Masked gunmen pounce on Mutasa family, get away with their kombi, US$600, R3 500 and 400 Pula


SIX gun-toting robbers recently pounced on a Mutasa family and made good their escape with a Nissan Caravan vehicle, cash and property.

The robbers, who were putting on balaclavas, robbed the family of US$600, R3 500, 400 Pula as well as two cellphones before driving off with the vehicle.

Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luxson Chananda, confirmed the robbery which happened in Newengo Village in Chief Mutasa’s area recently.

“Ngandu Jekiseni (43) was with his wife, Sharon when the robbery took place. They were confronted by six robbers who were armed with pistols and were wearing balaclavas. They were ordered to lie down.

“One of the suspects kicked Ngandu on the ribs before demanding money. They first grabbed US$500 before force-marching Sharon into another room. They stole another US$100, R3 500, 400 Pula as well as some clothing. They took away the car keys and drove off with the couple’s white Nissan Caravan,” said Insp Chananda.

They are still at large and police are appealing to members of the public with information leading to the arrest of the suspects to contact their nearest police station.
