Armed suspects rob Mudzi family


MARONDERA- Two armed robbers recently pounced on a Mudzi family and got
away with US$10 000 cash.
A report by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) shows that the robbers attacked
the family in Machipisa Village, Chief Nechombo in Mudzi armed with a pistol on
November 9.
“Police in Mutoko are investigating a case of robbery which occurred on 09/11/23 at
a homestead at Machipisa Village, Nechombo, Mudzi.
“Two unknown suspects armed with a suspected pistol and a stone attacked the
complainant before stealing two cellphones, two helmets and US$10 649.00 cash.
The stolen cellphones and helmets were recovered dumped in the yard.
“The police in Mutoko are appealing to anyone who has any information about the
incident to report it to the nearest police station,” read the police report.
Authorities often advise individuals and companies alike not to keep large amounts
of money at home to reduce the risk of being robbed.
In Zimbabwe, there has been a rise in armed robberies targeting families,
individuals, and or businesses over the past four years. As a response to
this,President Mnangagwa has granted amnesty to individuals who voluntarily
surrender illegally owned firearms.
The measure taken is meant to help reduce crime and improve safety in the country.
