Man Robbed Of US$2 000 By People Who Offered Him A Lift

Man Robbed Of US$2 000 By People Who Offered Him A Lift

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is investigating a robbery case in which a man was robbed of nearly US$2000 by four people who had offered him a lift at Harare Show Grounds. Said the police in a statement:

The Police are investigating a robbery case in which a 44-year-old man was robbed of US$1 950 cash by four unidentified suspects along Harare-Bulawayo Road on 27/10/21.

The complainant was offered a lift to Bulawayo by the suspects who were travelling in an unregistered Toyota Corolla motor vehicle, at Harare Showground.

In a related case of robbery, three suspects attacked a 24-year-old man before stealing a cellphone, K500, US$35 and a bank card on 26/10/21 near Sunningdale Trust, Chinhoyi, along Harare-Chirundu highway.

The complainant was offered a lift to Chirundu by the suspects who were travelling in a Toyota Fortuner vehicle.

Scores of people have in the past lost money and other valuables to armed robbers who offer transport in unmarked vehicles.

While some of the robbers are being arrested, some are still at large.

The robbers are taking advantage of the shortage of public transport, an issue that worsened when private-owned commuter omnibuses (kombis) were banned from roads as a measure to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Authorities have indicated that they will not allow kombis on the streets again, even if the coronavirus goes away.
