Two Munangagwa Brothers In Court On Robbery, Gun Charges

Two Munangagwa Brothers In Court On Robbery, Gun Charges

Two nephews of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Tawanda Munangagwa (36) and Vengai Munangagwa (45), were arrested on Friday and charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery and possession of illegal firearms, reported ZimLive.

Tawanda is a squadron leader in the Air Force of Zimbabwe at Manyame while his brother, Vengai is alleged to be a Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) officer.

The suspects were not asked to plead when they briefly appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi on Saturday.

The magistrate remanded the duo in custody to 29 April after advising them to apply for bail at the High Court.

Prosecutor George Manokore told the court that police received a tip-off that the suspects were planning to commit armed robbery at 5 Overlaw Farm in Kadoma.

Manokore further alleged that on 14 April, police detectives followed the two men as they drove in a white Nissan Hardbody along Samora Machel Avenue.

When they realised that they were being tracked, Vengai allegedly drove at high speed on the Bulawayo highway leading to a high-speed chase.

It is alleged that the Munangagwa brothers were arrested at a roadblock in Norton.

Police detectives searched their vehicle and found an AK47 rifle loaded with 30 rounds of ammunition.

Police also recovered a Tokarev pistol hidden between a mattress and the base of a bed during a search of Tawanda’s home at 21 Retreat Farm in Waterfalls on 15 April. Tawanda allegedly told police the pistol belonged to Vengai.

Prosecutors say both men did not have licences for the firearms.

Vengai and Tawanda are said to be the sons of one of President Mnangagwa’s brothers and the “u” in their surname is a misspelling that was made by officials at the Civil Registry Department.

Yes l can confirm vakomana vabuda. They had another mission to attend to. They won't get caught this tyme around. As the long arm of the law, l assure you that all those who tipped off the police about their planned robbery will be brought to book.

This story has made it as part of the news how? Is it because the surname of these guys is almost similar to that of the president?

It is good that His Excellency President ED MNANGAGWA did not interfere with the investigations. It is unfortunate that they are soiling their MNANGAGWA family name. Let us hope police that police shall not connect them with previous armed robbery cases..
