Triple murder fugitive Peter Dube arrested after three years

Police in Harare finally arrested a triple murder suspect, Peter Dube, who has been on the run for three years after he was deported from Mozambique where he was arrested for using a fake identity.

Peter Dube was arrested at the RGM International Airport upon landing where police officers read his rights and cuffed him.

Surprisingly, however, Peter looked calm as police advised him of his charges.

Dube allegedly shot three people dead, and injured his second wife in 2021, in a murderous rampage which still sends shock waves around Gweru.

He was quickly led to Gweru where he was detained awaiting a court appearance.

Peter Dube, a car dealer, shot his lover Shelton Chinhango and his wife’s best friend Gamuchirai Mudungwe.

He then allegedly turned the gun on Nyaradzo, the sister of his second wife Nyasha Nharingo.

After the incident, Dube fled to South Africa, before relocating to Eswatini, where he changed his identity to Xolile Mtsali.

He then travelled to Ireland, where he was arrested in Dublin last year for violating the country’s immigration laws.

He was using a fake identity and when he was arrested in Dublin, he refused to be deported to Zimbabwe.

He claimed he was a Mozambican citizen named Armando Quenete Muchanga.

Peter Dube was then deported to Mozambique and authorities there established that he was, indeed, a Zimbabwean.

They deported him to this country.

Peter will be taken for indications as police continue with investigations before he appears in court.

National police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, promised to furnish the nation with more details in due course.

“Police arrested Peter Dube upon arriving at the airport,” said Ass-Comm Nyathi.

“He was on the police wanted list for murder allegations that took place sometime in 2021,” he said.
