27-year-old woman was allegedly robbed by a pirate taxi driver she had hired to
transport her from town to Mkoba.
The woman, believed to have been coming from South Africa, was robbed of US$930, R1 100 and
other valuables on June 15 around 6:30pm in Mkoba.
The woman is said to have boarded a grey Honda Fit with only the driver on board at Zuva Service
Station along Lobengula Avenue, Gweru, on her way home.

On reaching Takwirira Primary School in Mkoba 17, the driver stopped the car and attacked the
woman with a stick and ordered her to surrender all her valuables while threatening to kill her.
He took a Samsung A3 cellphone, a Black Nokia cellphone, two bags containing clothes, groceries
and the money and ordered her to disembark before driving away.
