I'm very proud of the people , they're now taking the law into their own hands which is a good thing because the police can't be trusted anymore. If they had left the matter to the police , mapurisa would have found the thief , steal the phones and sell it before sharing the money just like they did with that woman

well done vanhu vekuNorton , maita zvakanaka , mapurisa ndiwo mbavha dzacho

ZanuPf Republic Police cant be trusted , come 2023 we'll vote you out

If everyone who steals anything has to be killed, then Zimbabwe would have less than 1000 people by now.

Mob justice seems to be taking root in Zimbabwe
Last week it was 2 policemen in Aspindale, and now a thief in Norton. Two things come to mind. People are fed up of police inaction/complicity in crime and are taking the law into their own hands. Secondly instant justice is fueled by economic downturn that anyone crossing the ethics Rubicon is bound to be at the receiving end of people's frustrations.

Either way, the government has failed the people.

Indeed I agree with u. Crime of any nature is everywhere but remotely scarce in countries like Singapore,UAE, Switzerland to name just a few. Nevertheless the trend of robberies in this country is symptomatic of a country in decline in morals and socially. Where the police are no longer trustworthy. The army is on the rampage. Security guards have gone amok. Ministers are converting public property into personal use. Scott is plundering our gold. The terrible twins are looting left and right. The mother is on the rampage accosting customs and immigration officers. The father is bullish and bearish with Belarusian thieves. The country is on free fall.As one Minister is now self designated as a debt collector.

@ Machiavelli, ithink you are streaching it a bit, even in so called democratic and developed countries, thieves are there, crime sometimes has nothing to do with good or bad governance

This is a classic example of a numb skull of the likes of Machiavelli who think violence is justice. Yes it could be economical reasons for his actions which is always the case, but then to have people like Machiavelli who claim to be Democrats to support violence is pitiful.

Nowhere have I supported violence or mob justice. Read carefully. All I was doing was analysing the root cause of mob justice. The root cause being maladministration by the incumbent government.

There are of course cases that calls for mob justice like cattle rustling, vandalism of community utilities like electric cables and pick pocketing
