MBERENGWA – In yet another gruesome robbery recorded in the Southern Region in the last two weeks, Decent Moyo a gold dealer and businessman was allegedly waylaid on arrival at his farm and kidnapped, his body was later found outside a hotel in Mberengwa some few km from the farm.
Midlands Provincial Police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko confirmed the murder which happened on Saturday night.
It is suspected that the robbers who then escaped with Moyo's car wanted money as gold dealers are known for travelling around with large sums of cash.
Chief Maziofa expressed concern at the number of robberies that are being reported in Mberengwa where thugs wielding machetes are robbing people.
"We urge Police to act fast as the situation is getting out of hand," said Maziofa.
 "We have received the report about the kidnap and murder but I am yet to get more information over the case since investigations are still underway," said Goko.
Moyo's uncle James Zhou told The Mirror that the deceased was kidnapped around 8pm at his Costas Farm where he regularly stays when conducting his business in the district.
"Decent had just arrived at the farm and the moment he got out of his car a group of about five people armed with machetes came from the maize field where I suspect they have been hiding. They managed to push him into his car before speedding  off. A Police report was made," said Zhou.
Moyo's body was found dumped near Mberengwa Hotel the next day with deep cuts showing that he was attacked by machetes until he died.
His vehicle was not recovered.
A Senior Police officer who attended the scene said gold dealers usually travel with large sums of money and this might have attracted the robbers.
"Gold dealers usually travel with large sums of money and this attracts robbers. This was the same case with another businessman Taurai Zimwara who was robbed of $7 000 last month. For security reasons such people must travel with security details to avoid a case like this," said the police officer who cannot be named due to protocol.
Moyo's body was ferried to Bulawayo for postmortem; meanwhile mourners are gathered at his Coasters Farm.
 "The Police must do something about this gang, I know Moyo is the fourth businessman to be mugged by this notorious gang. My people are now living in fear hence the Police must do something about this," said Maziofa.
