Fraudsters Implicate Defence Minister Muchinguri

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Mvurwi Thursday allegedly arrested four fraudsters, one of which is alleged to be the son-in-law of defence Minister Oppah-Muchinguri-Kashiri, who were fleecing Tobacco farmers.

It is alleged the suspects duped over 20 farmers an amount of RTGS$500 000.

Bulawayo24 was told that the four who are suspected to be faking names are Blessing Farai Nenhanga, Tapfumanei Ngarande, Timmy Kazhangaire and Lovebright Chakudunga.

Sources familiar with the incident allege the quartet were using a silver Alteza in duping farmers. Explained the source:

_The suspects tried to run away after the police pounced on them at Mega Save Mvurwi where they were targeting Tobacco farmers spotting their pin numbers and resetting the pin through dubious means._

_Police fired warning shots to stop the suspects before arresting them._

Meanwhile, the quartet appeared before Guruve magistrate Geraldine Mutsotso who granted them $20 000 bail each much to the disappointment of farmers who expected the alleged fraudsters to get a stiff penalty. Said the farmers:

_The court did not take time in granting the suspects bail. is it because that Muchinguri’s son in law is involved? we are not happy with the bail ruling._

It is alleged that one of the fraudsters, Kazhangaire, indicated that he is Minister of Defence Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri’s inlaw to both police and court.
