Machete Gang Gets Away With US$22 000 From Chegutu Home

Six unidentified armed robbers pounced on a house in Rifle Range, Chegutu around 2 AM on Saturday, 18 November, and robbed the occupants of more than US$22 000 in cash.

Armed robberies are arguably on the rise as businesspeople keep cash in their homes as banks are considered risky due to the Government’s knee-jerk policy announcements.

In a statement, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) said that robbers, who were armed with machetes, attacked a security guard who was on duty and took his cash and cellphone before forcibly gaining entry into the house.

They then attacked two occupants before seizing US$22 380 which was in the bedroom. Police said:

Police in Chegutu are investigating a case of robbery which occurred at a house in Rifle Range, Chegutu on 18/11/23 at around 0200 hours.
