High drama as citizens arrest bogus police officer at Machipisa Shopping Centre


In a brazen incident of impersonation and assault, a Harare man was arrested on June 8th, 2024, for posing as a police officer at the Machipisa Shopping Centre.

According to police, the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Kundai Taruvinga, along with two accomplices, allegedly accused a victim of illegal foreign currency dealings. The trio, who claimed to be law enforcement officers, then proceeded to physically assault the victim.

However, their criminal act was cut short as members of the public intervened and apprehended Taruvinga. Unfortunately, his two accomplices managed to escape the scene before they could be detained.
