A herd of 58 cattle and 9 donkeys stolen from Botswana by a Zimbabwean suspect has been recovered by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) at Jani farm in Gwanda.
This comes amid efforts by both Zimbabwe and Botswana to fight the problem of cross border stock-theft.
ZRP national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi told the ZBC News that on 28 May the complainants from Semolale, Bobonang, Gobojango and Mabolwe villages in Bobirwa district decided to track the spore of the stolen animals and were led to the Zimbabwe border.
The breakthrough, however, came after the farmers from the neighbouring country teamed up with officers from Zimbabwe where a herd of 58 cattle and 9 donkeys, some baring several brand marks were recovered at Jani farm in Gwanda.
Currently the herd is at Guyu Police Station and a suspect Nkosiyabo Gumbi has been arrested in connection with the case.
