2 Soldiers Arrested Over Hatfield House Robbery, Murder

2 Soldiers Arrested Over Hatfield House Robbery, Murder

Police in Harare on Sunday night arrested two soldiers in connection with an armed robbery and murder that occurred in Hatfield suburb on 24 December.

The soldiers have been identified as Lameck Kabara from the Zimbabwe National Defence College and Christopher Charuma, who is with the Air Force of Zimbabwe based at Manyame airbase. They are due to appear in court on Tuesday.

Police are also holding a third suspect, Perseverence Chihota, a civilian.

The suspects took away US$40 000 from the Hatfield house and also shot dead Elvis Chijaka and wounded Brian Chijaka.

According to the Police, Chijaka was shot dead while responding to a call for help by his sister who had been attacked by the suspects who were wearing balaclavas and armed with an AK47 rifle at their gate.

Brian is being treated for his wounds at a Harare hospital.

The robbers drove off in a white Mercedes Benz Compressor C200 registration number AEW 7940 after ransacking the house and stealing US$40 000 cash and two iPhone cellphones.

Police recovered 16 spent cartridges, one live round for a suspected AK47 rifle and 2×7,65 mm spent cartridges on the scene.

Hatfield is not far from Chadcombe, where Joseph Nemaisa, a retired police detective shot and killed three armed robbers, among them two soldiers, at his house earlier this month.

The armed robbers, who also wore balaclavas, barged into Nemaisa’s house and held his family hostage, demanding cash. He shot three dead through a window, while two that escaped were later arrested.

A few months ago before these roberies were amock, though they had started, a report once surfaced that Army Comanders called some members of the Army for a meeting at the same DEFENCE COLLEGE.

After the meeting the bosses are allegedly said to have asked for some contributions from the attendees. one or a few group is said to have asked tge Seniors : ko why imimi nema politicians muri kudya mari isu tichi kwangwaya, what are you as our bosses, the minister & gvt as a whole doing to, improve our standars since makati tisa enda pama strike tikarega, suppress them,tichiita when is our rewards & arrest of mbavhas going to happen"

i remember social media yaka zara neresponse yeleadership __ those members where ordered to go for re-trainings. sandizvo hr zvakambo buda mumedia??

and now all these armed robbers akunzi

1- maserving members of the security sector
2- here and there AK-rifles are being used pane security company,hr ine authority to own such a rifle?
3- balaclavas throughout zvakuita kunge a code inobva yazikanwa nasomeone kuti ma-boys angu nhasi arova
4- why are all these gangs a grp of btwn 5&7 pple?
5- why these grps dziri kusanganisira AirForce1, Former Support1/2, CID 2, & ZNA 2.

Pliz YOUR EXCELLENCY MR PRESIDENT, something is happenning and being actually comanded by High Ranking Officials,

Excellent observations. The problem is nobody will respond to these quiries, asi dayi wati Nelson Chamisa ari kuinda ku Chinhoyi to donate to the less privileged, the whole province will be flooded with security personnel to thwart the gesture.

Living wage ndomboma. Also, army now in lacking discipline training yaivapo during time yana Chiwenga kare.
Masoja havabvumidzwi ka kuita mademonstration nekuita mastrike. These guys are actually send to beat up vanhu vanenge vachichemera living wages asi ivo vasiri kugutawo.
Tichati KAKEI navo vanhu ivava. House on Fire. Mdhara Valerio muripi, Chiwenga ndiye aizvigona.
Zimbabwe becoming worse than SA and mari dzacho dzikubiwa so unoshaya kuti muZimbabwe here muri kunzi mukutamburwa.
Responsible authority ummm itai basa before campaigns fully begin because in the midst of this confusion, a lot of people may lose lives zvichingonzi armed robbers.

What is really happening to our security forces???.

Instead of security our nation, they're robbing us.

What can we do to avoid these robberies??

Please help me

Our Zimbabwe is in shambles with it's soldiers and police forces

Some are day light robbers and some are murders.

They are the fully trained people who rob us, how are going to fight them
