Betrayal As Friends Jam A Vehicle Of An Unsuspecting Man, Gets Away With US$90 000
THREE Harare men reportedly jammed a vehicle of an unsuspecting friend and got away with US$90 000.
Tsungai Mazanhi, 33, Tawanda Machingauta 37, and Valentine Genko, 27, were captured on CCTV cameras at Marimba Shopping Centre in Belvedere committing the crime.
The trio appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi facing theft charges and were remanded in custody to Monday for bail consideration.
One of the suspects, Farai Kachepa is still on the run.
The State alleges that on June 15, 2021, at Marimba shopping complex, the accused persons hatched a plan to steal cash from the complainant.
It is alleged they were all aware he was keeping large sums of money in his vehicle. The complainant intended to clear his tax arrears with Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA).
Pursuant to their plan, on June 14, Mazanhi told the complainant that he had set an appointment for him to meet one Brigadier Mutsvairo in Norton claiming he would assist him in clearing his taxes.
It is further alleged that on June 15, the complainant took US$90 000, a pistol and put it in a satchel which he placed underneath the driver’s seat of his vehicle.
It is alleged that the complainant contacted Mazanhi to travel to Norton and meet Brigadier Mutsvairo.
Mazanhi allegedly instructed the complainant to meet him at OK Marimba Supermarket as they wanted to leave his vehicle there.
When the complainant agreed, Mazanhi told his accomplices to go to OK Marimba car park, and waylaid the complainant.
It is the State’s case that when the complainant arrived at the car park, Mazanhi told the complainant that he was hungry and asked the complainant to buy some food inside OK Supermarket.
When the complainant pressed his vehicle locking system, Machingauta and Kachepa pressed their remote-control system and jammed the complainant’s locking system resulting in his vehicle failing to lock its doors.
It is alleged Mazanhi took the complainant to OK Supermarket and his accomplices went to the complainant’s vehicle and opened a rear door before taking a satchel with money and pistol and drove away in their getaway car.
The state further alleges that the gang shared the loot and Mazanhi bought a Mazda Axela vehicle with the proceeds of the offence.
