    Morningside carjacker arrested in Rusape


    - A notorious Rusape carjacker who was in the habit of stealing cars from drivers in Masvingo was caught in Rusape recently and has appeared before Provincial Magistrate Langton Ndokera.
    Tonderai Mborera (20) from Muradzikwa Village under Chief Chiduku in Rusape District allegedly robbed a Chesvingo man in Masvingo at knife point and took away his Toyota vehicle and sold it to another person.
    Mborera was caught in Rusape trying to collect the outstanding balance from the sale of the car.
    Mborera appeared before Ndokera facing a charge of robbery on April 6, 2016 and he pleaded guilty to the charge. He was sentenced to eight years in jail.
    It is the State case that on  December 16, 2015 at around 1pm, Fanuel  Chipato of Chesvingo was going to Sundowners Lodge in  Morningside Masvingo when he met Mborera at Sundowners turnoff and gave him a lift.
    The accused then produced a knife before ordering Chipato to stop the car and stabbed him on the left hand.
    Chipato opened the door leaving behind his driver's license and 10 dollars cash in the car and ran away from the advancing Mborera who hit him with a stone on the right arm.
    The complainant reported the matter to Rujeko Police Station.
    The vehicle was recovered in Rusape from Charity Tapfumanei who had bought it from Bernard Muchengeti who bought it from Mborera.
    Mborera was arrested on April 3, 2016 while he was trying to collect the outstanding balance from the sale of the car.
    Mborera was also charged for the same offence but in a different case in which he committed together with his brother Tatenda Mborera who is still at large for robbing Nyasha Chikanya of Nemamwa Growth Point in Masvingo of his Toyota vehicle.
    The court heard that on January 27, 2016 the two brothers hired Chikanya's tax to 4.1 Batallion in Masvingo and when they had reached 4.1 turnoff they ordered the taxi driver to return them to Ritz Night Club.
    On their way back the two ordered the driver to give them their money back and Tatenda grabbed the complainant while Tonderai opened the door and the driver ran away in fear the two drove off in his car.local news
