Gweru shooting victims out of danger, gunman still on the run

By ZBC Reporter

TWO Gweru shooting victims are now out of danger with one of the sisters now discharged from hospital while the other one underwent a successful surgery amid fears that the suspected gunman who is still on the run might pounce again on the victims.

The sisters who survived a fatal shooting incident which claimed the lives of a Kwekwe gold and car dealer Shelton Chinhango and his alleged girlfriend Gamuchirai Mudungwe are recuperating well after undergoing surgeries.

The suspected killer who is a car dealer, Peter Dube aged 35 is still on the run with fears that he might have skipped the boarder to Mozambique a situation that is giving survivors and their relatives’ sleepless nights.

 Well, I can confirm that one of my daughters is now out of the hospital. The other one had surgery where a bullet was removed from her head and is now out of the ICU. It’s been a traumatising experience as we are trying to come to terms with what happened, said Ishmael Nharingo(Father to the victims).

The ZBC News Crew managed to track one of the shooting victims Nyasha Nharingo who is wife to the alleged killer who was at pains in narrating her ordeal.

I’m at pains to understand what became of my husband. We were already on separation after he beat me up in January. Shelton was trying to help me in all the mess. Previously he was never abusive until the January incident. It’s really painful and now that he has not been caught am still fearing for my life and my loved ones, she said.

The Gweru shooting incident which left the community in shock has prompted the Joint Operation Command in the province to revisit the guns issued in the region with a view to recall some of the ammunition issued.
