Hurungwe Farmer Stumbles Upon Russian-made Grenade Launchers

Hurungwe Farmer Stumbles Upon Russian-made Grenade Launchers

A Hurungwe farmer discovered Rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launchers while preparing his field for winter cropping on Thursday.

The farmer, Munyaradzi Zvarirerwa (22), under Chief Nyamhunga, alerted the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) who responded to the report.

ZRP national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the development. He said:

Four RPG7 rockets were found in one Munyaradzi Zvarirerwa’s field under Chief Nyamhunga in Hurungwe and he reported the discovery to the police upon coming across them in his field.

All necessary processes are being done so that everything that needs to be done is done.

According to an online source, an RPG is a shoulder-fired, anti-tank weapon system that fires rockets equipped with an explosive warhead.

The RPG was first produced as an anti-armour weapon in the early 1960s in the then Soviet Union (Russia).

“RPGs” abbreviation comes from the Russian phrase for “hand-held anti-tank grenade-launcher”: Ruchnoi Protivotankovye Granatamyot.

very poor reporting. shld have stated kuti ne extent of rusting, and the model, are they likely to be from the liberation war? or they are recently stashed. We don't want people panicking kuti mavanehondo mu zimbabwe

If army engineers delay attending animals may be injured or killed. The Kariba/Salisbury passenger plane with slightly above a 100 passengers was shot and downed by ZIPRA Forces in September 1978. All passengers on board died.

@Blabber, General Peter Walls WAS supposed to be on that flight. Only last minute changes saved him. The intelligence was spot on.

Both sides played dirty, the rhodesian light infantry was killing prisoners on the field, selous scouts doing their thing, the Rhidesian government(supported by apartheid south africa) experimenting with chemical and biological weapons on prisoners at the secret selous scout fort prison at mt darwin.... it was all dirty pasina zvekuti civilian. It was now open season with both sides employing terror tactics.... e.g Nyadzonia

They had innacurate intelligence that Rhodisian General peter walls would be on that plane. And it was also meant to shock the rhodie population who had all along believed that they were safe as the war was only in the Rhodesian bush. It was messy business though, 17 civilians survived the crash, only to be bayyoneted to death by a ZIPRA detachment that arrived on the scene immediately after the crash
