    Robber leaves Renco taxi driver’s intestines dangling


    RENCO – A commuter taxi driver who plies between Renco Mine and Renco Turn-off along the Ngundu -Chiredzi highway was left with his intestines dangling outside after a robber stabbed him three times before fleeing with his car.
    Tasara Mugwagwa (20) of Village 5 under Chief Nyajena who was attacked on Saturday evening is battling for his life at Renco Mine Clinic and he also lost a Fun Cargo and $US30 cash.
    Masvingo acting Police Spokesperson Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident.
    Tafadzwa Janyure (20) of Janyure Village under Chief Mkanganwi has since been arrested over the offence after he was spotted with the Fun Cargo in Bikita.
    Mugwagwa was stabbed once on the stomach, right side of his chest and upper left arm. 
    Sources said that on August 25, 2018 at around 7pm Mugwagwa was commuting to Renco Mine from Renco Turn Off when the accused hired him intending to go to Pedzisai Village to attend a funeral.
    Upon arrival, the accused asked Mugwagwa to offload his luggage from the car. 
    He then attacked Mugwagwa with an okapi knife leaving him with protruding intestines.
    Mugwagwa fought back and sustained more knife cuts to the chest and left hand. He managed to grab the knife and stab the accused on the cheek before fleeing to the nearest homestead for assistance as his intestines were protruding.
    The accused left behind a blue Powerland bag containing khaki trousers, black belt, 14 kilograms of sugar and a black Sony camera.
    Mugwagwa received first aid from Munyaradzi, Aspinas and Caleb Pedzisai before being taken to Renco Mine Clinic by Police for further treatment.
    Janyure was apprehended on Saturday at a Police roadblock near Matimba Service Station in Bikita and the Fun Cargo was recovered.
