Rogue bouncer Gideon Sanyangore critically ill in prison

Following their arrest over violent behaviour at various entertainment scenes, one of the violent bouncers Gideon Sanyangore is reportedly critically ill in remand prison and they are pleading for forgiveness.

Blessing Kumunda (36) and Gideon Sanyangore (32) were denied bail by Harare regional magistrate Mr Stanford Mambanje, who ruled that they were not good candidates for bail.

The two are facing attempted murder charges after one of them produced a knife at Pabloz nightclub in Borrowdale last year.

According to audio forwarded in a group of bouncers, a fellow unidentified bouncer has pleaded with promoters such as Chipaz to intervene and probably help in assisting the ailing Gideon Sanyangore.

Reports say that he is no longer able to walk and is even being carried to toilet.

Unfortunately, some of the promoters have rejected the plea saying they should face the law as required.

One of the promoters is saying that the bouncers are so violent and probably unrepentant as they robbed him of his gate takings when he hosted Selmor Mutukudzi’s show.

Some are arguing that there is nothing they can do for Gideon Sanyangore since the issue is before the courts.

Magistrate Mambanje said there is overwhelming evidence linking them to the offence which might induce them to flee.

They are expected back in court on January 30.

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.

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

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.
