The Zimbabwe Republic Police has confirmed the arrest of notorious armed robbery suspects for a spate of robbery cases committed in and around Harare between the period 8th September and 29th November 2021.
Witness Nyarupa Alias Marori (40), Ronald Munyaradzi Nyangaire (41), Checksmore Godza (30) and Rutendo Rose Saithi (20) and seven others who are still at large, would pounce on unsuspecting home owners while armed with unidentified pistols before tying the complainants with shoe laces, ropes or electric cables, Police National spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said.
“The suspects would then threaten their victims with pistols while demanding cash and other valuables.
“The suspects are linked to three counts of armed robbery cases which occurred in Kuwadzana Extension, Eastlea and Unit J, Chitungwiza, where they stole property ranging from television sets, decoders, cellphones, groceries and two vehicles, a Honda CRV and Nissan Sylph, all worth over US$31 500-00,” Ass-Comm Nyathi said.
He said police have since recovered the two stolen vehicles, three blankets, two cellphones and a television set from the suspects and comprehensive investigations to link the suspects to other robbery cases are underway.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police reiterates that there is no going back in efforts to account for all robbery suspects in the country,” he noted.
