School Loses US$120 000 To Armed Robbers

A 46-year-old Harare man has appeared in court after he allegedly robbed a school in Waterfalls of US$120 000.

The suspect, Goodwell Mapininga, appeared before magistrate Yeukai Dzuda charged with robbery and money laundering.

He allegedly attacked a security guard who was manning the school premises before breaking into the cash office.

Mapininga was investigated after he started living a lavish lifestyle. He went on a spending spree, buying motor vehicles allegedly from the proceeds of crime.

In another armed robbery case, three suspects allegedly pounced on a Chitungwiza family and got away with US$44 000.

Rashid Adam Chipanga (29), Joseph Makoni (27) and 34-year-old Tawanda Gau appeared in court on Tuesday and were remanded in custody.

They were advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

Meanwhile, police in Marondera are investigating a robbery case which occurred on 30 May 2022 at Ruvimbo location, Marondera, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) posted on Twitter.

Police said the complainant (44) was using a Honda Fit vehicle, AEG 3554 as a taxi and was hired from Marondera Bus terminus to Ruvimbo location by one of the suspects.

Upon arrival at Ruvimbo, two other suspects joined the first suspect and attacked the complainant with iron bars before putting him in the boot.

The suspects stole the vehicle, clothes, cellphone and US$100 cash before dumping the complainant at March Farm in Marondera.

@Mwakusha....I dont support criminality but lets face the facts, vanhu varikuba because they have become desperate. Some years ago, there was only Chidhumo and Masendeke but now you'll hear of new robbers every day. All countries have crime I know but their rates are low. Isu we are turning into South Africa. The cause is unemployment. We zimbabweans are hardworking people, mabasa akawanikwa hatinetsani nevanhu. I'd rather be just robbed ndosiiwa ndirimupenyu than to be robbed, raped and violently murdered.

Hanging criminals munaFirst is not the solution, it will only fuel them to be more violent and heartless. Gadzirisai zvinhu zvirikuita kuti vanhu vabe (UNEMPLOYMENT). What do you expect an unemployed and desperate person to do, iyo nyika ine hupfumi (resources)?

Mbavha inongoba chero economy yakanaka. Criminality can't be condoned by any means. Hapana mbavha inoita heartless yaona vamwe vachiorera muna first umo. Chop criminals ­čąę into pieces vamwe vachiona. Vanhu vanoita bho. Ngavatengese madomasi or kuita zvimwe kwete kuita threat to state security
