Zimdancehall star Freeman under police investigation for suspected connections to armed robbery suspects

In a surprising turn of events, popular Zimdancehall artist Freeman, real name Energy Chizanga, finds himself at the center of a police investigation over alleged connections to armed robbery suspects. The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) confirmed the development in a statement posted on X (Twitter) Tuesday afternoon.

According to the official police statement, Freeman, aged 34, is currently being interviewed by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Homicide unit as part of an ongoing investigation into criminal allegations and his alleged association with individuals involved in armed robbery cases.

“The ZRP confirms that musician Energy Chizanga (34) aka “Freeman” is currently being interviewed by CID Homicide in connection with ongoing investigations into criminal allegations and association with armed robbery suspects. More details to be availed,” said police on X.

This recent development comes shortly after Freeman distanced himself from any involvement in armed robbery activities following the death of his close acquaintance and music promoter, Godknows Machingura, during a shootout with law enforcement agents. Machingura, along with South African national Jabulani Ngobeni, was tragically shot dead, while four others were apprehended by the authorities.

Freeman had reportedly collaborated with Machingura in promoting his show in South Africa, yet the artist has vehemently denied any association with criminal activities.

As news of the police investigation spreads, the Zimdancehall community and the public at large are left in anticipation of further updates regarding the ongoing probe. Freeman’s fans, who have ardently supported his music career, are particularly concerned and await the conclusion of the investigation to ascertain the artist’s innocence.
