ED: I'm Concerned About Rising Cases Of Armed Robberies, Ritual Murders

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said he is concerned about the rising cases of armed robberies and ritual murders in Zimbabwe.

He made the remarks at the National Heroes Acre in Harare this Thursday where he presided over the burial of Retired Major General Godfrey Chanakira who died end of last month.

He was the Permanent Secretary in Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s Office.

Consoling the Chanakira family at the Heroes Acre, he said; “On behalf of the revolutionary Party, ZANU PF, Government and indeed on my own behalf, I express my sincere condolences to the Chanakira family, to his wife and children, for the loss of a beloved husband and father.”

Turning to the rising cases of crime in the country, the president said:

I am, however, concerned about the rising cases of armed robberies and ritual murders occurring in our country. I, thus, exhort stakeholders in the criminal justice to speedily deal with these emerging negative trends. Equally worrisome are road traffic accidents on our highways.

Mnangagwa’s remarks come amid reports that some of the assailants are serving or retired members of the uniformed forces.

Parliament, earlier this year summoned security chiefs over the spike in robbery cases.

Anyone in his/her right mind should be equally concerned.
These robbers are just stories when they strike elsewhere, the day they strike on you or on your loved one, you'll agree with the president's concern.

With due respect the greatest armed robbery took place in November 2017. I have been waiting for someone to point this out but we seem to be com concentrating on minor robberies without pointing out the Great Armed Robbers of 2017

Actually the headline should read, "president concerned about the number of uniformed forces doing armed robberies".

What a concerned president he is, what about the murdering of the economy being done by Mthuli whilst he is practising vodoo economics??, what about the armed robberies being commited by Mangudya ?, he is commiting robbery by saying we use the RTGS currency instead of the US$ Peoples lives, wages, pensions ,savings etc have been robbed by him, the president should be equally worried about this.

There are no jobs His Excellency Advocate President ED MNANGAGWA. Most of the armed robberies the President is worried about are committed by serving or former members of security agents. Bobbers are looking for money to make ends meet.

He can't talk about the economy because he will decampain himself. He has destroyed the economy so there is nothing he can say.
