Mine Owner Robbed Of US$24 000 At Girlfriend's Place

A 44-year-old miner was robbed of US$24 000 during a visit to his girlfriend in Trenance suburb, Bulawayo.

The miner, who has not been named, was robbed of cash, his car, and explosives by two gun-wielding men.

B-Metro reported a source close to the investigations as saying the man, who cannot be named for professional reasons, runs a mine in Inyathi, Matabeleland North Province. Said the source:

He got 391 grammes of gold from his mine and travelled to Bulawayo’s Parklands suburb where he sold it to a gold buyer and fetched US$24 000.

After that, he drove to his lover’s place in Trenance suburb. While he was parked in front of the gate at around 8:30 PM this week on Monday two gunmen emerged from the darkness and confronted him and pointed a pistol at him while demanding money.

They grabbed a small bag that contained the US$24 000 and they also took his explosives.

It is further alleged that after the robbery, one of the robbers headed into the house to fetch the miner’s girlfriend. Said the source:

He found her preparing to come to the gate and he warned her not to scream while threatening to shoot her.

He force-marched her to her lover’s car and when they got there they ordered the miner to disembark from the car and instructed the pair to lie down on the ground and in the process, they fired one shot into the air.

Soon after that, they drove off in his car leaving them lying down on the ground.

The miner and his girlfriend later reported the robbery incident at Sauerstown Police Station.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson in Bulawayo Province, Inspector Abednico Ncube, confirmed the incident.

He appealed for anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the robbers to contact any nearest police station or call Bulawayo police on 029-60358. | B-Metro

The other angle maybe the girlfriend and the miner are into it together that's if his money has a claim if stolen before safely securing it. Also the other angle how did they know the girl friend is coming ti the gate also that the house has no dogs or any kind of security like CCTVs..

This is now too much Zimbabwe is now stinking with armed robbery cases everywhere be it genuine or staged we no longer feel safe.

I think the girlfriend has something to do with this case . Why she take time to come out of home . I know many girlfriend will wait for you at the gate to accompany you to the house and to check if the is no some other girls in the car. More over what the robberies want was money what was the reason for them to go ahead into the house while they have 24000 inhand . In the house they don't know number of people who are there and how powerful they're so what was the reason for robberies to go into the house while they have cash in hand
