Duo Steals 375L Of Diesel And 7t Of Gold Ore

A duo has been arrested in Chiweshe after stealing 375 litres of diesel and seven (7) tonnes of gold ore from Rosa 10 Mine.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) say the duo, Tawanda Kedius Takaendesa (38) and Takesure Motsi (32) pounced on the mine at around 1930 hours local time on Friday. Reads the police statement on the case:

The suspects, together with one Lawrence Shereni, still at large, pounced at the mine while armed with an unidentified pistol and fired one shot on the ground before calling a group of unknown male adults to invade the mine. They allegedly vandalised floodlights at the mine and chased away the security guards before stealing 375 litres of diesel and seven tonnes of gold ore.

The security guards apprehended the two suspects, and the Police impounded a Mercedes Benz (AFK 8474) and a BMW (AFA 9417) they used in committing the offence.

Zimbabwe is reportedly losing millions of dollars through smuggling. 

Penhalonga, where artisanal miners and a company owned by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s ally, Scott Sakupwanya are extracting the metal, is one of the areas where leakages are said to be prevalent.

This is happening as the country has insufficient resources to fund its operations.
