Bulawayo Supermarket Robbed Of US$13 000

Bulawayo Supermarket Robbed Of US$13 000

Two armed robbers got away with over US$13 000 and R8 000 after they pounced on Hamara fruit and vegetable supermarket located along Fife street between 3rd and 4th avenue in Bulawayo.

The incident occurred around 9 AM on Monday 30 May 2022.

According to the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP), the total value of cash taken was US$ 13 242, R8 892, and ZWL$5 840.

ZRP spokesperson in Bulawayo Metropolitan Province, Inspector Abednico Ncube, said the two suspects entered the supermarket armed with pistols and ordered everyone to lie down on the ground.

He said the suspects grabbed an employee and pointed a gun at his head and demanded money.

The employee led the suspects to an office where they kept the money and ordered the safe to be opened. Said Inspector Ncube:

The complainant two complied and gave them cash amounting to over US$11000 plus over R6000 and over ZW$5000.

They proceeded to another office where there was a safe and ordered complainant two to open the safe and she complied and took US$210.

Insp Ncube said the suspects started kicking another employee on his belly, demanding keys to the manager’s safe.

Another employee was forced to open the safe but it was empty. Added Inspector Ncube:

The accused persons then went back to the tills where they collected more cash from the three tills amounting to US$1 150 and R2 000 and left the scene.

The employees later filed a report at ZRP, Bulawayo Central, and the police attended the scene.

Meanwhile, Inspector Ncube exhorted businesses not to keep large sums of money on their premises.

He also commended the four employees for complying with the armed robbers’ instructions as this prevented the loss of lives.

So no one outside the supermarket saw all this happening. They were only two gunmen and they must all have been inside the shop.
Offices are usually not in the open and all this office from office took time.
Kureva kuti vanhu havasi kufamba outside supermarkets ka?
Suspect!!

First suspects are one or more employees of this supermarket. Secondly, businesses keep daily takings amassed at business premises and at their homes because they do not trust banks.
