The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has announced the arrest of 11 robbery suspects linked to a spate of robbery and unlawful entry into premises and theft cases committed in and around Karoi. In a statement seen by Pindula News, police national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the crimes were committed between April 2021 and September 2022. Reads the statement:


The Zimbabwe Republic Police confirms the arrest of Gift Asafu (29), Goodness Gandiwa (36), Kudakwashe Kapesa (24), Taurai Musindo (23), Tapera Zimbapeni (22), Onias Matangi (47), Evans Milanzi (24), Jimmy Dzokamushure (49), Addition Chagadama (22), Jeremy Nyakujara (27), and Nicholas Samuel (22) in connection with a spate of robbery and unlawful entry into premises and theft cases committed in and around Karoi between April 2021 and September 2022.

On 7th September 2022, Police acted on a tip-off and tracked one of the suspects, Gift Asafu, who was linked to several cases of robbery in Karoi. Police interviewed the suspect who implicated 11 other suspects, including Charles Phiri, who is still at large.

The suspects are now linked to nine robbery cases and one unlawful entry into premises and theft case. Some of the cases include a robbery case which occurred at Energy Park service station, Karoi, on 28th December 2021 at around 2100 hours where they robbed the service station manager of US$51 000-00 and a VW Golf vehicle at gunpoint and another robbery case where they attacked three security guards who were on duty at Brockerly Farm, Karoi, before stealing various agricultural inputs and 17,5 tonnes of soya beans all valued at US$80 000, among others.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police has since launched a manhunt on the outstanding suspect, Charles Phiri, alias Chewaz. Anyone with information should report at any nearest Police Station or contact the National Complaints Desk on 0242 703631, or WhatsApp 0712800197.

While I want to thank the police for arresting this robbery gang, I want to put it to them that they took a long time to arrest the robbers because the robbers were not well organised. They should not have taken one and half years to arrest them.

A well organised gang is mean or small. The bigger becomes the gang the more chances that one or will be careless. I urge the police to increase the informers and pay well for information supplied by informers or whistle blowers.



Yours faithfully
