    Money changer robbed, shoved into the boot of a car


    MASVINGO – Two Masvingo men, a taxi driver and a money changer were last week robbed of cash and a cellphone before being stashed into the boot of their car by robbers who are still at large.
    The two lost goods worth $4 030; R15 600 in cash and a cell phone valued at $900 to the robbers.
    Acting Police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident which happened in the plush suburb of Rhodhene in Masvingo.
    Sources told The Mirror that Munyaradzi Dzasukwa (22), a taxi driver was in the company of Herikanosi Kani (30), a money changer who stays in Mucheke A when Kani received a call from someone who wanted to change some money.
    Since it was a Sunday, the two friends were driving around town whiling up time when the call came in. After receiving the call from the robbers, the two went to Chicken Inn where Kani sourced for R15 000 from colleagues and then drove to Rhus Avenue in Rhodhene where the supposed clients were waiting.
    In Rhodhene they found one of the accused who was wearing faded jeans, standing under a tree. Kani got off the vehicle, offered the accused one beer can and started talking business. Whilst they were talking, a slim male adult of medium height approached from the bush.
    Suddenly the one who was negotiating with the money changer drew a pistol from his waist, pointed it at the complainant and threatened him. He ordered Kani to lie down and Dzasukwa in the car not to move.
    Kani was forced into the car and both occupants were searched. The robbers helped themselves to R15 600, various goods and the G-Telx7 plus cell phone and a Nokia 301 with Econet lines.
    The complainants were shoved into the boot of their Toyota Fun Cargo. The robbers drove the vehicle into Juranta Avenue and after driving for 400 metres from the scene, they parked by the roadside. One of the accused disembarked, opened the boot and ordered the two to get out of the vehicle.
    The complainants proceeded to make a report at the Police Station. Nothing was recovered.
    Dhewa urged members of the public to avoid doing business at insecure places.
