Former Bank Manager Shot, Robbed At His Home

Former Chinhoyi Standard Chartered Bank manager and Spring Valley Bar owner, David Patrick Chirenje, was shot in the back by three armed assailants at his Alaska home recently.

He was rushed to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals in Harare in a serious condition.

Mashonaland West acting provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Ian Kohwera, confirmed the incident.

He said Chirenje was confronted by three armed men who had barged into his bedroom through the kitchen door at around 7.30 PM.

The three armed robbers were armed with three pistols and two knives. Said Ass Insp Kohwera:

They were dressed in black jackets and blue work suits with reflectors and were putting on face masks.

He said they threatened Chirenje by pointing the pistols at him demanding money.

Ass Insp Kohwera said Chirenje initially resisted their demands and the robbers shot him in the back, and then he surrendered his gun cabinet keys.

The robbers opened the gun cabinet and took his FN Browning pistol and US$4 000 cash and disappeared into the night.

Chirenje’s son and wife reported the matter at Chinhoyi Rural Police Station. | H-Metro

Police always advise people against resisting to demands by robbers. This guy initially resisted only to give in after being shot ! Its now a double tragedy, life threatening injury and money gone. Whats the use of trying to save your money and lose your life!!

they did want to kill him they wanted to scare him into compliance hence the non lethal shots however blood loss is dangerous. you can't make a deadman talk.
