MASVINGO - Six robbers with two of them armed hit Montana Carswell Meats along Lithium Road in the industrial area of Masvingo on Sunday morning and got away with $13 800 from the safe.These is the fourth armed robbery in Masvingo
inside five weeks.
Craig Greeff who is the manager at the company confirmed the incident but declined to disclose the actual amount. He however, said they had to keep
cash in the safe because they needed to pay farmers who cannot access money from the Banks."Two robbers were armed while four others were
not. They wore masks and broke into our premises through the back fence and dismantled the CCTV then tied up the security guard with shoe strings
and forcibly opened the front door. They blew up two safes using dynamite and took some few thousand dollars."We  keep  the  money  to  pay  our  farmers.  Because of the cash crisis we can't put the money in the bank since we won't be able to get it back in cash," said Greeff.
When contacted for comment Masvingo Province  Assistant  Police  spokesperson  Assistant  Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa said, "We encourage
businesses  to  deposit  their  daily  takings  in  order not to make it lucrative for robbers".Greeeff said the security guard managed to
escape and contacted Phyllis Khan who then informed him about the incident at around 3AM on Sunday. He went on to report the robbery to the Police but nothing has been recovered and no one has been apprehended in connection with the case so far.
"We suspect that it could be an internal job although it is too early to tell because the Police are still carrying out investigations."I  would  like  to  urge  the  business  community to increase their security because these robbers
are still around and you can be a victim any time," added Greeff.
The money was insured. Masvingo Province has in the past three months witnessed a number of armed robbers with some leaving their victims for
dead. At Doczim Service Station along Industrial Road they got away with over $4000 in cash, at Spar Supermarket at the popular Stop Over Night
spot the robbers shot a bullet through 17 year old David  Dhuwa's  abdomen  and  at  Pangolin  shopping  centre  in  Mucheke  they  pumped  three  bullets  in  Gift  Cephas'  leg  and  one  at  the  back  and got away with $700. Cephas is still admitted at Parirenyatwa Hospital.
In Zaka they robbed Mukumba Bus Service at gun point of $750 while at Ngundu Halt Business Centre they made away with $1300 and passengers' accessories from an A and A Bus Company.
Other robberies were reported in Chiredzi, Zvishavane, Gweru and Chivhu where cash was stolen and shootings witnessed.
