Woman loses goods worth US$3 000 after bus conductor handed them to unidentified man at Roadport


A CROSS-BORDER trader lost goods worth US$3 000 at Roadport bus terminus after a conductor, who was caught on camera, handed them to another person.

Faith Phiri lost goods that included three bags full of clothes and hair weaves to an unidentified person, who got the parcels from a Silverstone bus conductor, Raymond Mukuwiri.

Harare Provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Tendai Mwanza, could not be reached for comment yesterday.

But, H-Metro, is reliably informed the case was reported at Harare Central Police Station under CR 249/12/21.

Phiri is unhappy with Mukuwiri, and his Road Port manager Natasha Mangwanya, for the way they handled her goods.

“I booked my parcels with Silverstone bus crew in Johannesburg destined for Harare on December 23, 2021 at 4pm,” said Phiri.

“The bus arrived in Zimbabwe on Christmas Day at 6pm and they denied me an opportunity to collect the goods arguing that it was late.

“I returned to the port the following day, at around 0745hrs, and was advised that my parcel had been collected by a person they could not identify.

“I confronted Natasha and we went to the surveillance camera where we were shocked to see Mukuviri handing over the parcels to an unidentified man.

“Natasha refused to call Mukuwiri saying he was at his village only to hear later that he had crossed the border.

“Instead of helping me recover my goods, Silverstone management decided to block my contacts and Natasha is refusing to entertain me.”

Mangwanya said Mukuwiri was now working in Johannesburg.

“Yes, Mukuwiri is our bus conductor and is currently working in Johannesburg.

“I will send contact numbers of the right person to respond to the allegations soon.”

H-Metro managed to contact another Silverstone manager, only identified as Charles, who is based in South Africa.

“Raymond Mukuwiri is on his way to Harare and I cannot comment more since the matter is being handled by police,” said Charles.
