Reports state that Chingoza enlisted the services of Tatenda Vengesai (29) from Mbare and together they proceeded to the football ground to carry out their transaction. Unfortunately, the outcome was far from what Chingoza anticipated.

While in the process of having tlof tlof, Ethan Mugore (40) suddenly appeared with some unknown men and attacked him before robbing him.

Upon putting one and one together, Isaac Chingoza realised that he had been set up by Tatenda, who was working with Ethan. Chingoza wasted no time and reported the matter to the police who arrested Ethan and Tatenda before detaining them at Stodart Police Station.

Speaking to H-Metro, Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza confirmed the incident. He revealed that Isaac was referred to Sally Mugabe Central Hospital for treatment after he sustained a deep cut on the nose during the attack.
