    Fake Police inspector dupes N Richards Beitbridge driver


    BEITBRIDGE – A driver with N Richards, the country's leading wholesale shops Raphael Pedzisai Dingwiza (41) of Dulibadzimu in Beitbridge was slapped in the face and duped of $40 by a Police impostor who arrested him on allegations of drinking and driving on duty.
    Blessing Mutote who claimed that he was a Police inspector who had just been transferred to Beitbridge is alleged to have demanded $200 from the complainant so that he would not arrest him and also report him to the employer.
    It is the State case that on September 28, 2016; Dingwiza together with his friends Mashoko Moyo and Tafadzwa Nyamadzovo were drinking Super beer while seated in an N Richards wholesale delivery truck at Total Service Station in Beitbridge.
    Blessing Mutote arrived and claimed that he was a newly transferred assistant inspector with the Zimbabwe Republic Police stationed in Beitbridge.
    Mutote who is a permanent resident in Dulibadzimu accused Dingwiza of public drinking and demanded a 'spot fine' of $200 which was going to settle and stop any further Police action against him. Dingwiza pleaded with Mutote saying he was on his way to deliver goods and had no money on him. Mutote allegedly then demanded of Dingwiza's driver's license.
    Afraid that he would lose his job, Dingwiza gave Mutote the $40 that he had. They agreed that the balance be paid later that day.
    However, at 1830 hours on the same day, Mutote hired a taxi which he used to hunt for Dingwiza and found him at Mashavire Business Center. Mutote told him he had no option but to detain him in Police custody.
    Dingwiza got into the taxi but to his surprise, they passed the Police station and got High Energy Enterprises Truck Stop in the industrial area.
    Upon arrival, Mutote inquired when he was to get his balance of $160 but was angered the most as Dingwiza told him he had no idea of when he was to get the money.
