By Mutsa Makuvaza

A Harare motorist lost US$18,000 cash which was grabbed from him as he was driving in Waterfalls well into curfew hours.

Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident saying the man was robbed this Tuesday evening by four unidentified suspects who were driving an unmarked Toyota Wish vehicle.

“A 36 year old man who was driving an Isuzu Cam vehicle at night along Malford Road was robbed of US$18 000 cash by four suspects who were driving an unregistered black Toyota Wish,” said Nyathi.

He urged anyone with information to contact a nearest Police Station.

Zimbabwe is under extended level 4 lockdown with a curfew on all travel between 6.30pm and 6.00am.

Meanwhile, police have distanced themselves from a statement circulating on social medai emblazoned with a ZRP logo which condemns the ongoing protests and looting in South Africa.

The statement seem by Zimbabwe Voice said that anyone who received goods from South Africa must keep receipts for verification as the goods might have been looted.

“The ZRP dismisses an article circulating on social media on looting of goods in South Africa which is accompanied by a ZRP logo. The public should take note that the ZRP has not issued this statement. In this regard the public should ignore the false and fake message,” Nyathi said.

He added that while the ZRP did not condone acts of criminality in SouthAfrica, it disassociates itself from this fake message.

“Any official statement from ZRP will be issued through appropriate channels,” Nyathi added. – Zimbabwe Voice
