Police in Harare have launched an investigation into a gun incident that took place in Glen Norah at a church shrine, masowe on Sunday. This comes at a time police issued a warning to all armed criminals of the danger of getting shot dead.

According to Zimbabwe Republic police statement, a suspect only identified as Sibongile and an unknown man pointed a gun at the 56-year-old complainant at a church shrine along Sebakwe Road, Glenorah B, in Harare.

“The suspects had demanded S$5000.00 cash from the complainant, allegedly given to him to start a business by one, Monicah Ndlovu who is in United Kingdom,” police said.

Meanwhile, police have stated that they will not hesitate to shoot and kill all offenders of violent criminal acts in order to ensure that members of the public live in a tranquil and crime-free environment.

A recent wave of armed robberies, as well as the tragic fatal shooting of three people by a lone gunman in Hwedza last Friday afternoon, have heightened concern in society, pushing police to take a stricter stance on gun-related crimes, The Herald reports.

Police Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga revealed the stringent measures during the funeral service for the officer-in-charge of Wedza Police Station, Inspector Maxwell Hove (43) who was one of three people shot and killed, allegedly by former Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officer, Jaison Muvevi.

Comm-Gen Matanga expressed concern about the continuous use of firearms in the nation’s many terrible crimes while speaking at the church service.

“Without doubt, it can never be right for any individual not to respect the sanctity of human life. We have also gathered with concern that despite Government’s amnesty on holders of unregistered firearms to surrender them, many such weapons are being recovered at crime scenes,” said Comm Gen Matanga.

He asserted that police will not remain motionless while law enforcement personnel, let alone innocent bystanders, are being slaughtered by riotous outlaws.

“Those with unregistered firearms would be deemed to have a criminal intent and would be liable for prosecution. Consequently, police officers would not hesitate to shoot to kill all perpetrators of heinous crimes such as armed robbery,” he said.

He said investigations on Muvevi were still continuing while he was in custody.
