Thugs Who Terrorized Bulawayo Residents Finally Arrested After Committing Multiple Murders
Three suspected thugs have been arrested in Bulawayo and are facing multiple murder and attempted murder charges.
The three men, Kholisani Nyathi, Walter Mpunzi and Nkosikhona Sibanda are alleged to have been terrorizing Bulawayo residents in the last few weeks. The three were finally arrested after the police in Bulawayo instituted several measures to target and bring to book violent criminals.
Kholisani Nyathi (27) of Mabutweni Suburb, Nkosikhona Sibanda of Lobengula West (25) and Walter Mpunzi (27) of Lobengula West are alleged to be part of a gang of armed robbers that went on a rampage and randomly axed anyone they came across in the Mabutweni suburb. Two people have died so far as a result of injuries sustained in the senseless and barbaric attack.
The three are also alleged to have waylaid residents making their way home at night. During these attacks, the trio is alleged to have killed two people and severely injured another.
The social misfits were arrested after the police received a tip-off from the public. They were charged with two counts of murder, seven counts of attempted murder, two counts of robbery and six counts of unlawful entry and theft.
The trio appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Ms Racheal Mukanga who remanded them in custody.
The court heard that on May 13, the three attacked a husband and a wife who were making their way home through a cemetery. The husband, Misheck Rindai Mapeta (54), succumbed to his injuries after being attacked with an axe and a knobkerrie. His wife Sarudzai Portia Showa (43) managed to flee although she suffered some injuries.
On the same night, the gang robbed and killed another resident who was making his way home. The prosecutor told the court,
“On May 13, the three attacked and killed a man who was walking in a footpath near a stream which demarcates Mabutweni and Njube Suburbs near B Burombo road in Mabutweni. The accused persons struck the now-deceased Joseph Mawa Moyo (63) of Mabutweni suburb with an axe twice on the head. The now-deceased sustained two deep cuts on the head and was taken to Mpilo Hospital for treatment where he died the following day.”
The three then joined their fellow gang members in axing random people in Mabutweni suburb following a dispute over US$2 (two united states dollars).
