He was also on the police wanted list for attempted murder, Robbery and Assault. The suspect is a ring leader of a machete and okapi knife brandishing gang circulating on the social media. He will appear in court soon

Of Late, Mashurugwi have become a menace throughout the country terrorizing innocent citizens and murdering rivals with impunity. Once constricted to gold mining areas, mashurugwi have spread terror throughout the country and are committing robberies in urban areas leading many to fear that the country is headed towards anarchy.

Owing tothe reluctance by the authorities to decisively deal with the threat, many are suspecting that this radical group is connected to the political elites. Recently a group of these machete thugs posted a video mimicking President Mnangagwa ‘s ‘2030 tenge tichiriko’ statement and bragging of how they were above the law and untouchable.

The arrest has been welcomed by citizens who felt that the ZRP was not doing enough to reign in gangs responsible for machete violence. Many citizens were also blasting the police ‘s heavy-handedness and brutality when dealing with anti-government protests but the same energy being non-existent when dealing with gangs responsible for machete violence.
