    BUHERA –
    Police has recovered several truckloads of goods after arresting Richard Musiyambanje (41), a suspected serial thief based at Murambinda Growth Point.
    Goods including car tyres, generators, grinders, TVs, braai stands, ZESA pre-paid meters and blankets were recovered from house no 3735 Chengoma location at Murambinda Growth Point. Police had gone to the house to search for a rifle which Musiyambanje was said to possess when they stumbled upon the big haul. The accused has already appeared in court facing 19 charges of unlawful entry and attempted murder while numerous other cases are still under investigation. Musiyambanje who is being represented by Robert Macharaga of Mugiya and Macharaga Law Chambers applied for bail before a fully packed court at Murambinda.
    Manicaland Police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakowa invited members of the public who lost their valuables to thieves to come and identify them.
    Musiyambanje was arrested on July 15, 2019 and since then hordes of residents have been making a bee-line to the Police station to identify stolen property.
    Musiyambanje is denying the allegations saying that he is a cross border trader and he bought the goods from various countries in the region.
    Police are sure that Musiyambanje is the man who was the source of daily reports on housebreaking and unlawful entry in the area.
    Police also suspects that Musiyambanje was working with a chain of accomplices and has in the process engaged Maxwell Masaiti (22) a habitual criminal. Kakowa described Masaiti as a jail bird recently released from prison.
    Masaiti was in jail after he recently broke into a house and stole some maize.
    “I encourage residents not to leave their homes unmanned, to keep dogs and to switch off inside lights and switch on outside lights” said Kakowa.
