Robbers Hit Cross Border Bus, Get Away With R170K, US$7K

Three armed robbers, who were disguised as genuine travellers in a cross border bus, last night robbed passengers of R167 050 and $7367.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) say the robbers suddenly drew out pistols and started shooting at sixty-six passengers aboard a cross-border MBT bus before searching them one-by-one.

Police said the incident occurred at the 186km peg along the Harare-Masvingo Highway near Mvuma town around 11 pm on Monday.

Three passengers, including the bus driver Mr Lazarous Mungadzi (46), were injured.

One female passenger (name withheld), who was shot in the chest, is reportedly in a critical condition and is admitted at Gweru Provincial Hospital.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was still to gather the details.

The robbery has since been reported at Mvuma Police Station.

The ZRP cannot fight this alone there are working on a well known GOVERNMENTIAL UNIFORM.

THEY CAN DO A BETTER JOB WHEN THEY PISTOLS EACH AND WORK WITH CID.

BY NOW THEY ARE STILL BEING HELPED BY COMMUNITY PEOPLE WHO MIGHT HAVE A CLUE OF WHO NOTORIOUS IN THE AREA AND THEY WORK ON THAT

THEY ARE AGAIN USING TIP OFFS FROM THE GIRLFRIENDS OF THE ROBBERS WHEN THEY DIVORCE

NOW WHEN POLICE MEN HAS HIS OWN PISTOL HE CAN GET A HELP FROM PASSENGERS OR GENERAL PEOPLE OF THE COMMUNITY

LOTS OF THESE THIEVES ARE RELATIVES OR FRIENDS. AND WE LIVE WITH THEM AT OUR VILLAGES.

ITS EASIER TO GET MORE GUNS AND VEHICLES FOR OUR POLICE AND THIS CRISIS OF ROBBERS

It doesn't help to give the police more guns It only makes it worse in violence . Imagine how easy it is for 2 or 3 robbers to steal a gun from a police officer .

Plus gun violence has always been there just that these days they get a lot of media coverage .We shouldn't panic because crime is part of society .Each country has its own share of criminals.
