Bus passengers injured and robbed of R167,000 in Mvuma

SIXTY-SIX passengers aboard a cross boarder MBT bus were last night robbed of R167 050 and $7367 after three armed robbers, who were disguised as genuine travellers in the same bus, suddenly drew out pistols and started shooting at passengers before searching them one-by-one.

Police said the incident occured at the 186km peg along the Harare-Masvingo Highway near Mvuma town around 11pm yesterday.

Three passengers, including the bus driver Mr Lazarous Mungadzi (46), were injured.

One female passanger (name withheld), who was shot in the chest, is reportedly in a critical condition and is admitted at Gweru Provincial Hospital.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was still to gather the details.

The robbery has since been reported at Mvuma Police Station.
