Mother Of Murdered Wedza Cop Blames Outdated Police Equipment For Son’s Death

Mother Of Murdered Wedza Cop Blames Outdated Police Equipment For Son’s Death

The mother of the late Wedza police station Officer in Charge Inspector Maxwell Hove, who was allegedly shot dead by Jaison Muvevi, has blamed her son’s death on obsolete Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) equipment.

Hove (43), as well as apostolic sect member Cripsen Kanerusine (62) and Munashe Mujani (20) —a shop attendant, were shot dead by Muvevi in Wedza on January 13.

A video circulating on social media shows Inspector Hove’s emotional mother telling senior ZRP officials at the late top cop’s burial in Chinda Village in Mberengwa, that the outdated police vehicle and gun involved in the frantic shooting incident which also left another officer seriously injured, is to blame for her son’s death.

Said the mother:

I am a bereaved mother whose heart bleeds for her son’s death. Forgive me, but you have to listen to me, I am very hurt because my son could not escape from the police vehicle he was in because its door could not open.

How is it possible that the door of a police station vehicle failed to open? Even if you were in my shoes, you would be hurt under such circumstances as a mother. Maybe if the door of the vehicle had opened, the story could have been different.

If that vehicle had doors expected of a police vehicle, maybe my son would be alive.

Secondly, I was told the gun he was using failed to discharge. The ZRP needs state of the art firearms not those of the Ian Smith era that are outdated. Provided modern weapons, our police officers will feel safe in the conduct of their duties.

Muvevi is currently in police custody and appeared in court today facing three counts of murder and attempted murder.

Ak 47 rifles are outdated, modern rifles are the M6 rifle

Vesto 1 week ago

Age has nothing to do with jamming. it's all about maintenance. Jamming results from sand, grit. dust or other dirt/extraneous matter in the firing mechanism of the rifle. All rifles lose accuracy with time because of the wearing of the rifles within the barrel. But the AK, because of the shorter barrel loses accuracy more than the longer barrelled FN.

Actually the FN rifle is much better than the AK. even the improved version, the AKM. It is more accurate at longer range, doesn't lift as much as the AK/AKM.

So really the problem with the police issue FN has more to do with poor maintenance than anything else.

Muvhevhi should have killed at least 10 cops and he was going to be a big hero in Zimbabwe. Why did l say so because the Zim police force is after money only. I think it's a good lesson kuPolice force. Here in Zimbabwe we are using maAllions Honda Fit Caravan C200 Benz. Why can't the police buy those cars and brand them. They is this incident that happened in Byo the police force arrived after 2 hours because they did not have a car and the robberies were using a Honda fit. Matanga please be serious
